Abstract

The Web provides easy access from everywhere to every kind of information. It is becoming a substitute source for news, instead of traditional media such as newspapers, radio and television. However, with the ease of access and the tremendous amounts of information available online, finding relevant information is not an easy task. This paper reports on an under development joint research project which aims at the development of an online Journalism Agency that makes use of Natural Language techniques in order to provide trainee and professional journalists with topical summaries of information relevant to their interest on different channels (Web, PDAs, etc.). Our system obtained good results of the linguistic quality of the summaries in international summarization campaigns. With such a background we are quite optimistic for the future development of the project.
