String algorithms and related data structures are gaining an ever-increasing interest as they form the backbone of many current data processing tools in genomics. Motivated by this fact, we are organizing the StringBio’18, International Workshop on String String Algorithms in Bioinformatics in Orlando from 25th to 27th of October. Focused solely on string algorithms in bioinformatics, StringBio primarily aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and students, with a different format that is composed of short tutorials and research talks. The keynote lectures will be given by Prof. Srinivas Aluru and Prof. Martin Farach-Colton.

We will be happy to see you at StringBio’18. Please check the website for further details. By the way, there is NO registration fee.
