EIGHTH WORKSHOP ON STATISTICAL MACHINE TRANSLATION (co-located with ACL 2013, August 8-9, 2013, Sofia, Bulgaria) http://www.statmt.org/wmt13/
*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***
We invite the submission of scientific papers on topics related to MT.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* word-based, phrase-based, syntax-based SMT
* using comparable corpora for SMT
* incorporating linguistic information into SMT
* system combination and selection
* error analysis
* manual and automatic method for evaluating MT
* quality estimation of MT
* scaling MT to very large data sets
The workshop will feature three shared tasks:
* a translation task
* a task to test automatic evaluation metrics
* a translation quality estimation task
Separate emails will announce the details about the tasks.
PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION
Submissions will consist of regular full papers of 6-10 pages, plus additional pages for references, formatted following the ACL 2013 guidelines. In addition, shared task participants will be invited to submit short papers (4-6 pages) describing their systems or their evaluation metrics. Both submission and review processes will be handled electronically.
We encourage individuals who are submitting research papers to evaluate their approaches using the training resources provided by this workshop and past workshops, so that their experiments can be repeated by others using these publicly available corpora.
