CALL FOR PAPERS
Growing interest in automated Question Answering is leading to the
of systems that go beyond 'factoids' to produce answers, often drawn
sources that contain multiple parts. Identifying relevant information
it into a coherent text has however been studied as part of the topic of
Text Summarization. What is the relationship between these two areas?
conditions are summaries not good answers, and why not? What types of
answers exist? How can one evaluate such answers? How are these issues
when we cross language boundaries?
We welcome submissions that address the following themes:
... Single document summarization
... Multiple document summarization
... Multilingual text summarization
... Cross-language question answering
... Summary type classification
... Answer type classification
... Multi-part answer type recognition (When do questions require
complex multi-part answers?)
... Multi-part answer extraction
... Complex summary or answer building block identification
... Structured summary creation
... Coherent and effective answer generation
... How to evaluate summaries?
... How to evaluate factoid answers?
... How to evaluate non-factoid answers?
... Corpora creation for complex summarization and QA
... Interfaces and support tools for complex summarization and QA
