Machine learning methods for ecological applications
Biological Sciences, MMU, Manchester. 19 April 1997.
The Ecological Computing group of the British Ecological Society are
organizing a one day workshop on 'Machine Learning Methods in Ecology'.
The aim of the meeting to is to explore the potential of a range of
these techniques for ecological problems. We have organised the meeting
so that most people will avoid the need of an overnight stay in
Manchester. Offers of posters are welcomed.
The meeting will be on Saturday 19th April 1997 in the Department of
Biological Sciences, Manchester Metropolitan University, Oxford Road,
Manchester. There is a charge of 15pounds per person, which includes
morning and afternoon coffee and lunch.
Requests for further information should be sent to Sue King,
