Title Online-Monitoring of Security-Related Events
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration
Year 2008

This paper presents a fully operational real-time event extraction system which is capable of accurately and efficiently ex- tracting violent and natural disaster events from vast amount of online news articles per day in different languages. Due to the requirement that the system must be mul- tilingual and easily extendable, it is based on a shallow linguistic analysis. The event extraction results can be viewed on a pub- licly accessible website.
