** TRITON (TRanslation and Interpreting Technology ONline) ** 5, 6 and 7 July 2021
-- TRITON: Forum for recent advances in technologies for translation and interpreting and more
Technologies for translation and interpreting have benefited from promising recent advances including the employment of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and deep learning technology amongst other latest solutions. The current pandemic has prevented the in-person exchange of ideas and networking of researchers and practitioners working on translation technology, interpreting technology, machine translation and NLP in general, but virtual communication opportunities have enabled continued collaboration and provided alternative communication channels. While eagerly awaiting the return of normality, we are proud to announce the event TRITON (TRanslation and Interpreting Technology ONline) offering an opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from each other and interact virtually.
TRITON will be an online event which will feature two days of conference presentations and one day of tutorials. The conference will take the form of keynote/invited speakers, as well as oral and poster presentations. A number of leading scholars and industry stakeholders will be invited as keynote speakers; oral presentations and posters will be accepted following a vigorous review process. In addition, brainstorming sessions for students who are researching or planning to research on specific topics, will be offered. The programme will be complemented by TRITON tutorials on hot topics from the fields of translation technology, interpreting technology or NLP.
-- Conference topics
Topics covered include (computational or traditional approaches to) Machine Translation, CAT tools, Interpreting Technology, Audiovisual Translation, cognitive approaches (to technologies for) Translation and Interpreting, multilingual NLP, NLP for translation, NLP for interpreting, NLP in educational applications and any topics related to Translation Technology, Interpreting Technology or NLP.
-- Submissions and publication
The conference invites submissions reporting original unpublished work.
TRITON invites two types of submissions: regular papers (oral presentations) and poster papers (poster presentations). Both research papers discussing specific project/study and user papers sharing specific experience as a practitioner are welcome.
Regular papers should not exceed 7 pages excluding references; regular papers are expected to focus on completed research reporting results and conclusions. Poster papers should not exceed 4 pages excluding references and can report work in-progress in addition to completed study. The submissions should be formatted in compliance with Springer-based Word and LaTeX templates available on the conference website (http://triton-conference.org/submission/).
The conference will not consider the submission and evaluation of abstracts only.
Submission is electronic, using the Softconf START conference management system. For submissions please follow https://www.softconf.com/l/triton2021/. Please choose the relevant track (research or user).
Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Programme Committee or reviewers appointed by the conference chairs.
The TRITON proceedings will be published in the form of e-proceedings which will be available at the time of the conference. Each paper will have a DOI assigned, the e-volume will have an ISBN and our plan is to have to have it uploaded onto the ACL anthology.
Authors of accepted papers will receive guidelines regarding how to produce camera-ready versions of their papers for inclusion in the e-proceedings. Only registered participants will have their accepted papers published in the e-proceedings.
-- Brainstorming sessions for students
Students can submit proposals for brainstorming sessions which will be reviewed and those accepted, will take the form of discussion attended by the student, experienced researchers and other students, and will be allocated suitable slots in the programme. Please note that due to programme constraints, not all proposals for brainstorming sessions can be accepted and only registered participants will have their brainstorming sessions allocated a slot.
The proposals for brainstorming sessions should be minimum 200 words and maximum 500 words, should introduce the topic of the research the student is working on/intends to work on, summarise what she has done/so far and spell out what ideas the student would welcome. To submit a proposal for brainstorming session please go to https://www.softconf.com/l/triton2021/ and from ‘Make a new Submission’, choose the track corresponding to ‘Brainstorming session for students’
Proposals for brainstorming sessions can be made here no later than 15 June 2021.
