1Aker, A. ; Gaizauskas, R.: Generating descriptive multi-document summaries of geo-located entities using entity type models.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 66(2015) no.4, S.721-738.
Abstract: In this article, we investigate the application of entity type models in extractive multi-document summarization using automatic caption generation for images of geo-located entities (e.g., Westminster Abbey) as an application scenario. Entity type models contain sets of patterns aiming to capture the ways geo-located entities are described in natural language. They are automatically derived from texts about geo-located entities of the same type (e.g., churches, lakes). We integrate entity type models into a multi-document summarizer and use them to address the 2 major tasks in extractive multi-document summarization: sentence scoring and summary composition. We experiment with 3 different representation methods for entity type models: signature words, n-gram language models, and dependency patterns. We evaluate the summarizer with integrated entity type models relative to (a) a summarizer using standard text-related features commonly used in text summarization and (b) the Wikipedia location descriptions. Our results show that entity type models significantly improve the quality of output summaries over that of summaries generated using standard summarization features and Wikipedia summaries. The representation of entity type models using dependency patterns is superior to the representations using signature words and n-gram language models.

2Aker, A. ; Plaza, L. ; Lloret, E. ; Gaizauskas, R.: Do humans have conceptual models about geographic objects? : a user study.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 64(2013) no.4, S.689-700.
Abstract: In this article, we investigate what sorts of information humans request about geographical objects of the same type. For example, Edinburgh Castle and Bodiam Castle are two objects of the same type: "castle." The question is whether specific information is requested for the object type "castle" and how this information differs for objects of other types (e.g., church, museum, or lake). We aim to answer this question using an online survey. In the survey, we showed 184 participants 200 images pertaining to urban and rural objects and asked them to write questions for which they would like to know the answers when seeing those objects. Our analysis of the 6,169 questions collected in the survey shows that humans have shared ideas of what to ask about geographical objects. When the object types resemble each other (e.g., church and temple), the requested information is similar for the objects of these types. Otherwise, the information is specific to an object type. Our results may be very useful in guiding Natural Language Processing tasks involving automatic generation of templates for image descriptions and their assessment, as well as image indexing and organization.

3Hady, M.F. Abdel ; Shaker, A.K.: Cataloging and classification education in Egypt : stressing the fundamentals while approaching toward automated applications.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 41(2005) nos.3/4, S.407-429.
Abstract: This paper concentrates on the current state of cataloging and classification education in Egypt. The authors highlight the changes occurred in the past five years and also envision the expected changes for the near future. All courses related inclusively to cataloging (both descriptive and subject) and classification of library materials have been examined. Research design includes analyzing curricula, distributing written questionnaire, and interviewing library and information science faculty from different departments throughout the country. The paper reveals a number of findings that are of particular relevance to the current and near-future cataloging and classification education in Egypt. Among these findings are the increasing focus on machine-readable cataloging, cooperation in cataloging, improving the practical part of cataloging and classification education, the need for continuing education of instructors, and continuing development of cataloging courses.
