39th Translating and the Computer Conference (TC39), 16-17 November 2017, London
CALL FOR PROPOSALS - DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 6 JULY 2017
The International Association for Advancement in Language Technology (AsLing) is delighted to announce the forthcoming 39th edition of the annual Translating and the Computer Conference (TC39) on 16 and 17 November 2017 in London.
The TC conference series has emerged as a leading forum for users, developers and vendors of Translation Technology tools. It is a distinctive event where translators, interpreters, researchers and business people, from translation companies, international organisations, universities and research labs, as well as freelance professionals, come together to exchange ideas and learn about the latest developments in translation and interpretation technologies.
TC conferences feature presentations and posters, panel discussions and workshops. In addition, the conference welcomes two distinguished experts as keynote speakers. In 2017 our keynotes will be given by Roberto Navigli (Universitą degli Studi di Roma "La Sapienza") and Alex Waibel (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, and Karlsruher Institut für Technologie).
This call invites submissions of extended abstracts for papers, posters and workshop proposals to be given at the TC39 conference.
CAT tools (e.g. Translation Memory systems), Terminology Management tools, Machine Translation (e.g. statistical MT, neural MT, rule-based MT). We particularly welcome contributions addressing these technologies in relation to the following themes: appropriate use, quality assessment and quality control, post-editing, customisation, interoperability and integration of different systems and tools, crowd-sourcing, Natural Language Processing for translation and interpreting, as well as translation and interpreting workflow and management. Other important topics include training (including university translation programmes and the effect of rapid change in the translation industry), tools and resources for interpreters and translators, enhancing collaboration between translators and translation companies, and mobile technologies to support translators' and interpreters' work.
The emphasis of TC39 will be on the new and emerging language technologies, tools and resources which can support the work of interpreters.
Proposals for original unpublished papers and posters on all aspects of translation and interpretation technologies are invited, as well as workshop proposals. Papers and posters may report on research, commercial translation and interpretation products or user experience. Proposals should be submitted via the START conference submission system at https://www.softconf.com/i/tc2017 or, in exceptional circumstances and subject to prior confirmation by the conference organisers, may be sent by email to <submissions at asling.org><mailto:submissions at asling.org>.
