Explorations is the official newsletter of ACM's Special Interest
Group (SIG) on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining.

Volume 2, Issue 1 will focus on the topic of Internet Data Mining.
The Internet and the World Wide Web provide an excellent source of
challenging data mining problems and large amounts of data.  As such,
there has been much recent work in this field from academia and

Some words about the SIGKDD newsletter:
--------------------------------------
SIGKDD Explorations is a bi-annual newsletter dedicated to serve the
SIGKDD membership and community. Our goal is to make SIGKDD
Explorations a very informative, rapid publication, and interesting
forum for communicating with SIGKDD community.

Submissions will be reviewed by the guest editor and/or associate
editors as appropriate. The distribution will be very wide (on the web,
to all members but probably not restricted access the first year, and
to ACM's world-wide network of libraries. Members get e-mail notifications
of new issues and get hardcopies if they desire).
