inception at McMaster University in the summer of 2007, StringMasters has spread like the
common cold and become a worldwide phenomenon:
Not wishing to be left out, the Algorithms Research Group in the Department of Computing & Software at McMaster organizes a Waiting For Spring: WFS 2011 meeting of StringMasters, a winter worskhop in stringology and related matters extending over the two-week period 28 February--11 March, 2011. Interested researchers and their students are invited to attend in order to work on string processing problems of current interest, especially those that relate to applications in data compression, data mining, computational biology, and musicology.
Yours, WFS Chair WFS (W. F. Smyth)
