First Conference on Machine Translation (WMT16) at ACL 2016

11 August 2016 - 12 August 2016

First Conference on Machine Translation (WMT16) at ACL 2016

This year’s conference will feature ten shared tasks:

  • a news translation task,
  • an IT domain translation task (NEW),
  • a biomedical translation task (NEW),
  • an automatic post-editing task,
  • a metrics task (assess MT quality given reference translation).
  • a quality estimation task (assess MT quality without access to any reference),
  • a tuning task (optimize a given MT system),
  • a pronoun translation task,
  • a bilingual document alignment task (NEW),
  • a multimodal translation task (NEW)

In addition to the shared tasks, the conference will also feature scientific papers on topics related to MT. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • word-based, phrase-based, syntax-based, semantics-based SMT
  • neural machine translation
  • using comparable corpora for SMT
  • incorporating linguistic information into SMT
  • decoding
  • system combination
  • error analysis
  • manual and automatic method for evaluating MT
  • scaling MT to very large data sets
