*CALL FOR PAPERS: Machine Translation Journal*

*Special Issue on Human Factors in Neural Machine Translation *

*Guest editors: - Sheila Castilho (Dublin City University/ADAPT Centre)- Federico Gaspari (University for Foreigners ?Dante Alighieri? of Reggio Calabria/ADAPT Centre)- Joss Moorkens (Dublin City University/ADAPT Centre)- Maja Popovi? (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)- Antonio Toral (University of Groningen)Since the Machine Translation (MT) community became aware of the potential of Neural Machine Translation (NMT), an increasing number of MT providers and research groups have focused their energies and resources on developing NMT systems. More and more NMT systems continue to go into production, providing consumers of raw MT with output that shows a jump in fluency when compared with statistical MT (SMT; Bentivogli et al. 2017; Toral and Sánchez-Cartagena 2017). However, it is not yet clear how translators can best work with NMT output, whether there are advantages to using NMT as a productivity tool, or what specific challenges are involved in post-editing NMT output with respect to SMT. Studies (such as Castilho et al. 2017) showed minor improvements in productivity and technical effort, relative to the improved scores using automatic metrics and human fluency evaluation.This special issue seeks to publish studies that investigate how users work with NMT output, in order to understand the repercussions of the large-scale move to NMT on translators and post-editors.Areas of special interest include, but are not limited to, the following: * Post-editing techniques and approaches specific to NMT output * Usability studies * Users and interactive NMT (see Peris and Casacuberta 2018) * Controlled languages designed to optimise the result of NMT * Error taxonomies to evaluate and improve NMT systems (Klubi?ka et al., 2017) * Studies of cognitive effort (possibly using eye-tracking or pause analysis) * Studies of technical and temporal effort in MT interaction * Hybrid forms of NMT (combined with rule-based or statistical approaches) * Integrating user feedback in NMT systems (see Turchi et al. 2017) * Controlling terminology in NMT systemsIMPORTANT DATES:June 15, 2018: Paper submission dueJuly 30, 2018: Notification of acceptanceOctober 10, 2018: Camera ready paper dueSUBMISSION GUIDELINES: - Authors should follow the "Instructions for Authors" available on the journal website:- Go to https://link.springer.com/journal/10590 <https://link.springer.com/journal/10590> - Click on ?Instructions for authors? on the right- Expand ?Text? and you will see a Latex template- Length of paper is determined by total of submissions received.

Week, 29th-31st May 2018, Bolzano/Bozen, Italy To: corpora at uib.no, LN at cines.fr, ailc at googlegroups.com

****** Apologies for cross -posting ******

Dear all,

the Institute for Applied Linguistics of Eurac Research in Bolzano, Italy is interested in hosting Marie Sk?odowska-Curie Individual Fellows (IF) and invites potential applicants to a dedicated 3-days Training taking place from the 29th till the 31st of May 2018. Over the course of the training, candidates will work on the project proposal with experienced researchers from Eurac Research, get detailed information from MSC-IF fellows, and will be trained by an MSC evaluator on the does-and-don'ts of the proposal phase.

The deadline for application to participate is 21.03.2018. Please visit the event website <http://www.eurac.edu/msc-week>for details on how to apply.

The Institute for Applied Linguistics is especially inviting applicants interested in the following 7 fields: (1) Learner Corpus Research, (2) CMC, (3) Digital Humanities, (4)Crowdsourcing, (5) Terminology, (6) Specialized Translation,and (7) Multilingual Knowledge Management.

With regards to (1) Learner Corpus Research, the Institute is a center of reference in terms of linguistic research approaches, infrastructure and development questions, as well as networking. Among other things, the Institute has organized the 2017 edition of the LCR conference <http://lcr2017.eurac.edu/>. The Institute hosts various learner corpora for German and Italian, which were collected in different projects (e.g. Kolipsi <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetail3900.aspx>, KoKo <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetails.aspx?pid=7639>, SMS <http://sms-project.eurac.edu/EN/Projekt/Pages/default.aspx>),and is currently interested in applying sophisticated statistical methods to these datasets to perform further linguistic analyses.

