Conference Call for Papers

OVERVIEW

This year\’s conference will feature the following shared tasks:

a news translation task
a biomedical translation task ,
an automatic post-editing task,
a metrics task (assess MT quality given reference translation).
a quality estimation task (assess MT quality without access to any reference),
a multimodal translation task

In addition to the shared tasks, the conference will also feature scientific papers on topics related to MT. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

word-based, phrase-based, syntax-based, semantics-based SMT
neural machine translation
using comparable corpora for MT
incorporating linguistic information into SMT
decoding
system combination
error analysis
manual and automatic method for evaluating MT
scaling MT to very large data sets

We encourage authors to evaluate their approaches to the above topics using the common data sets created for the shared tasks.
