The 15th Workshop on Compression, Text and Algorithms (WCTA 2020) is an annual workshop primarily intended for early-stage researchers to present their work on compression, data structures, and string processing topics. It will be held on October 16th, 2020, just after SPIRE.

We encourage junior members of our community to submit a one-page abstract (not including references) containing preferably unpublished work, work in progress, surveys of interest, and open problems, among others. WCTA has no published proceedings, so the results presented can also be submitted to other workshops and conferences. This year, WCTA will be online.

Please, submit the abstract in PDF format via email to darroyue@inf.utfsm.cl.

Programme Chair

Diego Arroyuelo (Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, Chile).
