SPIRE 2009 Calls for Paper

SPIRE 2009 is 16th edition of the Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval. The event has been held under this title annually since 1998. The four first events concentrated mainly on string processing (SP) and were held in South America under the title South American Workshop on String Processing (WSP) in 1993, 1995, 1996, and 1997. WSP was transformed into SPIRE in 1998 when the scope of the event was broadened to include also information retrieval (IR). The change was motivated by the increasing relevance of information retrieval and its close inter-relationship with the general area of string processing. From 1999 to 2007, the venue of SPIRE was alternating between South and Latin America (odd years) and Europe (even years). This pattern was broken when SPIRE 2008 was held in Australia.

The scope of the SPIRE series of conferences includes not only fundamental algorithms in SP and IR but also contributions in different application areas such as computational biology, DNA sequencing, WWW based IR systems, and IR related languages like SGML and XML. Given its inter-disciplinary nature, SPIRE offers a singular opportunity for researchers from computer science, information science, and engineering interested in working with problems related to these areas to meet and discuss how to collaborate towards the best solutions.
Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
String Processing: Dictionary algorithms, Text searching, Pattern matching, Text and sequence compression, Automata based string processing.
Information Retrieval: Information retrieval models, Indexing, Ranking and filtering, Interface design, Visualization, Benchmarking.
Natural language processing:Text analysis, Text mining, Machine learning, Information extraction, Language models (both structural and semantic), Knowledge representation.
Search applications and usage: Cross-lingual information access systems, Multimedia information access, Digital libraries, Collaborative retrieval and Web related applications, Semi-structured data retrieval, Evaluation.
Interaction of biology and computation: DNA sequencing and applications in molecular biology, Evolution and phylogenetics, Recognition of genes and regulatory elements, Sequence driven protein structure prediction.

Important dates
Paper submission deadline: 1 May 2009 (International Date Line West, corresponds to 2 May 2009 12:00 UTC/GMT)
Author notification: 5 June 2009
Camera ready paper: 15 June 2009

IEEE Intelligent Systems Call for Papers: Mobile Information Retrieval

Mobile information retrieval (mobile IR) is concerned with the indexing and retrieval of information such as text, graphics, animation, sound, speech, image, and video, and their possible combinations for use in mobile devices with wireless network connectivity.

The proliferation of wireless and mobile devices such as personal digital assistants and mobile phones has created a large demand for mobile information content as well as effective mobile IR techniques. New technologies are needed for representing, modeling, indexing, and retrieving mobile data.

This special issue will focus on contributions that expand the state of the art of building intelligent systems for mobile IR. To be considered for this special issue, submissions related to information retrieval on the mobile Web and mobile Internet must address issues specific to mobile IR. We thus solicit original papers on research that

· effectively indexes and retrieves mobile information,

· can be integrated into unified mobile browsing and retrieval systems, and

· gives new insight into scalable algorithms allowing access to very large mobile databases.

We are especially interested in papers that address

· automatic summarization and personalization in mobile information;

· content adaptation for small display devices;

· content-based extraction, indexing, annotation, and retrieval of mobile data;

· context-aware information processing;

· data mining of query logs, clicks, and Web traffic on mobile devices;

· efficient retrieval models and query processing of mobile information from distributed databases;

· extraction of useful semantics in mobile information for indexing and retrieval;

· knowledge discovery through content and keyword fusion in mobile summarization, indexing, and retrieval;

· location-based search for mobile devices;

· mobile learning and user profiling for mobile information retrieval;

· mobile peer tagging and knowledge propagation;

· mobile retrieval across multiple media types, network conditions, and user preferences;

· multimodal user interface technologies;

· scalable browsing algorithms for large mobile databases; and

· spatial data management, mining spatial data generated by mobile users.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions due for review: 13 July 2009

Submissions should be 3,500 to 7,500 words (counting a standard figure or table as 200 words) and should follow the magazine’s style and presentation guidelines (see ).
