EMNLP 2017 SECOND CONFERENCE ON MACHINE TRANSLATION (WMT17)

Featuring shared tasks on translation, evaluation, automated post-editing and translation model estimation.

7-8th September, 2017, in conjunction with EMNLP 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark

http://www.statmt.org/wmt17

*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

We invite the submission of scientific papers on topics related to MT. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* word-based, phrase-based, syntax-based SMT * using comparable corpora for SMT * incorporating linguistic information into SMT * decoding * system combination and selection * error analysis * manual and automatic methods for evaluating MT * quality estimation of MT * scaling MT to very large data sets * neural MT

SHARED TASKS

The workshop will feature eight shared tasks:

* Translation tasks

* News

* Biomedical

* Multimodal

* Evaluation tasks

* Metrics

* Quality estimation

* Other tasks

* Automatic post-editing

* Neural MT training

* Bandit Learning

The tasks have been announced separately and more information is available on the workshop website.

PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Submissions will consist of full research papers of 6-10 pages, plus additional pages for references, formatted following the EMNLP 2017 guidelines. In addition, shared task participants will be invited to submit short papers (suggested length 4-6 pages) describing their systems or their evaluation metrics. Both submission and review processes will be handled electronically.

We encourage individuals who are submitting research papers to evaluate their approaches using the training resources provided by this workshop and past workshops, so that their experiments can be repeated by others using these publicly available corpora.
