MDM/KDD99 Workshop Update

I received numerous e-mail messages from people who couldn't access the MDM/KDD99 Web page. Due to networking problems for the MDM/KDD99 workshop website, the deadline for submissions for the workshop on Multimedia Data Mining has been extended to June 28, 1999.

Although the original URL should be accessible by now, the system is still under recovery. Fay Sudweeks, Senior Lecturer at the School of Information Technology, Murdoch University kindly offered to mirror the workshop web page. The alternative URL for accessing the MDM/KDD99 web site is

I appologise for the inconvenience. I would appreciate if you can forward this email to any colleagues of yours that intend to participate in the workshop and may not be on this list.

Below is the workshop information with updated deadlines and urls.
