Multilingual Summarization by Integrating Linguistic Resources in the MLIS-MUSI Project

In this paper we will illustrate the approach to multilingual automatic abstract production adopted by the EU-sponsored project MLIS-MUSI.

MUSI combines a linguistic-based module for relevant sentence extraction and a concept-based component to generate multilingual summaries
