Researchers gather for string algorithms

This event, bringing together several researchers from the UK, together with local researchers in string algorithms led by Bill Smyth, was held 3-5 July in the Information Technology Building.  Many open problems in stringology and bioinformatics were discussed, including a collection of interconnected topics introduced by Professor Iliopoulos of King's College London.  Several on-line participants also took part via Skype.

StringMasters was introduced here at McMaster in 2007 as a new model for scientific meetings and, as shown under Previous Venues on the conference website:

has been held almost 30 times since.  This meeting made significant progress with several fundamental problems, and corresponding research papers are expected to be submitted as a result.
