If you have a question about this talk, please contact Timothy G. Griffin.

We give an overview of the Lixto project, which is both a research project in database theory and a commercial enterprise that develops Web data extraction (wrapping) and Web service definition software. After reviewing the project’s main motivations and ideas, in particular the use of a logic-based framework for wrapping, we give a short demo of some main feaures of the system and discuss a number of industry projects carried out by the Lixto Software corporation (www.lixto.com). Based on the project experience, we define goals and reserach directions for exploring new frontiers of Web data extraction, which will be discussed at the end of the talk.
