NEW APPROACHES TO MACHINE TRANSLATION A METIS-II WORKSHOP LEUVEN, JANUARY 11TH 2007 http://ccl.kuleuven.be/ws-metis/ Second and Final Call for Papers ================================ Aim --- The aim of the workshop "NEW APPROACHES TO MACHINE TRANSLATION" is to raise awareness of innovative approaches to MT, be it rule-based, example-based, statistical, hybrid, ... which tackle issues raised by "classical approaches", such as issues with respect to algorithms and resources. The workshop consists of a keynote lecture (t.b.a.), invited and submitted papers, a panel discussion and demonstrations. Topics ------ Papers are invited that describe research and development with respect to new approaches in MT, including, but not restricted to, the following: · New machine translation architectures (rule-based, example-based, statistical, hybrid); projects and currently available software: complete engines, modules; · Quality of the translations obtained, especially in comparison to other techniques; · When using lean resources, the effect this has on your techniques/ algorithms, or the information to be specified in these resources; · Post-editing and feedback to the translation engine; · New approaches to the evaluation of MT. All contributions will be published in the workshop proceedings. They will also be made available at the METIS website. Submissions ----------- Abstracts should be in English and up to 10 pages long. For instructions for authors, have a look at http://ccl.kuleuven.be/ws-metis/. The (anonymous) papers will be reviewed by members of the programme committee. Abstracts should be sent via e-mail to ws-metis_(on)_ccl.kuleuven.be. The deadline for submission is October 1st, 2006. Programme committee ------------------- Frank Van Eynde (CCL, Leuven) (co-chair) Stella Markantonatou (ILSP, Athens) (co-chair) Vincent Vandeghinste (CCL, Leuven) Michael Carl (IAI, Saarbrucken) Maite Melero (FUPF, Barcelona) Local organization ------------------ Centre for Computational Linguistics, K.U.Leuven: Peter Dirix, Ineke Schuurman, and Vincent Vandeghinste Timetable --------- Paper submission deadline: Oct 1, 2006 Notification of acceptance: Nov 1, 2006 Final version of paper: Dec 1, 2006 Workshop: Jan 11, 2007 About the METIS-II project -------------------------- The partners involved in the METIS-II project are: ILSP (Institute for Language and Speech Processing), Athens, Greece K.U.Leuven (Centre for Computational Linguistics), Leuven, Belgium IAI (Institut fur Angewandte Informationsforschung), Saarbrücken, Germany FUPF (Fundacio Universitat Pompeu Fabra), Barcelona, Spain METIS-II (10-2004 09-2007) is a hybrid machine translation system, in which insights from statistical, example-based, and rule-based machine translation (SMT, EBMT, and RBMT respectively) are used. METIS investigates rule-based and data-driven methods to the extent they can be built and used with relative ease and they complement each other. Rule-based methods are used where representations and decisions can be determined a-priori with high accuracy, for instance, based on linguistic insight. Corpora serve as a basis to ground decisions where uncertainty remains. Data-driven methods are used for target language generation, using only a target language corpus and a bilingual dictionary instead of a parallel corpus. METIS-II website: http://www.ilsp.gr/metis2/ CLIN 17 ------- The METIS-II workshop is organised in conjunction with CLIN 17 (Computational Linguistics in the Netherlands), which will also be organised in Leuven (January 12th 2007).
