Call For Papers

30th International Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval
September 26-28, Pisa, Italy

SPIRE 2023 covers research in all aspects of string processing, information retrieval, computational biology, and related applications. Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

String Processing: string pattern matching, text indexing, data structures for string processing, text compression, compressed data structures, compressed string processing, text mining, 2D pattern matching, automata based string processing, combinatorics on words.
Information Retrieval: Web search. Retrieval models and ranking. Theoretical models and foundations of information retrieval and access. Efficiency and scalability, e.g., efficient data structures for IR, indexing, etc. Queries and query analysis. Content analysis for search. Knowledge acquisition. Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing for search, e.g., Core ML, Question answering, Conversational systems, Explicit semantics. Knowledge representation and reasoning. User-centric aspects of IR including user interfaces, behavior modeling, privacy, and interactive systems. Evaluation. Fairness, accountability, transparency. Domain-specific applications, e.g., local and mobile search, social search, multimedia search, health, digital libraries, etc.
Computational Biology: DNA sequencing, assembly, alignments, read error correction, metagenomics, transcriptomics, gene and regulatory element recognition, motif finding, pangenomics, variants discovery.


SPIRE 2023 invites submissions in two categories:

Long papers: Up to 12 pages, excluding references and optional appendices.
Short papers: Up to 6 pages, excluding references and optional appendices.

The reviewing process will be single-blind, namely each submission should not be anonymized.

Submissions should be submitted electronically via EasyChair.

As in past editions, the proceedings of SPIRE 2023 will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The use of either LaTeX or Word LNCS templates is mandatory. Suitable templates are available at the Springer Website and at Overleaf. Do not change the margin size or the font, do not make a separate title page, etc.: use the LNCS style file as given. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not permitted.

A Best Paper Award (1,000 EUR prize supported by Springer) will be given to the author(s) of the most outstanding work presented at the conference.
