MT Summit XV solicits original research papers that will advance the field of Machine Translation. We seek submissions across the entire spectrum of MT-related research activity. Submissions must be unpublished, and in English.

Important dates:

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

If you have research software that you would like to show, you may also consider submitting a proposal for the MT Summit Technology Showcase. See the “Call for MT Technology Demonstrations and Exhibits” link on the conference website.

Papers must not exceed 12 (twelve) pages plus 4 (four) pages for references. All papers should follow the formatting instructions included with the style files, and should be submitted in PDF. Latex, PDF and MS Word style files are available: mtsummit2015 mtsummit2015 mtsummit2015.latex

To allow for blind reviewing, please do not include author names and affiliations within the paper and avoid obvious self-references.

Papers must be submitted to the START system here by 11:59 pm PDT (GMT – 7 hours), Friday, July 10, 2015.

 

Multiple Submissions:

Papers presented at MT Summit XV must represent new work that has not been previously published. It is the responsibility of the author(s) to inform the program chairs of any potential problem with respect to this requirement. Authors submitting a similar paper both to MT Summit XV and another conference or workshop must inform the program chairs by email (mtresearchers@amtaweb.org), specifying to which other conference or workshop they are submitting their work. If the paper is accepted and presented at MT Summit XV, then it must be withdrawn from other conferences and workshops.

The Commercial Users and Translators track will focus on how MT helps individual translators, Language Service Providers, and enterprise users deliver their products and services more effectively. Submissions should report on the use of MT to support business goals and serve customer needs in commercial settings by integrating it with other processes and technologies.
Example MT use cases include supplying on-demand localization, providing technical support information in multiple languages, and enabling global consumer-to-consumer transactions. Example products and services include MT integration with translator productivity tools, cloud-based MT services for integration with other web and mobile applications, and customization and deployment of MT engines for specific needs. See more possible topics below.

Important dates:

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

What to submit:
Please submit a 250 to 500-word abstract describing your presentation to the Commercial MT Users Chairs (commercialmtusers@amtaweb.org) by 11:59 pm PDT (GMT – 7 hours), Monday, July 13, 2015.
If you have any questions, you can ask the Program Chairs at this same email address.
Ideal presentations will describe how MT helps to address a specific business challenge, with an objective assessment of its strengths and weaknesses for that particular challenge, supported by quantitative measures.
Submissions should not contain commercial solicitations of specific tools. If you have original software that you would like to show, you may also consider submitting a proposal for free space in the MT Summit Technology Showcase. See the “Call for MT Technology Demonstrations and Exhibits” on the conference website.

Publication
Please indicate whether you intend to submit your presentation for publication in the MT Summit XV Conference Proceedings. Publication in the Conference Proceedings is not a requirement, but we strongly suggest that you make your presentation available so other people can learn from your experiences.
If you want to have your presentation published as part of the Proceedings, it is preferred that you format it according to the Research track submission guidelines (See Call for MT Research Papers for details). However, slide decks or extended abstracts may also be accepted.
