Thomas Kleinbauer, Stephanie Becker, Tilman Becker

In: Proceedings of 11th European Workshop on Natural Language Generation. European Workshop on Natural Language Generation (ENLG-07) 11th June 17-20 Dagstuhl Germany 2007.


We describe a new application for NLG technology: the generation of indicative, abstractive summaries of multi-party meetings. Based on the freely available AMI corpus of 100 hours of recorded meetings, we are developing a summarizer that uses the rich annotations in the AMI corpus.
