MT Summit 2013 : The Fourteenth Machine Translation Summit
Call For Papers
Machine Translation Summit XIV
2–6 September 2013
CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS
The Fourteenth Machine Translation Summit, organized by the International
Association for Machine Translation and the European Association for Machine
Translation, will be held at the ACROPOLIS conference centre, Nice, France,
2–6 September 2013.
The conference programme for the MT Summit 2013 will include keynote speeches
by renowned experts in Machine Translation, panel discussions and
presentations of submitted and invited papers organized in two programme
tracks - research and commercial/user.
An exhibition of commercial and research systems will be held during the
conference as well as a 'Project Village' featuring the best of recently
funded collaborative work. Before the main conference two full days will be
devoted to tutorials and workshops. There will be a variety of sightseeing
tours in the beautiful surroundings of Nice both before and after the MT
CFP Research Program Track
The present call concerns Research track papers only; separate calls will be
made for the Commercial Track as well as for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals.
The research Program Committee will be co-chaired by Khalil Sima'an
(Universiteit van Amsterdam) and Mikel L. Forcada (Universitat d'Alacant).
All submissions will be reviewed by at least three experts.
MT Summit XIV seeks original, unpublished papers about all aspects of machine
translation (MT). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
MT models of any kind (e.g., data-driven, rule-based, hybrid, linguistic,
MT techniques and computational issues (e.g., adaptation, representations,
algorithms and complexity)
MT evaluation techniques and evaluation results
Empirical studies on translation data
MT and other technologies (e.g., speech translation, multilingual text
categorization, multilingual retrieval, text summarization).
Text and speech corpora for MT, and knowledge extraction for MT
Human factors in MT and user interfaces for MT
Dictionaries and lexica for MT
Standards in text and lexicon and rule encoding for MT
Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools for
Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.)
There will be two categories of research papers:
(R) Regular papers: Submissions are invited for reports of significant
research results in any aspect of machine translation and related areas. Such
reports should include an empirical evaluation component. The Regular paper
submissions will be presented either orally or as a poster.
(P) System demonstrations: Submissions are invited for reports on the design,
implementation, operation and evaluation of operational and prototype systems
with an accompanying demonstration.
Both types of papers should include a 100-150 word abstract, and up to 5
keywords. Further guidelines for authors will be available soon at the
MT Summit XIV will use electronic submission through the EasyChair conference
