Call for participation

For several years, the scientific community has demonstrated an increasing
and recurrent great interest for automatic methods concerning extract
construction, summaries and specialised information filtering. The recently
organised conferences in this field have focussed on the diversity of
approaches (statistics, neuronal nets, symbolic, linguistics, cognitive,
...) but they
haven't always led to either comparison between obtained results or
highlighting the aimed objectives not always emphasized either the
comparison between obtained results, or highlighting the aimed finalities
(document selection, technological awakening, writing assistance,
information synthesis, elaboration of summary model, . ..).

RIFRA'98 will focus in particular on the following topics:

*	Information extraction.
*	Information filtering (Web, Corpus, CD-ROM, ...).
*	Automatic summarization.
*	Performance evaluation methodology of automatic summarization systems.

This workshop aims also at establishing future collaboration between
researchers, users, and industrialists in the field of automatic
summarization.

To reach these objectives, the total number of participants will be limited
to 25 up to 40. A
particular interest will be granted to discussions that will follow
communications, a panel will be organised for each theme.

Official Languages :
Oral communications will be in French and English. There won't be
simultaneous translation.
