This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Multiple Classifier Systems, MCS 2007, held in Prague, Czech Republic in May 2007.
The 49 revised full papers presented together with two invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from more than 80 initial submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on kernel-based fusion, applications, boosting, cluster and graph ensembles, feature subspace ensembles, multiple classifier system theory, intramodal and multimodal fusion of biometric experts, majority voting, and ensemble learning.
