Federated Content Search Workshop

Federated Content Search workshop

The first day will give participants an overview of the construction of a distributed network of language resource search engines ("federated content search"). As a preparatory step an inventory of the current ideas about content search was made. Participants were invited to submit short descriptions with examples of what they consider to be:

  1. a minimal use case: a simple scenario that is still useful to the end users
  2. a more elaborate use case: something with higher requirements, e.g. sophisticated queries that require a closer semantic integration of the sources.

The documents are be published and distributed among the participants, but do not have an official status. They are linked to the presentations as listed on the agenda below. An up to date overview of submitted use cases can be found here.

Report/impression of the workshop: see Jan Odijk's blog.
