    THE SEVENTEENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MACHINE LEARNING

                       June 29-July 2, 2000
                        Stanford University


The Seventeenth International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML-2000)
will be held at Stanford University from June 29 to July 2, 2000. The
conference will bring together researchers to exchange ideas and report
recent progress in the computational study of learning.

ICML-2000 will include 150 presentations on learning in classification,
robotic control, planning, natural language, text processing, computer
vision, user modeling, and other domains. Details about ICML-2000,
including the conference schedule, are available at

             http://www-csli.stanford.edu/icml2k/

The meeting will feature invited talks by Jerome Friedman, Paul Utgoff,
and Haym Hirsh, as well as six workshops on Sunday, July 2. Registration
for the conference is $250. We expect hotel space in Silicon Valley to
be scarce, so please make your reservations soon.

ICML-2000 will be collocated with COLT-2000 and UAI-2000. Registrants to
any of these meetings will be able to attend the technical sessions of
the others at no additional cost. The conference has received support
from DaimlerChrysler, ISLE, Motorola, IBM, CSLI, Hewlett-Packard, and
NASA Ames. If you have questions about ICML-2000, send electronic mail
