/*Workshop on Post-Editing Technology and Practice (WPTP2) *//*at *//*MT 
Summit XIV*/ <http://www.mtsummit2013.info/>/*, Nice, September 2nd, 2013*/

*Call for Papers*

Following the success of the AMTA 2012 Workshop on Translation 
Post-Editing Technology and Practice (WPTP: 
https://sites.google.com/site/wptp2012), we are organizing WPTP2. Once 
again, this workshop will be an opportunity for post-editing 
practitioners and researchers to get together and openly discuss the 
weaknesses and strengths of existing technology, to properly and 
objectively assess post-editing effectiveness, to establish better 
practices, and propose tools and technological post-editing solutions 
that are built around the needs of users.

This one-day workshop will be held during MT Summit XIV, in Nice 
(France), Sept. 2, 2013. The workshop will feature an invited speaker, 
oral presentations of original work, and a short poster and demo session.

*Topics of interest:*

The broad focus of WPTP1 was technologies and practices associated with 
post-editing. For WPTP2, we propose to place a greater emphasis on 
"technologies". We are particularly interested in attracting original 
papers on the following themes, but also welcome other ideas which touch 
on potential fruitful human-machine collaborations for translation:


    Post-editing user interface design and evaluation


    Tools for crowd and community post-editing


    Automatic prediction of post-editing effort


    Error-detection and error-correction for post-editing


    Innovative uses of post-editor feedback


    Innovative uses of MT data for post-editing


    Integration of MT with translation memory and other CAT tools


    Text pre- and post-processing for post-editing


    Post-editing and mobile devices


    Post-editing evaluation methodology and metrics


    Collecting and sharing post-editing data


    Best practices for post-editing


    Training for post-editing


We also invite one-page descriptions of interesting tools related to 
post-editing, including commercial products, in-house systems and open 
source software. Authors should be ready to present demos of the tools 
during the workshop. See Demo submission instructions below.
