Eventos : SPIRE 2012 - Call for Papers - Deadline for submissions: May 7, 2012 

19th Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval (SPIRE)
21 - 25 October 2012, Cartagena de Indias, Colombia


Deadline for submissions: May 7, 2012

SPIRE 2012 is the 19th edition of the International Symposium on
String Processing and Information Retrieval, and will be organized by
the Information Technologies Research Group of the Universidad
Autónoma de Bucaramanga. The conference will be held in conjunction
with the 8th Latin American Web Congress, LA-WEB 2012. SPIRE 2012 will
also feature a full day of tutorials and a full day of workshops.

SPIRE 2012 will take place in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Cartagena
is considered the most important tourist destination of Colombia. In
1984, Cartagena’s colonial walled city and fortress were designated a
UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city encapsulates all the charm of
Spanish colonial architecture, the republic period and today, the
attractions of intense night-life, cultural festivals, exotic scenery,
superb beaches, delicious food and a wide offer of hotels and tourist
infrastructure. Cartagena has an international airport with daily
flights to and from different national and international destinations.

The scope of SPIRE includes not only fundamental algorithms in string
processing and information retrieval, but also application areas such
as computational biology, DNA sequencing, and Web mining. Given its
interdisciplinary nature, SPIRE offers a unique opportunity for
researchers from these different areas to meet and network. Because of
this reason interdisciplinary papers are encouraged.

Typical topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Processing: Dictionary algorithms, Text searching, Pattern matching,
Text and sequence compression, Succinct and compressed indexing,
Automata-based string processing;

* Biological Sequence Processing: Analysis of DNA and RNA sequencing
data, Molecular sequence processing, Recognition of genes and
regulatory elements, Comparative genomics and population genetics;

* Information Retrieval: Models, Indexing, Ranking and filtering,
Interface design for IR, Evaluation issues in IR, Text analysis, Text
mining, Text classification and clustering, Information extraction,
Language models and topic models for search related-tasks, Efficient
implementation of IR systems, Algorithms and data structures for IR;

* Search-related tasks: Cross-lingual information retrieval,
Multimedia / multi-modal IR, Recommendation and collaborative
filtering, Semi-structured data retrieval, Blog retrieval.

SPIRE 2012 welcomes either long papers (12 pages) or short papers
(6-pages). Additional pages might be included in an appendix for long
proofs or additional results needed to support the paper, but the
final outcome will not be based on it. Submissions must be anonymous
and formatted using the Springer LNCS style. At least three reviewers
will evaluate each paper in double-blind mode based on its
originality, quality, methodological robustness, and significance of
theoretical and/or practical contribution. Papers must be in English,
must be unpublished, and must not be under submission to another
conference or journal for the entire duration of the reviewing
process. Accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings published by
Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
