Abstract: Event extraction is an important branch of information extraction.It is widely used in intelligence collection,knowledge extraction,document summarization,question answering,etc.This paper presented a survey on meta-event extraction which attracts most attention in event extraction.It firstly interpreted the basic concepts of meta-event and meta-event extraction and briefly introduced the main implementation methods of meta-event extraction.Then it focused on the tasks of meta-event extraction,highlighted the task of meta-event identification,and briefly introduced other tasks.Finally,it summarized the problems of current meta-event extraction and predicted the trend of meta-event extraction

Key words: Meta-event extraction, Information extraction, Meta-event identification, Trigger
