This quantity of the Lecture Notes in desktop technological know-how sequence presents a c- prehensive, state of the art survey of contemporary advances in string processing and knowledge retrieval. It comprises invited and study papers offered on the tenth overseas Symposium on String Processing and knowledge Retrieval, SPIRE 2003, held in Manaus, Brazil. SPIRE 2003 got fifty four complete submissions from 17 nations, specifically: - gentina(2), Australia(2), Brazil(9),Canada(1),Chile (4),Colombia(2),Czech Republic (1), Finland (10), France (1), Japan (2), Korea (5), Malaysia (1), P- tugal (2), Spain (6), Turkey (1), united kingdom (1), united states (4) – the numbers in parentheses point out the variety of submissions from that state. within the nontrivial job of choosing the papers to be released in those complaints we have been lucky to expect a really foreign software committee with forty three participants, represe- ing all continents yet one. those humans, in flip, used the aid of forty exterior referees. in the course of the overview processall yet a number of papers had 4 reviewsinstead of the standard 3, and on the finish 21 submissions have been authorized to be p- lished as complete papers, yielding an reputation expense of approximately 38%. an extra set of six brief papers was once additionally permitted. The technical application spans over the 2 well-de?ned scopes of SPIRE (string processing and data retrieval) with a few papers additionally concentrating on very important software domain names equivalent to bioinformatics.
