StringMasters

StringMasters is a workshop that takes place several times a year in different cities around the world. Some workshops are organised by The Prague Stringology Club from the Department of Theoretical Computer Science. The topics of the workshop are the various stringology disciplines such as indexing, data compression, or bioinformatics.

The meeting is informal, without a fixed program. Participants form groups according to their interests. The main aim is to bring together researchers in string algorithms at all levels—senior scientists, PhD students, and graduate students.

Current Year

Within August 29–31, the 36th international scientific meeting Summer StringMasters Prague 2019 is held at the Faculty of Information Technology, CTU. The topics are various stringology disciplines. Participation is free of charge, but you need to register. This year, one meeting already took place at the University of Pisa.

Previous Years

The history of StringMasters goes back to 2007 when the first meeting was held at McMaster University in Canada. The StringMasters have already had more than thirty meetings at various international universities. Our faculty hosts a meeting in 2019 for the sixth time.
