This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Multiple Classifier Systems, MCS 2005, held in Seaside, CA, USA in June 2005.

The 42 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and are organized in topical sections on boosting, combination methods, design of ensembles, performance analysis, and applications. They exemplify significant advances in the theory, algorithms, and applications of multiple classifier systems – bringing the different scientific communities together.
