[[Call for Short Papers]]

HyTra-4, in conjunction with ACL-2015, Beijing: 31 July 2015

We solicit contributions of Short Papers, of up to four (4) pages of content plus up to two (2) pages for references.

The Workshop HyTra-4 (Hybrid Approaches to Translation, 4th Edition) aims at providing a communication platform and informing research agenda around theoretical and practical issues of Hybrid MT, and specifically – the problems, methodologies, resources and theoretical ideas which originate outside the mainstream MT paradigm, but have potential to enhance the quality of state-of-the-art MT systems. by bringing together diverse range of technologies, methods and tools into MT domain.

The topics include but are not limited to:

• ways and techniques of hybridization • architectures for the rapid development of hybrid MT systems • applications of hybrid systems • hybrid systems dealing with under-resourced languages • hybrid systems dealing with morphologically rich languages • using linguistic information (morphology, syntax, semantics) to enhance statistical MT (e.g. with hierarchical or factored models) • bootstrapping rule-based systems from corpora • hybrid methods in spoken language translation • extraction of dictionaries from parallel and comparable corpora • induction of morphological, grammatical, and translation rules from corpora • machine learning techniques for hybrid MT • describing structural mappings between languages (e.g. tree-structures using synchronous/transduction grammars) • heuristics for limiting the search space in hybrid MT • alternative methods for the fair evaluation of the output of different types of MT systems (e.g. relying on linguistic criteria) • system combination approaches such as multi-engine MT (parallel) or automatic post- editing (sequential) • open source tools and free language resources for hybrid MT, or developed on the basis of hybrid approaches • use of Hybrid MT techniques for other computational linguistics tasks, such as translation lexicography, contrastive morphology, parallel grammar induction

Short paper submission must describe original and unpublished work without exceeding four pages of content plus two pages of references. Characteristics of short papers include: a small, focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an opinion piece; an interesting application nugget. Submissions will be judged according to the criteria of the main conference (ACL 2015).
