Second Call for Participation Multi-source, Multilingual Information Extraction and Summarization http://www-lipn.univ-paris13.fr/~poibeau/mmies.html Workshop to be held in conjunction with *** RANLP 2007 *** http://lml.bas.bg/ranlp2007/ Borovets - Bulgaria *** 26th of September 2007 *** OVERVIEW 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 INVITED SPEAKER Invited speaker: Bernardo Magnini (ITC-IRST).
