[eu_members at aclweb dot org] Canada: MT Summit XII -- Call for Research Papers

MT Summit XII

26-30 August 2009, Ottawa, Canada

Call for Research Papers

MT Summit XII seeks original papers about all aspects of machine translation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • MT technology
  • Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools for lexica, etc.)
  • Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.)
  • Human factors in MT and user interfaces for MT
  • MT combined with other technologies (speech translation, cross-language information retrieval, multilingual text categorization, multilingual text summarization, multilingual natural language generation, etc.)
  • Dictionaries and lexica for MT
  • Text and speech corpora for MT, and knowledge extraction for MT
  • Standards in text and lexicon encoding for MT
  • MT evaluation techniques and evaluation results.

There will be two categories of research papers:

(R) Regular papers: Submissions are invited for reports of significant research results in any aspect of machine translation and related areas. Such reports should include a substantial evaluation component.

(P) Poster presentations (with or without demonstration): Submissions are invited for presentations that are best suited for poster sessions, which are more interactive. Submissions are also invited for reports on the design, implementation, operation and evaluation of operational and prototype systems.

Both types of paper should include a 100 word abstract, and up to 5 keywords. MT Summit XII uses electronic submission through the START conference tool.

Formatting Guidelines

Papers must be submitted in pdf. The document MT-Summit.pdf contains precise formatting instructions that should be used both for submission versions and for final versions of your papers. At the same time MT-Summit.pdf can be seen as an instance of the correct format, since it is formated in accordance with the guidelines it describes. Latex users should use our style file acl08.sty together with the ACL bibliography style acl.bst. MS-Word users should use our MT-Summit.dot template.
