Annual Conference of the Classification Society
June 16 - 18, 2011
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA*

The Classification Society is proud to host its annual conference on 
classification and clustering at Carnegie Mellon University from June 
16 - 18, 2011.  The conference has an inclusive focus on all facets of 
classification and clustering, including but not limited to: 
combinatorial optimization, data mining, machine learning, statistical 
classification, mixture modeling, etc.  In addition to addressing a 
wide array of methodological approaches to grouping data, the fields 
of applications have a rich tradition of being quite broad with some 
examples including educational testing, national security, federal 
policies, text mining, astronomy, and much more.
The Classification Society is requesting abstracts for oral 
presentations that are applicable to any area of classification.  The 
conference is not limited geographically and hopes to continue to 
attract attendees and presenters from around the globe.   Abstracts 
can be submitted to co-conference organizer:
Douglas Steinley ([log in to unmask]) by the deadline of April 
15th, 2011 with decisions of acceptance made by May 1st 2011.
Additional information regarding the conference (including 
registration fees and deadlines) can be found at:
