CEA LIST (Gregory Grefenstette) The CEA LIST will work on extracting meta data from raw text. The metadata can be used to collect additional metadata with external data (for example, images, graphs, maps, URLS). We will use our competencies in text analysis and web searching to extract and provide metadata to be integrated into an XML database
