MTMRL 2011 : Machine Translation and Morphologically-rich Languages
Call For Papers
Machine Translation and Morphologically-rich Languages
Research Workshop of the Israel Science Foundation
University of Haifa, Israel, 23-27 January, 2011
Machine translation remains the holy grail of computational
linguistics. While this field of research has had tremendous progress
in the last decade, especially with the introduction of statistical
methods, translation between morphologically-rich languages remains a
highly challenging task. This Workshop addresses machine translation
(and related multilingual applications) in the context of
morphologically-rich languages. Relevant topics include, but are not
limited to, translation to and from such languages; transliteration
and translation of named entities; morphological pre-processing and
post-processing; language modeling of morphologically-rich languages;
and multilingual language resources.
The format of the Workshop is deliberately informal: it will include
oral presentations, both invited and contributed, but will leave ample
time for informal discussions, demonstrations and brainstorming. The
Workshop provides an opportunity to present the current state-of-the-
art, as well as future needs and directions. Complete works as well as
work in progress are equally welcome for presentation.
To encourage interaction and collaboration, an extensive social
program is planned, including a welcome reception, a banquet and a one-
day sightseeing tour.
