Call for papers

PSC 2019 is the 23rd Stringology conference. It is an international conference focusing on stringology and related areas. It is organized annually by the Prague Stringology Club, a research group in the Department of Theoretical Computer Science at the Faculty of Information Technology, Czech Technical University in Prague. The proceedings of recent conferences are indexed in DBLP, Scopus, and Web of Science of Thomson Reuters.

Stringology is a part of algorithmic research that deals with the processing of text strings. It has existed for at least thirty years and developed into a respected subfield of its own. The last twenty years have produced an explosion of new results. This progress is due in part to the human genome effort, an area to which string algorithms can make important contributions. String processing extended into tree processing is called arbology.

The topics of the conference include but are not limited to:

Important dates:


Authors of accepted papers are required to submit full source codes of their papers (up to 15 pages, A4 page format). Please, follow submission instructions, EasyChair cannot be used.

There are several hotels in Dejvice quarter (Hotel Diplomat, Hotel DAP, Hotel Crowne Plaza just to mention a few).

We found out that our negotiated price cannot beat the prices available via some large booking servers. Please use your favourite one to make your hotel booking.


The Prague Stringology Conference 2019 will be held at the Faculty of information technology, CTU in Prague.

The faculty is situated just a few minutes from the Prague Castle, the dominant symbol of Prague, from where you can visit all the interesting places and sights of historical Prague – the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, Lesser Town and others. The CTU campus is located in the centre of one of the most important Prague's districts of Dejvice, near the underground station of route A. This route has direct bus connection from the Prague Airport. How to get to Dejvice. (Note there is a new section of metro so the bus from the airport ends at Veleslavín station.)

Eduroam is available on-site, Eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool.


PSC 2019 was preceded by Prague Stringology Workshops in 1996-2000 and by Prague Stringology Conferences starting from 2001. Each year proceedings are prepared for the conference. They are published by Czech Technical University in Prague and are also available from the PSC web pages. Selected papers from the later workshops were also published in a special issue of the journal Kybernetika (IF in 2009 was 0.445). Selected papers from the 2002-2006, 2008 conferences were then published in the Nordic Journal of Computing, Journal of Automata, Languages and Combinatorics, International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science (IF in 2013 was 0.326), and Discrete Applied Mathematics (IF in 2013 was 0.677).
