Here is a partial example of a site's submission for two tasks.
The entire set of summaries generated by a given participating group, i.e., that group's task-level submissions combined into one DUC 2004 submission, should be submitted as simple ASCII text in the body of one email to Lori.Buckland@nist.gov using the formats defined above.
Please validate your DUC 2004 submission before emailing it to NIST. Use the XML validator of your choice. For example, "javac sax.SAXCount -v YOURFILE" from the Xerxes 1.x XML package or an XML validator such as the one provided via the Web by the Brown University Scholarly Technology Group.
DUC 2004 participants have been busy! We received a total of 145 runs, which yield the following numbers of summaries by task:
Task 1 19,487 Task 2 1,699 Task 3 5,280 Task 4 671 Task 5 1100
