    WSOM'01-Workshop on Self-Organizing Maps 2001
                      13-15 June, Lincoln, UK

                      Call for Participation

    Dear Colleague,

    You are cordially invited to join this prestigious international
    event. These workshops are highly selective and dedicated and have
    proved themselves to be the premier event for the Self-Organizing
    Neural Networks communities to present their recent findings and
    to meet in an intellectually stimulating, productive and friendly

    This year's workshop features 38 presentations from 15 countries,
    including a honorary lecture by Teuvo Kohonen and three keynote
    talks by international experts: Marc van Hulle, Lei Xu, and Samuel
    Kaski. Technical sessions will be held on Theory and Extension,
    Data Mining and Visualization, Financial Analysis, Document and
    Internet Analysis, Vector Quantization, Pattern Recognition,
    Hardware, Condition Monitoring, and Signal Processing.

    The programme and registration information is available on the
    conference Web site at http://wsom01.ee.umist.ac.uk.
    A copy of the programme in plain text is attached for your

    We look forward to seeing you in Lincoln.

    Best regards
