SPIRE 2010 Los Cabos

I recently attended the String Processing and Information Retrieval conference (SPIRE 2010). In terms of content, this conference far exceeded my expectations. Excellent presentations on the latest research. Stuff I'd *never* even heard of: Wavelet Trees for example. Very friendly presenters, who enthusiastically spent time with me between presentations to thoroughly teach some of the concepts.

 Yahoo! Research presents Time Explorer

Microsoft Research Keynote

No complaints about the venue either. Met so many cool and interesting researchers in the field of IR (which is basically "search").
