ve Summarization of Multimodal Documents Charles F. Greenbacker Dept. of Computer & Information Sciences University of Delaware Newark, Delaware, USA charlieg@cis.udel.edu Abstract We propose a framework for generating an ab- stractive summary from a semantic model of a multimodal document. We discuss the type of model required, the means by which it can be constructed, how the content of the model is rated and selected, and the method of realizing novel sentences for the summary. To this end, we introduce a metric called information den- sity used for gauging the importance of con- tent obtained from text and graphical sources.
