We investigate independent and relevant event-based extractive mutli-document summarization approaches. In this paper, events are defined as event terms and as- sociated event elements. With independ- ent approach, we identify important con- tents by frequency of events. With rele- vant approach, we identify important contents by PageRank algorithm on the event map constructed from documents. Experimental results are encouraging.
