Our aim for IDA-2005 is to bring together a wide variety of
researchers concerned with extracting knowledge from data, including
people from statistics, machine learning, neural networks, computer

stimulate interaction between these different areas, so that more

This is the sixth Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis after
the successful symposia
and IDA-95 (Baden-Baden).
The proceedings have been published as
LNCS 3646 in the
