The SIGMA FDB project attempts to offer an approach to schema integration and integrity constraint maintenance in the field of federated database systems. In this extended abstract, we present our view on federated database systems and sketch the main results of our group's work. Especially, we briefly discuss different research aspects and implementation activities.
