[DMANET] CFP SISAP 2023 ("Similarity Search and Applications"), A Coruña, Spain, Oct 9-11, 2023

Call for Papers - SISAP 2023

|| 16th International Conference on Similarity Search and Applications
||            A Coruña, Oct 9-11, 2023



The International Conference on Similarity Search and
Applications (SISAP) is an annual forum for researchers and
application developers in the area of similarity data management. It
aims at the technological problems shared by numerous application
domains, such as data mining, information retrieval, multimedia
retrieval, computer vision, pattern recognition, computational
biology, geography, biometrics, machine learning, and many others that
make use of similarity search as a necessary supporting service. From
its roots in metric indexing, SISAP has expanded to become the only
international conference entirely devoted to all issues surrounding
the theory, design, analysis, practice, and application of
content-based and feature-based similarity search. Since 2021, SISAP
has been a CORE Rank B conference.

SISAP traditionally allows for research papers (full and short),
application papers (full and short), as well as demo (short), vision
(short), and position (short) papers.

The conference proceedings are published by Springer as a volume in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. A small selection
of the best papers presented at the conference will be recommended for
inclusion in a special issue of Information Systems. These extended
versions will be subject to a second round of peer review at the
journal. Best papers will be awarded along with a monetary prize.
