1st International Workshop
on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP)
April 11-12, 2008, Cancún, Mexico
The International Workshop on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP)
is a new conference devoted to similarity searching, with emphasis on metric
space searching. It aims to fill in the gap left by the various scientific
venues devoted to similarity searching in spaces with coordinates, by providing
a common forum for theoreticians and practitioners around the problem of
similarity searching in general spaces (metric and non-metric) or using
distance-based (as opposed to coordinate-based) techniques in general.
SISAP aims to become an ideal forum to exchange real-world, challenging and
exciting examples of applications, new indexing techniques, common testbeds and
benchmarks, source code, and up-to-date literature through a Web page serving
the similarity searching community. Authors are expected to use the testbeds
and code from the SISAP Web site for comparing new applications, databases,
indexes and algorithms.
