One Keynote talk "WebKDD in the Business World" by Jim Sterne, Target Marketing  

Jim Sterne produced the world's first "Marketing on the Internet" seminar 
series in 1994. Today, Sterne is an internationally known speaker on 
electronic marketing and customer interaction. A consultant to Fortune 500 
companies and Internet entrepreneurs, Sterne focuses his twenty years in 
sales and marketing on measuring the value of a Web site as a medium for 
creating and strengthening customer relationships. Sterne has written five 
books including, "World Wide Web Marketing, 3rd Edition," "Customer Service 
on the Internet, 2nd Edition," "What Makes People Click: Advertising on the 
Internet," and "E-Mail Marketing". His most recent is "Web Metrics; Proven 
Methods for Measuring Web Site Success."

His talk "WebKDD in the Business World" will identify the wide variety
of measurements that may be taken and call for a consolidated view of
Web site activity to ensure corporate decision makers have the
information they need to make decisions about their Web site
expenditures, decisions about their customers, and  decisions about
how they are representing themselves to their marketplace.
