McKeown, Kathleen; Hatzivassiloglou, Vasileios; Barzilay, Regina; Schiffman, Barry; Evans, David; Teufel, Simone

In this paper we discuss Columbia's summarization system for DUC, covering the different component summarizers that handle different document types, the router that decides which summarizer to use, and a preliminary analysis of evaluation results relative to other systems and of factors such as the document types and the model summaries that affect the evaluation.
