        Crossing Barriers in Text Summarization Research

		Workshop to be help in conjunction with

			  *** RANLP 2005 ***

			  Borovets - Bulgaria


	             *** 24th of September 2005 ***


The ever-increasing availability of  on-line textual databases and the
development of  the Internet have  made of Text Summarization  a major
research  topic.   The   international  research  community  has  made
outstanding contributions to Text Summarization since the seminal 1993
Dagstuhl Seminar on  Text Summarization for Intelligent Communication,
however several  problems still  need to be  addressed and  new issues
have emerged  as a result  of technological advances.   The ``Crossing
Barriers  in Text  Summarization  Research'' workshop  will cover  the
following topics:

* Coreference and Summarization
* Crosslingual Summarization
* Evaluation
* Multidocument Summarization
* Multimedia Summarization
* Question Answering and Summarization
* Speech Summarization
