=========== SISAP 2013 - CALL FOR PAPERS =============== We apologize if you receive duplicates of this CFP. Please feel free to distribute it to those who might be interested. SISAP 2013: 6th International Conference on Similarity Search and Applications October 2-4, 2013 A Coruna, Spain Web site: http://www.sisap.org/2013 SCOPE The International Conference on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP) is an annual forum for researchers and application developers in the area of similarity data management. It aims at the technological problems shared by numerous application domains, such as data mining, information retrieval, computer vision, pattern recognition, computational biology, geography, biometrics, machine learning, and many others that need similarity searching as a necessary supporting service. The SISAP initiative www.sisap.org aims to become a forum to exchange real-world, challenging and innovative examples of applications, new indexing techniques, common test-beds and benchmarks, source code and up-to-date literature through its web page, serving the similarity search community. Traditionally, SISAP puts emphasis on the distance-based searching, but in general the conference concerns both the effectiveness and efficiency aspects of any similarity search problem. The series started in 2008 as a workshop and has developed over the years into an international conference with LNCS proceedings. As in previous editions, a small selection of the best papers presented at the conference will be recommended for publication in a major journal. In October 2013, SISAP will take place in A Coruna, Spain. TOPICS OF INTEREST The specific topics include, but are not limited to: - Similarity queries - k-NN, range, reverse NN, top-k, etc. - Similarity operations - joins, ranking, classification, categorization, filtering, etc. - Evaluation techniques for similarity queries and operations - Merging/combining multiple similarity modalities - Cost models and analysis for similarity data processing - Scalability issues and high-performance similarity data management - Feature extraction for similarity-based data findability - Test collections and benchmarks - Performance studies, benchmarks, and comparisons - Similarity Search over outsourced data repositories - Similarity search cloud services - Languages for similarity databases - New modes of similarity for complex data understanding - Applications of similarity-based operations - Image, video, voice, and music (multimedia) retrieval systems - Similarity for forensics and security KEY-NOTE SPEAKERS - Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Yahoo! Research - Jiri Matas, Czech Technical University SUBMISSION GUIDELINES Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished papers on their research in the area of similarity search and applications. Papers should present original research contributions which bring out the importance of algorithms to applications. SISAP submissions can be of three kinds (full details will be announced shortly): - Research papers (long and short): SISAP accepts both full and short papers. The full papers are expected to be descriptions of complete technical work, while the short papers will describe interesting, innovative ideas, which nevertheless require more work to mature - vision papers should also be submitted as short papers. All papers, regardless of size, will be given an entry in the conference proceedings. - Case-studies and applications: Submissions describe applications of existing similarity search technologies to interesting problems, including a description of the encountered challenges, how they were overcome, and the lessons learned. All papers on this track will be given an entry in the conference proceedings and a presentation slot, though the presentation slot duration may be shorter than for full research papers. - Demonstration papers: Submissions should provide the motivation for the demonstrated concepts, the information about the technology and the system to be demonstrated (including a system description, functionality and figures when applicable), and should state the significance of the contribution. Evaluation criteria for the demonstration proposals include: the novelty, the technical advances and challenges, and the overall practical attractiveness of the demonstrated system. Demonstration papers will also be given an entry in the conference proceedings - online demos are expected at the conference. IMPORTANT DATES - Paper submission: April 2013 - Notification: June 2013 - Final version: July 2013 - Conference: October 2,3, and 4, 2013 ORGANIZATION Program Committee Chairs: - Nieves R.
