Fourth Workshop on Discourse in Machine Translation (DiscoMT'19)


In conjunction with EMNLP 2019, Hong Kong, China

3 November 2019

Second call for papers

We invite submissions to the Fourth Workshop on Discourse in Machine Translation, held in conjunction with EMNLP 2019, in Hong Kong. The first three DiscoMT workshops were held in 2013 at ACL in Sofia, in 2015 at EMNLP in Lisbon, and in 2017 at EMNLP in Copenhagen. Keynote presentations will be given by Prof. Qun Liu (Noah's Ark Lab, Huawei) and Dr. Kellie Webster (Google AI).


DiscoMT 2019 solicits submissions on any of the following topics and any language pairs, but also welcomes submissions that link discourse studies with machine translation in some other way.

- discourse processing in support of MT:

. textual coherence, including anaphora, coreference, tense, aspect and modality

. textual cohesion, including lexical consistency

. discourse structure, including use of connectives and information structuring devices

. topic structure

. consistency in style and register;

- MT techniques for obtaining document-level consistency and domain adaptability;

- MT techniques for structured documents;

- methods and algorithms to handle discourse-level phenomena in all approaches to MT,

including neural, statistical and rule-based MT;

- uses of MT techniques in processing discourse-level phenomena;

- techniques and resources for evaluating the effect of efforts targeting

discourse-level phenomena in MT;

- quantitative studies of the impact of discourse-level phenomena

on MT systems, including discourse-aware ones;

- annotation of multilingual corpus resources with discourse-level linguistic information;

- use of language technology to support research in translation studies and contrastive linguistics;

- linguistic studies of discourse with direct relevance for MT.

Long papers should have at most 8 pages of content, not including references. Short papers are limited to 4 pages of content, not including references. There is no constraint on the size of the reference list. Submissions should be anonymous and not disclose in any way the identity of the author(s).
