Presentation and project or term paper


The representation and processing of information about events, their participants and their causal and temporal properties and relations is an important ingredient of systems of information extraction, text summarization, time line determination etc. with applications in diverse domains such as personalized news systems, event monitoring and risk analysis, financial analysis, and medical and biological analysis.
