A team from INESC TEC’s Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support (LIAAD), composed of the coordinator, Alípio Jorge, and the researchers Arian Pasquali, Vítor Mangaravite and Ricardo Campos, alongside Adam Jatowt, won the Best Demo Presentation award at ECIR 2019 (41st European Conference on Information Retrieval) with the project “Conta-me Histórias” (in English "Tell me Sotries").

This presentation entitled “Interactive System for Automatically Generating Temporal Narratives” intended to show the users a tool that allows them to automatically create a temporal summarisation of news in archive. Last year, this team had already won the Best Short Paper award at the same conference with the algorithm developed in the YAKE! Project, a keyword extractor.
At the same event, Ricardo Campos also received the recognition as one of the best reviewers of the conference.
ECIR 2019 took place on Germany between 14 and 18 April, aiming at gathering in a European forum new research results in the area of information retrieval, thus being an opportunity for young researchers to present original and innovative works.
