Deep Machine Translation Workshop 2016

Lisbon, October 20-21, 2016


Call for papers

This is the second workshop on “Deep Machine Translation“, the first being held in Prague in 2015 (https://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/events/deep-machine-translation-workshop). Its aim is to bring together researchers and students working on machine translation approaches and technology using “deep understanding” (not necessarily using Deep Neural Networks, as the name might suggest, but certainly not excluding them either). Adding “more linguistics” has long been considered as a possible way to boost quality of current, mainly (PB)SMT-based systems. However, there are many ways to do so, and it was felt a forum is needed where experience can be shared among people working on such systems.

Papers on original and unpublished research are welcome on any of the topics listed above in general, and specifically on any of the following:

* General approaches to the use of linguistic knowledge for Machine Translation

* Contrast and comparison of Deep linguistic methods vs. Deep neural

networks for MT

* Semantics for Machine Translation

* Combination of statistical and “manual” approaches to Machine

Translation, hybrid systems

* Innovative use of manually built lexical resources in Machine

Translation (monolingual, bilingual)

* Deep linguistic representation of meaning / semantics, including

semantic graphs, logical representation, temporal and spatial

representation and grounding

* Deep linguistic analysis and generation

* Joint linguistic and distributional modeling (analysis, generation, transfer)

* Analysis, generation and transfer using graph-based meaning representation

* Incorporating coreference, named entity recognition, words sense

disambiguation, or any other linguistically motivated features into

the MT chain

* Multilingual question-answering and CLIR approaches, including

specific methods for query translation and query matching in a

multilingual setting

* Evaluation methods for standard text translation, query translation, and CLIR Schedule

Call for papers released: May 30, 2016 Submission deadline: September 11, 2016 Workshop dates: October 20-21, 2016
