WCTA 2017 – 2nd Call for Participation – Deadline Extension

********************************************************************

The submission deadline has been extended to August 25th, 2017, anywhere
on Earth.

********************************************************************

The 12th Workshop on Compression, Text and Algorithms (WCTA) will be
held at Eurostars Centrale Palace in Palermo, Italy, September 29,
2017, the day after SPIRE’17.
This is an annual satellite workshop of SPIRE mostly focusing on
compression, data structures and string processing topics.

We invite an abstract for presentation (15-25 minutes) of preferably
unpublished work, published results, work in progress, surveys of
interest, open problems, etc.

Since WCTA has no proceedings, it will not preclude a possibility of
submitting presenting results to other conferences or publishing them
in journals.

We particularly encourage submissions from junior members of our
community.

WCTA will be free for all attendees.

Please submit abstracts by emailing copies (preferably PDF) to both
WCTA co-chairs (addresses below).

Important dates
(new) Abstract deadline: August 25th, 2017, anywhere on Earth
Notification: August 27th, 2017

WCTA will feature two invited talks on “Engineering meets Biomedicine”
by Knut Reinert from Freie Universität Berlin and “(Quasi) Succinct
Data Structures and Information Retrieval” by Sebastiano Vigna from

SPONSOR:
BIRDS Project: Bioinformatics and Information Retrieval Data Structures

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020
