We discuss the major techniques used in the process and show some preliminary results. 1 Introduction It has been recently recognized in the KDD (Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining) community that mining from semi-structured or unstructured text (text mining for short) is an increasingly important research topic, and there are enormous potential applicatio
