SPIRE 2006
13th Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval
11-13 October 2006, Glasgow, Scotland

Submission date: 14 April, 2006

SPIRE 2006 is the 13th Symposium on String Processing and Information
Retrieval. The first four editions focused primarily on string
processing and South America, and were called WSP (South American
Workshop on String Processing). Starting in 1998, the focus of the
workshop was broadened to include the area of information retrieval due
to its increasing relevance and its inter-relationship with the area of
string processing. In addition, since 2000, the conference venue has
been in Europe in even years.

The symposium will be organized by the University of Strathclyde, in
Glasgow. Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and the cultural, commercial
and convention capital of Scotland. Surrounded by some of the most
breathtaking scenery in Western Europe, the city is one of the liveliest
and most cosmopolitan destinations in Europe.
Glasgow boasts world famous art collections, the best shopping in the
United Kingdom outside London, and the most vibrant nightlife in


SPIRE 2006 covers research in all aspects of string processing,
information retrieval, computational biology, pattern matching,
semi-structured data, and related applications. Typical topics of
interest include (but are not limited to):

String Processing: dictionary algorithms, text searching, pattern
matching, text compression, text mining, natural language processing,
and automata based string processing.

Information Retrieval (IR): IR modelling, indexing, ranking and
filtering, interface design, visualization, cross-lingual IR systems,
multimedia IR, digital libraries, collaborative retrieval, and Web
related applications.

Interaction of biology and computation: DNA sequencing and applications
in molecular biology, evolution and phylogenetics, recognition of genes
and regulatory elements, and sequence driven protein structure

Information Retrieval languages and applications: XML, SGML, information
retrieval from semistructured data, text mining, and generation of
structured data from text.

All submissions will be reviewed by the international program committee.
All accepted research papers will be published in the conference
proceedings by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series. Detailed submission instructions can be found on the
