GOALS

      Researchers in many disciplines face the formidable task of
analyzing
massive amounts of high-dimensional and highly-structured data. This is
due in
part to recent advances in data collection and computing technologies.
As a
result, fundamental statistical research is being undertaken in a
variety of
different fields. Driven by the complexity of these new problems, and
fueled by
the explosion of available computer power, highly adaptive, non-linear
procedures are now essential components of modern "data analysis," a
term that
we liberally interpret to include speech and pattern recognition,
classification, data compression and signal processing. The development
of new,
flexible methods combines advances from many sources, including
approximation
theory, numerical analysis, machine learning, signal processing and
statistics.
The proposed workshop intends to bring together eminent experts from
these
fields in order to exchange ideas and forge directions for the future.
It also
intends to introduce the research topics to graduate students by
providing
travel support and by requiring the last speaker of each session to give
an
overview of the field.

PARTICIPATION AND CONTRIBUTED PAPERS

      Contributed presentations (talks and posters) are invited for
original
work related to the theme of the workshop. Submissions are to be in the
form of
an extended abstract, consisting of not more than 1 page (not including
references). Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women and minorities are strongly
encouraged to apply.

      Extended abstracts will be accepted in PostScript or PDF formats
and
should be mailed to nec@research.bell-labs.com. When submitting papers,
please
also indicate whether travel funds are necessary for attendance. The
deadline
for extended abstracts is October 27, 2000. Notification of acceptance
will be
sent out on Dec. 1, 2000.
