Single-document summarization aims to reduce the size of a text document while preserving the most important information. Much work has been done on open-domain summarization. This paper presents an automatic way to mine domain-specific patterns from text documents. With a small amount of effort required for manual selection, these patterns can be used for domain-specific scenario-based document summarization and information extraction. Our evaluation shows that scenario-based document summarization can both filter irrelevant documents and create summaries for relevant documents within the specified domain.