Regarding (2) CMC, the Institute has been developing and analyzing a CMC corpus called DiDi <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/autonomies/commul/projects/Pages/projectdetails.aspx?pid=11204>, is developing specialized tools for processing CMC data and has organized the 2017 edition of the CMC-Corpora conference <http://cmc-corpora2017.eurac.edu/>. As regards (3) Digital Humanities, the Institute is looking to strengthen joint efforts with local and regional institutions (e.g. libraries), following on a path started with the OPATCH <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/autonomies/commul/projects/Pages/projectdetails.aspx?pid=11263>project and continued by the DI-ÖSS <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetail4262.aspx> project. The Institute is also an active member of the CLARIN-IT <http://www.clarin-it.it>initiative and is working towards becoming a CLARIN B Centre. Regarding (4) Crowdsourcing, the Institute is actively working on the combination of Crowdsourcing and Language Learning for the purpose of mass producing language-related datasets and language learning material. With this objective in mind, the Institute is currently leading a rather large COST Action called enetCollect <http://enetcollect.eurac.edu/>(European Network for Combining Language Learning with Crowdsourcing Techniques) that will last till April 2021.

With regards to (5) Terminology, (6) Specialized Translation and (7) Knowledge Management, the Institute is striving to become a reference center for the local private and public organizations. Currently, it advises the local administration on legal terminology (ConsTerm <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetail3911.aspx>) and publishes the results of its terminology work in the bistro database <http://bistro.eurac.edu/>. Furthermore, in March 2017 began an explanatory study on translation practices and procedures of the provincial administration, whose aspects are analyzed in details over the following three years in the frame of a PhD study (TradAM <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetail4383.aspx>). The Institute also worked on the revision and translation of e-learning modules on safety at work (E-Learning Safety at Work <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetail3914.aspx>). In the frame of this project, a new terminology project will start in June 2018. Finally the Institute consult local SMEs in managing aspects related to multilingualism (PensPlan <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/projects/Pages/projectdetail4157.aspx>).

Project ideas addressing the aforementioned subjects are very welcome, as well as other relevant subjects. More information about the Institute, its member and its projects is available on its website <http://www.eurac.edu/en/research/autonomies/commul/>.

Please kindly distribute this information to anybody that could be interested. If you have any questions, feel free to directly get in touch with us via email <mailto:%20communication.multilingualism at eurac.edu>. Best regards,

Lionel Nicolas

Message: 4 Date: Wed, 21 Feb 2018 15:54:32 -0800 From: Mohit Iyyer <miyyer at cs.umass.edu> Subject: [Corpora-List] CFP: EMNLP 2018 To: CORPORA at uib.no

EMNLP 2018 First Call for Papers http://emnlp2018.org

SIGDAT, the Association for Computational Linguistics? Special Interest Group on linguistic data and corpus-based approaches to NLP, invites you to submit your papers to EMNLP 2018 (November 2 ? November 4, 2018) in Brussels, Belgium.

We invite the submission of long and short papers related to empirical methods in natural language processing. Accepted papers will be presented as oral talks or posters. As in recent years, the conference will also include presentations of selected papers accepted by the Transactions of the ACL.

TOPICS ?????? We solicit papers on all areas of interest to the SIGDAT community and aligned fields, including but not limited to:

? Language Models, Segmentation ? Morphological Analysis, POS Tagging and Sequence Labeling ? Syntactic and Semantic Parsing ? Lexical and Compositional Semantics ? Discourse and Coreference ? Dialogue and Interactive Systems ? Narrative Understanding and Commonsense Reasoning ? Spoken Language Processing ? Text Mining ? Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining ? Information Retrieval, Question Answering ? Information Extraction ? Summarization ? Natural Language Generation ? Machine Translation ? Multilinguality and Cross-linguality ? Linguistic Theories and Resources ? Computational Psycholinguistics ? Multimodal and Grounded Language Processing ? Machine Learning for NLP ? Web, Social Media and Computational Social Science ? Ethics and Fairness in NLP ? Other NLP Applications

Important Dates ???????????????

Long and short paper submission deadline May 22, 2018 Author response period starts July 6, 2018 Author rebuttals due July 12, 2018 Acceptance notification August 6, 2018 Camera-ready submission deadline August 27, 2018

All deadlines are calculated at 11:59pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time (UTC -7h). Workshops and tutorials October 31 ? November 1, 2018 Main conference November 2 ? November 4, 2018

SUBMISSION INFORMATION ?????????????????????? We will be accepting submissions online via Softconf. The submission deadline for both long and short papers is May 22, 2018.

