 *Workshop Description*

 The Second Workshop on Hybrid Approaches to Translation (HyTra) intends to
further progress on the findings from the first edition which was held
(together with the ESIRMT workshop) as a joint 2-day EACL 2012 workshop.

 The aim of the HyTra workshop is to bring together and share ideas among
researchers developing statistical, example-based, or rule-based
translation systems and those who enhance MT systems with elements from the
other approaches. Hereby one relevant focus will be on effectively
combining linguistic and data driven approaches (rule-based and statistical
MT). Another focus will be on hybridization in the context of human

 We solicit contributions including but not limited to the following topics:


   ways and techniques of hybridization

   architectures for the rapid development of hybrid MT systems

   applications of hybrid systems

   hybrid systems dealing with under-resourced languages

   hybrid systems dealing with morphologically rich languages

   using linguistic information (morphology, syntax, semantics) to enhance
   statistical MT (e.g. with hierarchical or factored models)

   using contextual information to enhance statistical MT

   bootstrapping rule-based systems from corpora

   hybrid methods in spoken language translation

   extraction of dictionaries and other large-scale resources for MT from
   parallel and comparable corpora

   induction of morphological, grammatical, and translation rules from

   machine learning techniques for hybrid MT

   describing structural mappings between languages (e.g. tree-structures
   using synchronous/transduction grammars)

   heuristics for limiting the search space in hybrid MT

   alternative methods for the fair evaluation of the output of different
   types of MT systems (e.g. relying on linguistic criteria)

   system combination approaches such as multi-engine MT (parallel) or
   automatic post-editing (sequential)

   open source tools and free language resources for hybrid MT

 Contributions can be short or long papers. Short paper submission must
describe original and unpublished work without exceeding five pages of
content plus one extra page for references. Characteristics of short papers
include: a small, focused contribution; work in progress; a negative
result; an opinion piece; an interesting application nugget. Long paper
submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished
work without exceeding eight pages of content plus two extra pages for
references. Submissions will be judged according to the criteria of the
main conference (of ACL 2013).

 *Submission Instructions*

 Authors are invited to submit papers on original and previously
unpublished work. Formatting should be according to ACL 2013 specifications
using LaTeX or MS-Word style files, see *http://acl2013.org/site/call.html*.
Reviewing of papers will be double-blind, so the submissions should not
reveal the authors’ identity.

 Submission is electronic in PDF format using the START submission system
at *https://www.softconf.com/acl2013/HyTra/*<https://www.softconf.com/acl2013/HyTra/>

 Double submission policy: Parallel submission to other meetings or
publications are possible but must be immediately notified to the workshop
contact person (see below).

 For an accepted paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one author
must register for the workshop and actually present the paper. The papers
will be published in the electronic workshop proceedings. These will be
part of the ACL proceedings, published by ACL. They will also be made
available online via the ACL Anthology.

 *Important Dates*

 **May 14, 2013: Paper submissions due**

May 24, 2013: Notification of acceptance

Jun 7, 2013: Camera ready papers due

August 8, 2013: Workshop in Sofia
