15th String Processing and Information Retrieval Symposium
Melbourne Australia, November 10-12

Recent Updates


SPIRE 2008 is the 15th Annual Edition of the Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval. SPIRE has its origins in the South American Workshop on String Processing which was first held in Belo Horizonte (Brazil, 1993). Starting in 1998, the focus of the workshop was broadened to include 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 last conferences have been in Padova (Italy), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Glasgow (UK), and Santiago (Chile). This year, the conference has been expanded to include the Asia-Pacific region. As in past editions, the proceedings of SPIRE 2008 was published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), Volume 5280 by Springer.
