ABSTRACT
The article focuses on discussions related to search engines presented in conferences in the U.S. in 2005. The theme of the Spring 2005 Meeting of the Association of Information and Dissemination Centers (ASIDIC) from March 21-23, 2005 in New Orleans, Louisiana was Search Wars and the Next Wave of Internet Innovation. Infonortics Ltd. held its 10th Annual Search Engine Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts from April 11-12, 2005. Although both conferences focused on search engines, the tone of each was quite different. The ASIDIC meeting centered more on the business and market aspects of search engines, while the Infonortics meeting emphasized new technologies and research advances. ASIDIC featured two keynotes--one by Gary Price, editor of the Resource-Shelf Weblog and co-author of The Invisible Web, and the other by David Jastrow, senior analyst at Simba Information. At the ASIDIC meeting, Factiva's John Costanzo showed several examples of how the company has integrated analytical tools into its service. Google's announcements have dramatically affected the information industry and the search business, yet some aggregators report not feeling threatened by it. At ASIDIC, Anne Orens of Ingenta described how the company recently opened its platform to Google's crawlers and how the Web site changed as a result.
