Apologies for multiple postings Please distribute to colleagues ================================================================= Second Workshop on Hybrid Approaches to Translation (HyTra) Co-located with ACL 2013 Sofia, Bulgaria August 8, 2013 Deadline for paper submissions: April 30, 2013 http://hytra.barcelonamedia.org/hytra2013 ================================================================= 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 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 translation. 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 from parallel and comparable corpora induction of morphological, grammatical, and translation rules from corpora 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 are to be organized into two tracks, corresponding to 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 Short paper submission must describe original and unpublished work without exceeding five pages of content plus one extra page for references.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. 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 (URL to be announced in subsequent versions of this call) Double submission policy: Parallel submission to other meetings or publications are possible but must be immediately notified to the workshop contact person (see below). Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their research at the workshop. 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 April 30, 2013: Paper submissions due May 24, 2013: Notification of acceptance Jun 7, 2013: Camera ready papers due August 8 or 9, 2013: Workshop in Sofia Organizers Marta R.
