- 24th of September 2005 -


The ever-increasing availability of on-line textual databases and the
development of the Internet have made of Text Summarization a major research
topic. The international research community has made outstanding
contributions to Text Summarization since the seminal 1993 Dagstuhl Seminar on
Text Summarization for Intelligent Communication, however several problems
still need to be addressed and new issues have emerged as a result of
technological advances. The "Crossing Barriers in Text Summarization
Research'' workshop will cover the following topics:

- Coreference and Summarization
- Crosslingual Summarization
- Evaluation
- Multidocument Summarization
- Multimedia Summarization
- Question Answering and Summarization
-Speech Summarization
