PEMDT1 @ AMTA 2020 October 6th Due to COVID-19, we are virtual now!


Building on the success of past workshops that address post-editing, such as the ones held at AMTA 2018 and MT Summit 2019, we present PEMDT1 ( https://www.naturallang.com/post-editing). Like its predecessors, this workshop will bring together post-editing translation tool users (practitioners) and researchers to compare and contrast how each use digital technology for translation. Specifically, the workshop focuses on novel advances in modern-day Computer-Assisted Tools (CAT) such as, but not limited to, Automatic Post-Editing (APE), Neural Machine Translation (NMT), and post-editing techniques and their usefulness as components in a practitioner's workflow. The workshop's aim is to gain a modern-day outlook on tools and the latest research in the post-editing sector. There will be open discussion amongst attendees along with invited speakers with an attempt to discern what is best for the post-editing field. Topics of Interest

We are highly interested in (1) original research papers and (2) demos on the topics below; however, we welcome all novel ideas that cover human involvement with digital translation tools:

Inclusion of practitioner (post-editing or translator) feedback

Automatic post-editing approaches

Interactive post-editing techniques

Practitioner productivity studies

Studies on post-editing effectiveness

Evaluation mechanisms for post-editing

Novel uses of post-editing techniques

Quality comparisons of machine translation and post-editing

Machine translation integration with post-editing

Post-editing quality estimation

Error analysis of post-editing operations

Tools that use post-editing and machine translation

Machine translation inclusion in CAT tools

Metrics that relate post-editing productivity to machine translation performance

Text-based systems that operate on any of the above

Neural and deep learning approaches of any type (machine translation, post-editing, or CAT tools)

Interactive machine translation use and implementation

*Research Papers*

Original papers are accepted for submission similar to those of AMTA 2020. Papers must not exceed 12 (twelve) pages with unlimited pages for references, and must be formatted according to the AMTA style guide: PDF version / LaTeX version / MS Word version. These papers will be rigorously reviewed for novelty and impact, and they will be published in the AMTA proceedings. They will be presented at the PEMDT workshop as oral presentations.

Submitted papers must be in PDF. To allow for blind reviewing, please do not include author names and affiliations within the paper, and avoid obvious self-references. Papers must be submitted to the START system ( https://www.softconf.com/amta2020/pemdt1) by 11:59 pm (UTC-12), Wednesday, 26 August 2020.

Papers must represent new work that has not been previously published (pre-prints posted online on servers such as arXiv do not count as published papers, and thus are allowed to be submitted). It is the responsibility of the author(s) to inform the program organizers of any potential problem with respect to this requirement. Authors submitting a similar paper both to PEMDT and another conference or workshop must inform the organizers by email (see below for organizer information), specifying to which other conference or workshop they are submitting their work. If a paper is accepted at both PEMDT and another workshop/conference, then to appear at PEMDT it can either be presented at PEMDT as a full paper and withdrawn from the other conference, or it can be withdrawn from the proceedings, but still presented at PEMDT as a non-archival extended abstract. Full papers presented at the conference and included in the proceedings will also be hosted on the ACL Anthology.


We also invite one-page descriptions of interesting tools related to post-editing, including commercial products, in-house systems, research prototypes and open source software. Authors should be ready to present demos of the tools during the workshop. See Demo submission instructions below.

Demo submissions consist of a 1-page product description. They should not be anonymized. Please email your demo submissions directly to John Ortega by 11:59 pm (UTC-12), Wednesday, 26 August 2020. Important Dates
