KDD Cup 2000 will be the Fourth International Knowledge Discovery
and Data Mining Tools Competition, held in conjunction with KDD-2000.

This year's domain contains clickstream and purchase data from
Gazelle.com, a legwear and legcare web retailer.  You are required
to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in order to receive a
password to access the data.  The top three winners will be expected
to give a short talk at KDD-2000.

We will have two question periods during the competition (the first
runs from 5/20 - 5/30).  During these question periods, you may ask
technical questions or business questions, similar to real-life
interaction with a real client.

The data will be available as of 5/20.  It is crucial that you sign
the NDA as soon as possible in order to utilize the first question