Long papers ??????????? EMNLP 2018 long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation and analysis should be included. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Each long paper submission consists of a paper of up to eight (8) pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references; final versions of long papers will be given one additional page (up to nine pages with unlimited pages for references) so that reviewers? comments can be taken into account.

Short papers ???????????? EMNLP 2018 also solicits short papers. Short paper submissions must describe original and unpublished work. While a short paper is not a shortened long paper, the characteristics of short papers include: a small, focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an opinion piece; an interesting application nugget. Each short paper submission consists of up to four (4) pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references; final versions of short papers will be given one additional page (up to five pages in the proceedings and unlimited pages for references) so that reviewers? comments can be taken into account. Each short paper submission will be reviewed by at least three program committee members.

IMPORTANT: New submission guidelines ???????????????????????????????????? EMNLP 2018 adopts ACL?s new policies for submission, review, and citation. Submissions that violate any of these policies will be rejected without review. Most importantly, the policies refer to the anonymity period, which starts on April 22nd, 2018 for EMNLP 2018.

? You may not make a non-anonymized version of your paper available online to the general community (for example, via a preprint server) during the anonymity period. ? You may not update the non-anonymized version during the anonymity period, and we ask you not to advertise it on social media or take other actions that would further compromise double-blind reviewing during the anonymity period.

The details are described in the ACL 2018 Author Guidelines, which we follow. For the background of the new policies, refer to the online version.

Optional Supplementary Materials: Appendices, Software and Data ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Each EMNLP 2018 submission can be accompanied by a single PDF appendix, one .tgz or .zip archive containing software, and one .tgz or .zip archive containing data. EMNLP 2018 encourages the submission of these supplementary materials to improve the reproducibility of results, and to enable authors to provide additional information that does not fit in the paper. For example, preprocessing decisions, model parameters, feature templates, lengthy proofs or derivations, pseudocode, sample system inputs/outputs, and other details that are necessary for the exact replication of the work described in the paper can be put into the appendix. However, the paper submissions need to remain fully self-contained, as these supplementary materials are completely optional, and reviewers are not even asked to review or download them. If the pseudo-code or derivations or model specifications are an important part of the contribution, or if they are important for the reviewers to assess the technical correctness of the work, they should be a part of the main paper, and not appear in the appendix. Supplementary materials need to be fully anonymized to preserve the double-blind reviewing policy.

Formatting Requirements ??????????????????????? Both long and short papers must follow the EMNLP 2018 two-column format, using the LaTeX style files or Word template to be provided on the conference website. Please do not modify these style files, or use templates designed for other conferences. Submissions that do not conform to the required styles, including paper size, margin width, and font size restrictions, will be rejected without review.

Double-Blind Review Instructions ???????????????????????????????? As the reviewing will be blind, submissions and supplementary materials must not include the authors' names and affiliations. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's identity, e.g., ?We previously showed (Smith, 1991) ...?, should be avoided. Instead, use citations such as ?Smith (1991) previously showed ...?. Acknowledgments of funding or assistance must also be omitted. Submissions should not contain pointers to supplemental information on the web; any such material should be submitted as supplementary materials (see above). Submissions that do not conform to these requirements will be rejected without review. Separate author identification information is required as part of the online submission process.

Multiple Submission Policy ?????????????????????????? Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must indicate this at submission time, and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted by EMNLP 2018. We will not accept for publication or presentation papers that overlap significantly in content or results with papers that will be (or have been) published elsewhere. Authors submitting more than one paper to EMNLP 2018 must ensure that the submissions do not overlap significantly (>25%) with each other in content or results.

Presentation Requirement ???????????????????????? All accepted papers must be presented at the conference in order to appear in the proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for EMNLP 2018. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as a poster (at the discretion of the program chairs based on the nature rather than the quality of the work). There will be no distinction in the proceedings between papers presented orally or as posters.

Further information ??????????????????? The conference will be preceded by two days of workshops and tutorials (October 31 ? November 1). The conference web site http://emnlp2018.org will continue to be updated with information on workshops, tutorials, the conference venue, traveling, etc.
