The year 2014 marks the quarter-of-a-century milestone for the CPM symposium series. This special edition will celebrate the many contributions made by the CPM Community to the vast area of algorithms and perhaps more importantly to break-throughs in applications ranging from document searching to bioinformatics and computational biology. CPM 2014 will feature special sessions and lectures offering a retrospective as well as help in identifying the most promising future directions for this uniquely vibrant and useful specialty.

Papers in all areas related to combinatorial pattern matching and its applications are sought. Both papers reporting on original research unpublished elsewhere and surveys of important results are welcome.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.

Topics of interest

Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
  - Bioinformatics and computational biology
  - Coding and data compression
  - Combinatorics on words
  - Data mining
  - Information retrieval
  - Natural language processing
  - Pattern discovery
  - String algorithms
  - String processing in databases
  - Text searching

Important dates

Submission deadline: January 10, 2014
Notification: February 20, 2014
Final version: March 5, 2014


Submission is through the EasyChair conference system. Please make your submission here. The submission process requires registration to create an EasyChair account prior to submission.

Submission format
The authors should submit an extended abstract not exceeding 10 single-spaced pages on A4 (or US letter) paper, including references, figures, title, authors, affiliations, e-mail addresses, and a short (one paragraph) abstract. The authors are strongly advised to use the LaTeX style file supplied by Springer Verlag for Lecture Notes in Computer Science here.

Papers must be submitted as a single file in PDF format.

Additional material intended for the referee but not for publication in the final version - for example details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit.

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work and surveys of important results. At the time the extended abstract is submitted to CPM, and for the entire review period, the paper (or essentially the same paper) should not be under review by any other conference with published proceedings or by a scientific journal.
