Begoña Altuna

Begoña Altuna is a PhD student at the University of the Basque Country. Her research area is the temporal information processing. She will be presenting her research area and her ongoing work.
Temporal information is a core resource for textual organisation as it structures the discourse along a temporal axis. More precisely, temporal expressions refer to a point in time in which an event takes place, starts or ends or express the duration of an event in time. The processing of this information can be useful and relevant in text comprehension and generation in many tasks such as text summarisation, chronology creation, event prediction and event forecasting.
In the presentation the linguistic analysis of temporal constructions, the adaptation of a mark-up language for temporal information, the creation of an annotated corpus and the development of a tool for Basque temporal expression extraction and normalisation will be described.
