2nd International Workshop on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP)
August 29.-30. 2009, Prague, Czech Republic
The International Workshop on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP)
is a 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.
After the very successful first event in Cancun, Mexico in 2008, the second SISAP will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on August 29-30, 2009.
The four best papers will be invited to a special issue of
Information Systems (Elsevier). SISAP 2009 is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGSPATIAL and
the papers will be indexed in the ACM Digital Library.
