Welcome to the home page of the 20th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching that will be held in Lille, France, on June 22 - 24, 2009.
Papers in all areas related to combinatorial pattern matching and its applications will be considered, including, but not limited to, coding and data compression, computational biology, data mining, information retrieval, natural language processing, web algorithms, pattern recognition and discovery, string algorithms, string processing in databases, text searching and word statistics. Both papers reporting on original research unpublished elsewhere and surveys of important results are welcome.
The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag series, Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching started in 1990, and has since taken place every year. Proceedings of previous CPM conferences were published as LNCS volumes 644, 684, 807, 937, 1075, 1264, 1448, 1645, 1848, 2089, 2373, 2676, 3109, 3537, 4009, 4580 and 5029.
