Call for Data Contributors - MultiLing 2013
(Please feel free to forward this call. Apologies for cross-postings.)
MultiLing 2013 is a workshop, held within ACL 2013, which covers three subdomains of
Natural Language Processing, focused on the multilingual aspect of summarization.
The MultiLing 2013 workshop builds upon the Text Analysis Conference (TAC)
MultiLing Pilot task of 2011, where systems were asked to generate fluent, representative
summaries (around 250 words) for each of 10 predefined topics per language.

Automatic text summarization (TS) has been a matter of active research for over a decade now. Doing TS really well would require insights from statistics, machine learning, linguistics and cognitive science, to name a few. Despite a great deal of research effort, state-of-the-art TS systems achieve summary quality much lower than even untrained human summarizers. There is room for improvement and much interesting work to do.
