ERSS 2005: Coreference-Based Summarization Reloaded
We present ERSS\,2005, our entry to this year's DUC competition.
With only slight modifications from last year's version to
accommodate the more complex context information present in
DUC\,2005, we achieved a similar performance to last year's entry,
ranking roughly in the upper third when examining the ROUGE-1 and
Basic Element score.
We also participated in the additional manual evaluation based on
the new Pyramid method and performed further evaluations based on
the Basic Elements method and the automatic generation of Pyramids.
Interestingly, the ranking of our system differs greatly between the
different measures; we attempt to analyse this effect based on
correlations between the different results using the Spearman
