Call for papers

Categories and topics

Research: technical

  • Deep-learning approaches for machine translation and machine translation evaluation
  • Advances in classical MT paradigms: statistical, rule-based, and hybrid approaches
  • Comparison of various machine translation approaches
  • Technologies for machine translation deployment: quality estimation, domain adaptation, etc.
  • Resources and evaluation
  • Machine translation in special settings: low resources, massive resources, high volume, low computing resources
  • Machine translation applications: translation/localization aids, speech translation, multimodal machine translation, machine translation for user generated content (blogs, social networks), machine translation in computer-aided language learning, etc.
  • Linguistic resources for machine translation: corpora, terminologies, dictionaries, etc.
  • Machine translation evaluation techniques, metrics, and evaluation results
  • Human factors in machine translation and user interfaces
  • Related multilingual technologies: natural language generation, information retrieval, text categorization, text summarization, information extraction, optical character recognition, etc.

Research: translators & users

  • The impact of machine translation and post-editing: including studies on processes, effort, strategies, usability, productivity, pricing, workflows, and post-editese
  • Human factors and psycho-social aspects of machine translation adoption (ergonomics, motivation, and social impact on the profession, relationship between user profiles and machine translation adoption)
  • Emerging areas for machine translation & post-editing: e.g. audiovisual, game localisation, literary texts, creative texts, social media, health care communication, crisis translation
  • Machine translation and ethics
  • The impact of using translators’ metadata and user activity data for monitoring their work
  • The evaluation and reception of different modalities of translation: human translation, post-edited, raw machine translation
  • Machine translation and interpreting
  • Human evaluations of machine translation output
  • Machine translation for gisting and the impact of machine translation on users: use cases, expectations, perceptions, trust, views on acceptability
  • Machine translation and usability
  • Machine translation and education/language learning
  • Machine translation in the translation/interpreting classroom

Implementations and case studies

  • Integrating or optimising machine translation and computer-assisted translation in translation production workflows (translation memory/machine translation thresholds, mixing online and offline tools, using interactive machine translation, dealing with machine translation confidence scores)
  • Managing change when implementing and using machine translation (e.g. switching between multiple machine translation systems, limiting degradations when updating or upgrading an machine translation system)
  • Implementing open-source machine translation (e.g. strategies to get support, reports on taking pilot results into full deployment, examples of advanced customization sought and obtained thanks to the open-source paradigm, collaboration within open-source machine translation projects)
  • Evaluating machine translation in a real-world setting (e.g. error detection strategies employed, metrics used, productivity or translation quality gains achieved)
  • Ethical and confidentiality issues when using machine translation, especially machine translation in the cloud
  • Using machine translation in social networking or real-time communication (e.g. enterprise support chat, multilingual content for social media)
  • Machine translation and usability
  • Implementing machine translation to process multilingual content for assimilation purposes (e.g. cross-lingual information retrieval, machine translation for e-discovery or spam detection, machine translation for highly dynamic content)
  • Machine translation in literary, audiovisual, game localization and creative texts
  • Impact of machine translation and post-editing on translation practices and the profession: processes, effort, compensation,
  • Psycho-social aspects of machine translation adoption (ergonomics, motivation, and social impact on the profession)
  • Error analysis and post-editing strategies (including automatic post-editing and automation strategies)
  • The use of translators’ metadata and user activity data in machine translation development
  • Freelance translators’ independent use of machine translation
  • Machine translation and interpreting

Products & Projects

Products

  • Tools for machine translation
  • Computer-aided translation
  • Other translation technologies (including commercial products and free/open-source software).

Projects

  • Research projects, funded through grants obtained in competitive public or private calls related to machine translation.

There will be a poster boaster session for this track, in which authors will have 120 seconds to attract attendees to their posters or demos with a two-slide presentation.

Best thesis awards 2023

The EAMT Best Thesis Award 2023 for PhD theses defended during 2023 will be awarded at the conference, together with a presentation of the winner’s work.
