Oddly enough, federated search vendor participation is very slim. The only two vendors with booths are:
- Deep Web Technologies: Booth #1123
- Serials Solutions: Booth #1707
Aside from these two, there are a couple of exhibitors who partner with federated search vendors, but no participation beyond that.
I couldn’t find any presentations that, as far as I could tell, would be of particular interest to the federated search community, with one notable exception:
Monday, June 16
Building Global Bridges Across Science Databases
Speaking: Walter Warnick, PhD, U.S. Department of Energy;
Bonnie Carroll, Information International Associates, Inc.
Presented by: Government Information Division;
Environment & Resource Management Division
Any thoughts on why the federated search presence is so low?
