The annual CPM meeting which provides an international forum for research in combinatorial pattern matching and related applications is discussed. It addresses issues of searching and matching strings and more complicated patterns such as trees, regular expressions, graphs, point sets, and arrays. The meeting also deals with problems in computational biology, data compression, data mining, coding, information retrieval, and natural language processing and pattern recognition. The first twenty one meetings were held in Paris, London, Tucson, Padova, Asilomar, Helsinki, Laguna Beach, Aarhus and Piscataway. Twenty five extended abstracts were chosen after a refereeing process, and three presentations were invited to the conference.
