The 5th Workshop on Patent Translation at MT Summit XIV, Nice,

Call for Papers


Workshop Theme


Patent information is one of the major application areas of
machine translation. Five major patent offices in the world:
Japan, Korea, China, Europe and U.S. intend to exchange patent
information through machine translation. The workshop aims to
foster research and development of the technology for patent
translation by providing a forum in which researchers and
practitioners can exchange their ideas, approaches, perspectives,
and experiences from their work in progress. We have successfully
organized a series of workshops in MT Summit X, XI, XII, and
XIII. We will have deeper discussions about this theme in this

Double submission of papers to both the workshop and the main
conference will also be welcomed.

The workshop will consist of 2-3 invited talks and presentation
of submitted papers.

- MT and translation aids for patent documents
