Abstract

Event-based search systems have become of increasing interest. This paper provides an overview of recent advances in event-based text mining, with an emphasis on biomedical text. We focus particularly on the enrichment of events with information relating to their interpretation according to surrounding textual and discourse contexts. We describe our annotation scheme used to capture this information at the event level, report on the corpora that have so far been enriched according to this scheme and provide details of our experiments to recognise this information automatically.
