Multilingual Multi-document Summarization Task in MultiLing 2015

George Giannakopoulos
In this paper we present an overview of MultiLing 2015, a special session at SIGdial 2015. MultiLing is a community-driven initiative that pushes the state-of-the-art in Automatic Summarization by providing data sets and fostering further research and development of summarization systems. There were in total 23 participants this year submitting their system outputs to one or more of the four tasks of MultiLing: MSS, MMS, OnForumS and CCCS. We provide a brief overview of each task and its participation and evaluation.
