New Discovery Tools and Metasearch Derivatives -- What's Coming?

Monday, October 25
The Chesapeake AB room.

Meeting includes continental breakfast, break food, and lunch.

This Developers' Forum will focus on interesting and innovative projects related to discovery (aka "search") going on at a number of institutions, ranging from data mining to faceted browsing to semantic web applications, in a variety of relevant domains. Examples of these efforts include D2K, a data mining suite emerging from NCSA; Grokker, a visual and dynamic categorization tool under investigation at Stanford; Sentient Discover, a tool facilitating metasearch integration with learning management systems, developed initially in partnership with the LSE; SIMILE, a RDF and Semantic Web-based project at MIT, and more. Co-chaired by Peter Brantley (CDL) and MacKenzie Smith (MIT).
