Title: Automatic Generation of Reference Summaries

We have constructed an integrated web-based system, KTH-Extract corpus
tool, for collecting extract-based corpora and for evaluating summaries and summarization systems. During evaluation and examination of
the collected and generated data we found that in a situation of low
agreement among the informants the corpus gives unduly favors to
summarization systems that use sentence position as a central weighting
feature. The problem is discussed and a possible solution is outlined.
