Last year, we presented a system, ERSS, which constructed 10 word summaries in form of a list of noun phrases. It was based on a knowledge-poor extraction of noun phrase coreference chains implemented on a fuzzy set theoretic base. This year we present the performance of an improved version, ERSS 2004 and an extension of the same basic system: Multi-ERSS constructs 100-word extract summaries for clusters of texts. With very few modifications we ran ERSS 2004 on Tasks 1 and 3 and Multi-ERSS on Tasks 2, 4, and 5, scoring generally above average in all but the linguistic quality aspects.
