About this Item

488 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 7.0in. x 1.1in.The articles in this collection were presented at the 11th International Conference of the Chilean Computer Science Society held in Satiago, Chile on October 15 - 18, 1991. A record number of 85 submissions were received this year in response to the call for papers. They came from 19 countries in four continents. The articles presented here were selected by the program committee whose members were Jose Balcazar (Polytechnic University of Catalunya) Francois Bancilhon (ALTAIRINRIA) Marcos R. S. Borges (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro) Ignacio Casas (Universidad Cat6lica de Chile) J. L. Encarnaao (Zentrum fuer Grafische Datenverarbeitung) Hector Garcia-Molina (Princeton University) Michael Langston (University of Tennessee) Raphael Finkel (University of Kentucky) Tom Maibaum (Imperial College) Udi Manber, Chairman (University of Arizona) Michael Robson (Australian National University) The criteria for selection was based primarily on quality; we also considered relevance, clarity and the potential benefit to the community. In a time of great specialization, it is refreshing to see a conference devoted not to particular narrow fields but to all areas of computer science. Included are papers in algorithms, artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, databases, data structures, distributed systems, graphics and user interface, object-oriented systems, operating systems, programming languages, and the theory of computing. It was a pleasure reading high-quality papers in so many different areas of computer science. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About the Author:

Ricardo Baeza-Yates has been VP of Research and Chief Research Scientist at Yahoo Labs, based in Sunnyvale, California, since August 2014. Before that, he founded and led the labs in Barcelona and Santiago de Chile from 2006 2015. Between 2008 and 2012 he also oversaw the Haifa lab. In addition, he is also a part-time Professor at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona, Spain, where in 2005 he was an ICREA research professor. Until 2004 he was a Professor, and before that founder and Director, of the Center for Web Research at the Department of Computing Science of the University of Chile (from where he is currently on a leave of absence). In 1989, he obtained a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Waterloo, Canada. Before that, he obtained two master degrees (M.Sc. CS & M.Eng. EE) and an electronic engineering degree from the University of Chile in Santiago. He is co-author of the best-seller Modern Information Retrieval textbook, published in 1999 by Addison-Wesley, with a second enlarged edition in 2011, that won the ASIST 2012 Book of the Year award. He is also co-author of the 2nd edition of the Handbook of Algorithms and Data Structures, Addison-Wesley, 1991 and co-editor of Information Retrieval: Algorithms and Data Structures, Prentice-Hall, 1992. In addition, he is the author or co-author of more than 500 other publications. From 2002-2004, he was elected to the board of governors of the IEEE Computer Society and in 2012 he was elected for the ACM Council. He received the Organization of American States award for young researchers in exact sciences (1993), the Graham Medal for innovation in computing given by the University of Waterloo to distinguished ex-alumni (2007), the CLEI Latin American distinction for contributions to CS in the region (2009), and the National Award of the Chilean Association of Engineers (2010), among other distinctions. In 2003 he was the first computer scientist to be elected to the Chilean Academy of Sciences and since 2010 has been a founding member of the Chilean Academy of Engineering.
