SALOMON : FINAL REPORT 28/04/00 ____________________________________________________________________________________ ICRI - K.U. Leuven 1 1. Introduction This report covers the research conducted for the SALOMON project from October 1993 till October 1996. The SALOMON project is a contribution to the automatic processing of legal textual information . This introductory chapter further reveals the purpose and scope of the project, describes the general approach, and deals with organisational issues. The body of this report treats two basic topics: the linguistic aspects of the SALOMON project and the automatic generation of a case profile. The two major parts each conclude with an overall appreciation of the work performed and with some recommendations for future research. Readers interested in further details are referred to the relevant technical reports and publications listed at the end of the report.
