In order to produce, a good summary, one has to identify the most relevant portions of a given text. We describe in this t)at)er a method for automatically training tel)it, signatures--sets of related words, with associated weights, organized around head topics and illustrate with signatm'es we cre-;tt.ed with 6,194 TREC collection texts over 4 selected tot)ics. We descril)e the l)ossible integration of' tolli(: signatures with ontoh)gies and its evaluaton on an automate(l text summarization system.
