Research Papers

MT Summit XIV seeks original, unpublished research papers on all aspects of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,
    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 are available at the conference website.

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.
