2--6 September 2013
Nice, France


The Fourteenth Machine Translation Summit, organized by the 
International Association for Machine Translation and the European 
Association for Machine Translation, will be held at the ACROPOLIS 
conference centre, Nice, France, 2--6 September 2013.

The conference programme for the MT Summit 2013 will include keynote 
speeches by renowned experts in Machine Translation, panel discussions 
and presentations of submitted and invited papers organized in two 
programme tracks - research and commercial/user.

An exhibition of commercial and research systems will be held during the 
conference as well as a 'Project Village' featuring the best of recently 
funded collaborative work. Before the main conference two full days will 
be devoted to tutorials and workshops.  There will be a variety of 
sightseeing tours in the beautiful surroundings of Nice both before and 
after the MT Summit.

*CFP Research Program Track*

The present call concerns Research track papers only; separate calls 
will be made for the Commercial Track as well as for Workshop and 
Tutorial Proposals.

The research Program Committee will be co-chaired by Khalil Sima'an 
(Universiteit van Amsterdam) and Mikel L. Forcada (Universitat 
d'Alacant). All submissions will be reviewed by at least three experts.

*Research Papers*

MT Summit XIV seeks original, unpublished papers about all aspects of 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

  * MT models of any kind (e.g., data-driven, rule-based, hybrid,
    linguistic, hierarchical)
  * MT techniques and computational issues (e.g., adaptation,
    representations, algorithms and complexity)
  * MT evaluation techniques and evaluation results
  * Empirical studies on translation data
  * MT and other technologies (e.g., speech translation, multilingual
    text categorization, multilingual retrieval, text summarization).
  * Text and speech corpora for MT, and knowledge extraction for MT
  * Human factors in MT and user interfaces for MT
  * Dictionaries and lexica for MT
  * Standards in text and lexicon and rule encoding for MT
  * Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools
    for lexica, etc.)
  * Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.)

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 an empirical evaluation component. The 
Regular paper submissions will be presented either orally or as a poster.

(P) /System demonstrations/: Submissions are invited for reports on the 
design, implementation, operation and evaluation of operational and 
prototype systems with an accompanying demonstration.

Both types of papers should include a 100-150 word abstract, and up to 5 
keywords. Further guidelines for authors will be available soon at the 
conference website.


MT Summit XIV will use electronic submission through the EasyChair 
conference tool.

*Important Dates*

Paper submission date: April 15, 2013
Notification of paper acceptance: May 31, 2013
Camera ready paper: July 1, 2013
MT Summit: September 2--6, 2013

*Briefly about Nice*

A seaside city at the French Riviera, Nice has been enjoying, in recent 
years, a genuine economic, cultural, artistic and architectural 
revolution. Creative, dynamic, cosmopolitan, young, Nice is bubbling 
with innovative realizations worthy of Europe's greatest capitals.  
Located between the sea and mountains, Nice reveals unsuspected 
treasures to become the stage for an unforgettable conference and stay.

Reaching Nice is very easy: the Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport 
is the second largest in France, and high-speed trains and a major 
motorway network connect Nice to all major cities in France in Europe.
