2nd International Workshop on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP 2009)

August 29 - 30, 2009
Prague, Czech Republic

The International Workshop on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP) is a conference devoted to similarity searching, with emphasis on metric space searching. It aims to fill in the gap left by the various scientific venues devoted to similarity searching in spaces with coordinates, by providing a common forum for theoreticians and practitioners around the problem of similarity searching in general
spaces (metric and non-metric) or using distance-based (as opposed to coordinate-based) techniques in general.

SISAP aims to become an ideal forum to exchange real-world, challenging and exciting examples of applications, new indexing techniques, common testbeds and benchmarks, source code, and up-to-date literature through a Web page serving the similarity searching community. Authors are expected to use the testbeds and code
from the SISAP Web site for comparing new applications, databases,
indexes and algorithms.

After the very successful first event in Cancun, Mexico in 2008, the second SISAP will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on August 29-30, 2009.
