This meeting will be held partly as a joint meeting with the DIMACS workshop on
Clustering Problems in Biological Networks May 9 - 11, 2006.
The CSNA meeting is co-sponsored by The Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
This is the annual meeting of the Classification Society of North America,(CSNA). Further information about CSNA may be obtained from its web site http://www.classification-society.org/csna/csna.html. The theme of the meeting is Network Data Analysis and Data Mining: Applications in Biology, Sociology, Computer Science, Intrusion Detection, and Related Areas
Further information about the meeting may be obtained by email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals for special sessions, contributed papers and invited speakers are welcome and may be submitted via this email address.
This meeting will be held partly as a joint meeting with the DIMACS workshop "Clustering Problems in Biological Networks" that is being held May 9-11, 2006 at DIMACS. See: http://dimacs.rutgers.edu/Workshops/Clustering/. Both DIMACS and the CSNA cordially invite you to participate in these meetings. Registration for the CSNA meeting alone is welcome, and there will also be a special combined rate available for people wishing to attend both events.
The general theme involves data analysis of various types of networks, and as is typical in DIMACS sponsored events, the meeting will involve interdisciplinary approaches that will include ideas from discrete mathematics, statistics, and computer science. Background material will be provided by means of tutorials and expository talks, and there will be a strong emphasis on the solution of real world problems. The formation of research alliances for future work will be encouraged. CSNA meetings are traditionally informal and interdisciplinary. The annual meeting of CSNA will be held as part of this meeting, as will the meeting of its Board of Directors.
