Subject: RE: JOC Invited Papers (fwd)


At Interface/CSNA 2005 two fantastic presentations were given that are to
appear as Special Invited Papers in this year's Journal of Classification:

        Jon Kettenring: The Practice of Cluster Analysis
        JoC, Issue 1 of 2006

        Jerry Friedman: Recent Advances in Predictive (Machine) Learning
        JoC, Issue 2 of 2006

I expect these to be well worth having and would encourage anyone
interested to contact Stan Sclove ([log in to unmask]) about subscriptions

(CSNA membership form attached)


Thanks
Bill
