Meeting Description:

Call for Participation - RANLP/MMIES 2007 Workshop - Multi-source, Multilingual
Information Extraction and Summarization


Workshop to be held in conjunction with

RANLP 2007


Borovets - Bulgaria
26th of September 2007


Information extraction (IE) and text summarization (TS) are key technologies
aiming at extracting relevant information from texts and other
sources and presenting the information to the user in condensed forms.
Recent years have witnessed an explosion of information,
making IE and TS particularly important for the information
society. These technologies, however, face new challenges with the
adoption of the Web 2.0 paradigm (e.g. blogs, wikis) because of their
inherent multi-source nature. These technologies have to deal no longer with
isolated texts or single narratives but with large scale repositories,
or sources -- in one or many languages -- containing a multiplicity
of views, opinions, or commentaries on particular topics, entities or
events. There is thus a need to adapt and/or develop new techniques
to deal with these new phenomena. The ``Multi-source, Multilingual
Information Extraction and Summarization'' workshop will cover the
following topics:

- Mono-lingual and Multi-lingual Cross-document Coreference;

- Multi-source Information Extraction;

- Social Networks' Learning and Visualisation;

- Relation Extraction;

- Cross-lingual Information Extraction and Document Retrieval; and

- Ontology-based Information Extraction
