Automatic Event Detection is a somewhat recent area of information retrieval research.The event detection is about spotting same news, articles that talking about similar incident and then arranges them under the same group or event.We used event clustering technique to perform Automatic Event Detection.In our experiments on Reuters corpus, we find that the system works out significantly and capable to determine same keywords and cluster the news according to their events.We also experiment our system with several different news providers due to the vagueness of the concept event.
