                          Special Issue on:
                 Automated Metrics for MT Evaluation

Building on the success of the first NIST Metrics for Machine Translation
Challenge (MetricsMATR), an organized evaluation of automated MT evaluation
metrics, the Machine Translation Journal is now issuing a call for
contributions for a special issue of the journal on the topic of automated
metrics for MT evaluation.  The special issue will primarily focus on the
MetricsMATR evaluation and workshop.  We encourage research groups that are
engaged in innovative and exciting research on automated MT metrics, and
particularly those groups that participated in the MetricsMATR
evaluation, to
submit extended papers describing their metrics and their research.  In
addition, NIST will contribute an extensive paper to the special issue
documenting the evaluation and containing a comprehensive analysis of
results.
This special issue will provide a forum for this vital research to be
published and archived, so that it is accessible to the broad Machine
Translation and Computational Linguistics communities.
