People who want to attend the workshop have to be registered to the main conference ECML/PKDD-2001. Workshop proceedings will be distributed among registered participants at the workshop. The conference will probably provide a joint paper style for the proceedings. In addition, there will be a joint Web-publication of all the workshop proceedings after the conference. Hence, electronic submissions to the workshops are strongly encouraged.
