Synopses & Reviews
This volume contains the 22 papers accepted for presentation at the Third Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching held April 29 to May 1, 1992, in Tucson, Arizona; it constitutes the first conference proceedings entirely devoted to combinatorial pattern matching (CPM). CPM deals withissues of searching and matching of strings and other more complicated patterns such as trees, regular expressions, extended expressions, etc. in order to derive combinatorial properties for such structures. As an interdisciplinary field of growing interest, CPM is related to research in information retrieval, pattern recognition, compilers, data compression, and program analysis as well as to results, problems and methods from combinatorial mathematics and molecular biology.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 16th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching, CPM 2005, held in Jeju island, Korea on June 19-22, 2005.
The 37 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 129 submissions. They constitute original research contributions in combinatorial pattern matching and its applications. Among the application fields addressed are computational biology, bioinformatics, genomics, proteinomics, data compression, Sequence Analysis and Graphs, information retrieval, data analysis, and pattern recognition.
