Summer StringMasters Prague 2019

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.


The international workshop StringMasters deals with various topics of stringology. The main aim is to bring together researchers at all levels (senior scientists, PhD students, and graduate students) from all over the world. The topic of the meeting is various stringology disciplines such as indexing, data compression, and bioinformatics.


The workshop does not have a fixed program; it is an informal meeting. Participants form spontaneously working groups to tackle the problems presented. So participants are encouraged to come to the meeting equipped with problems and interesting questions. There are usually 20–30 participants attending the meeting. This year, prof. Jan Holub and Dr. Jan Trávníček from our faculty confirmed their participation.
