Similarity search is my favorite research subject. But it was only two years ago that I became aware of SISAP. I remember, at that point, that taking a look at the former editions, I got the impression SISAP was exactly the kind of event you would want to attend : small, cozy, and all the cool people were there.
So I didn’t hesitate to accept when my dear colleague Prof. Agma Traina, who’ll be Chair at the Program Committee this year, invited me as a member of the Committee. I hope I’ll be able to attend, but even if that doesn’t happen, I am glad to take some part at this interesting community.
The call for papers has already launched, with deadline for abstract submissions on May 12th. If you work on similarity search, related topics or applications, please consider sending a contribution. The event will take place in Los Cabos, Mexico, on October, 29–31.
