Abstract: Data clustering has been a well-studied research field for a long time. One of the latest trends in this area
is the application of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) in clustering which has good potential for improvements.
This paper presents an approach to using Particle Swarm Optimization to cluster data. It is shown how PSO can be
used to find the centroids of a user specified number of clusters. Results show that PSO clustering techniques have
