Classification Society 2013


Classification Society Conference 2013, Milwaukee, 13-15 Jun 2013; Deadline 30 Apr

The Classification Society conference will be held in Milwaukee in June, 2013.  The Classification Society is a society “whose purposes are to promote the scientific study of classification and clustering”.  The society is interdisciplinary and has members in many academic disciplines including but not limited to statistics, education, data mining, business, psychology, medicine, and biology. Interdisciplinary research is becoming more important.  The major funding agencies are increasingly launching calls for Interdisciplinary research and many major innovations are made by Interdisciplinary teams.  The Classification Society conference allows you to learn about cutting edge research, meet with researchers from your both from own discipline and from other disciplines, and most of all to have fun!

Milwaukee is the quintessential Midwestern city.  It is the ancestral home of the American brewing industry.  The Pabst and Miller breweries still produce beer and have been joined by several boutique brewing companies.  The Milwaukee area has a vibrant business scene and is home to major corporations such as Harley Davidson, Rockwell Automation, and Kohl’s. After the long hard winter, Milwaukee comes alive in the summer.  Milwaukee is famous for its two week long Summerfest music festival, as well as numerous ethnic and Lakefront festivals.
