Automatic summarization of written news has been an area of active research for over a decade now. A wide range of summarization approaches for news have been developed and tested on large reference datasets provided by the Document Understanding Conferences (DUC) and the current Text Analysis Conference (TAC), and both manual and automatic evaluation measures have been developed and validated for this genre.
