Summary: In the HERMES project two applications will be developed which facilitate the retrieval of multilingual textual information. These applications will offer significant improvements over current systems due to the incorporation of techniques taken from the field of linguistic engineering. The improvements will be seen interms of the relevance of the obtained results and also in the analysis and presentation of the selected information. The first application will be a system that deals with requests for information contained in a multilingual (Basque, Catalan, English and Spanish) digital news archive. The second application will be a Web-based multilingual search system of online news (e.g., Web-based newspapers).
HERMES is a project developed by our group from Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), toghether with members of the University of Barcelona (UB) Computational Linguistics research group, the NLP group from Basque Country University (EHU), and the NLP research group in the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED).
