Query:   Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

I am a doctoral student at Peking University, and now mainly doing
research on Information Extraction. I'd like to know exactly how many Ph.D.
theses or Master theses dealing with IE have been finished till now. If you
know some theses about this topic or you are just the author of such one
thesis, would you please tell me the detailed information about the theses,
such as author's name, thesis title, university name, published year, in
what language, and whether it is available on WWW? If so, I would appreciate
it very much. Thanks in advance.

In addition, if possible, please give your opinion about what are the
future directions in IE research.

I will post a summary about these issues in the near future.

Thanks for your attention and best regards to all of you,


Li Baoli
