SPIRE 2020 is the 27th International Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval. SPIRE started in 1993 as the South American Workshop on String Processing. This is the first time that SPIRE is held in the United States of America allowing attendees to visit Orlando, Florida. 

List of Topics

All aspects of string processing, information retrieval, computational biology, and related applications are covered. 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.
  • Information Retrieval (IR): ​ retrieval models, indexing, evaluation, algorithms and data structures for IR, efficient implementation of IR systems, interface design, text classification and clustering, text analysis and mining, collaborative and content-based filtering, topic modeling for IR, search tasks (Web search, enterprise search, desktop search, legal search, cross-lingual retrieval, federated search, (micro) blog search, XML retrieval, multimedia retrieval), digital libraries.
  • Computational Biology: high-throughput DNA sequencing (assembly, read alignment, read error correction, metagenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics), evolution and phylogenetics, gene and regulatory element recognition, motif finding, protein structure prediction.
