SISAP Conference

Since its foundation in 2008, DISA members have participated in the organization of the International Conference on Similarity Search and Applications (SISAP), an annual forum for researchers and application developers in the area of similarity data management. SISAP aims at the technological problems shared by numerous application domains, such as data mining, information retrieval, computer vision, pattern recognition, computational biology, geography, biometrics, machine learning, and many others that need similarity searching as a necessary supporting service.
