CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

======================================================== WMT 2016 Shared Task on Multimodal Machine Translation ======================================================== At WMT 2016 (collocated with ACL 2016)

This is a new multimodal challenge for researchers working in the interface between Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. The challenge is split in two variants:

-

a *translation task: *participants will be asked to take a source

language description and machine translate it into German, where this

process can be supported by information from the image (multimodal

translation), and

-

a *description generation task:* participants will be asked to take an

image and generate a description for it in German, where this process can

be supported by the source language description (crosslingual image

description generation).

A new dataset based on the Flickr30K was created and is available for the task. It contains 31,783 parallel English-German image description translations, and 158,915 comparable English-German image descriptions, all paired with an image.

*Important dates*Release of training data - done Release of test data - 10 April 2016 Translation submission - 30 April 2016 Paper submission - May 8, 2016
