Get-together for string algorithms researchers in Helsinki

Event type: 
Other event
Event time: 
08.09.2011 - 14:00 - 17:00
Exactum C222

We are organizing a gathering for string algorithms researchers in the Helsinki area. The idea is to get a view of what is happening in this research area in Helsinki. We would also like to gauge interest in setting up more regular meetings (something like every other week) for example in journal club style.

The program will start with a guest lecture by Johannes Fischer from KIT, Institut für Theoretische Informatik, Karlsruhe, Germany. Johannes is visiting us until September 10th. We will then continue with the talks by researchers from the Helsinki area. See the detailed program below. Please note that we will start at 2 pm sharp (not quarter past).

Please distribute this announcement to your colleagues and students who might be interested in attending.



14:00 Johannes Fischer: Inducing the LCP-Array

Abstract: We show how to modify the linear-time construction algorithm for suffix arrays based on induced sorting (Nong et al., DCC'09) such that it computes the array of longest common prefixes (LCP-array) as well. Practical tests show that this outperforms recent LCP-array construction algorithms (Gog and Ohlebusch, ALENEX'11).
