Call for Papers

Electronic Submission:

MT Summit XIII 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.
  • User's studies (including manager's experiences)

It is acceptable to submit your paper to another conference, provided you declare this double submission at the time you make your submission to Machine Translation Summit. If the paper is accepted by the other conference and you decide to withdraw it from MT Summit, you must notify us of your intention to withdraw as soon as you receive the acceptance from the other conference. Also note that for each paper accepted by MT Summit, it is expected that at least one author of that paper will attend MT Summit.

There will be two types of papers:

(R) Regular papers (Category A and B only): Submissions are invited for reports of significant research results or user’s studies in any aspect of machine translation and related areas. Such reports should include a substantial evaluation component.

(P) Poster presentations (with or without demonstration) (Category A, B and C): 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 category (A, B or C), a type of paper (Regular paper or Poster presentations), a 100 word abstract, and up to 5 keywords. MT Summit XIII uses electronic submission through the EasyChair 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.
