Not ICML

Tags: General jl@ 4:00 am

Alex Smola showed me this ICML 2006 webpage. This is NOT the ICML we know, but rather some people at “Enformatika”. Investigation shows that they registered with an anonymous yahoo email account from dotregistrar.com the “Home of the $6.79 wholesale domain!” and their nameservers are by Turkticaret, a Turkish internet company.

It appears the website has since been altered to “ICNL” (the above link uses the google cache).

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so the organizers of the real ICML 2006 must feel quite flattered.

    The links above appear to be dead. What was on the other end?

    On the other end was a conference called “ICML” (later changed to “ICNL”) organized by no one I recognize. It does look like they (whoever they are) have dropped it, which is good.
