33rd Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching

Prague, Czech Republic, June 27–29, 2022

Call for papers

Papers on original research unpublished elsewhere in all areas related to combinatorial pattern matching and its applications are sought.

The proceedings will be published by LIPIcs (of Dagstuhl).

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
  • Symbolic computing
  • Text searching and indexing

Important dates

  • Submission deadline: January 29, 2022 (AoE)
  • Notification: March 29, 2022
  • Final version: April 12, 2022

Submission

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 15 single-spaced pages on A4 (or US letter) paper, including the title page (containing title, authors, affiliations, e-mail addresses and a short abstract) but excluding the references. Please note that 15 pages is an upper bound and shorter submissions are more than welcome. The authors are required to use the LaTeX style file supplied by Dagstuhl (LIPIcs). Papers must be submitted as a single file in PDF format.

Additional material intended for the referees but not for publication in the final version - for example details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit.

Papers submitted for review should represent original, previously unpublished work and surveys of important results.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.

At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant. We are carefully watching the situation with the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to conduct a physical event, but we will certainly offer the possibility of remote participation (with a significantly lower registration fee) for those who are unable to come due to travel restrictions or other circumstances. In the worst case, we will move the event online but are not planning to postpone it.
