Second CFP: Special Issue on The Role of Context in Neural Machine Translation Systems and its Evaluation in Natural Language Engineering

Guest editors:

- Sheila Castilho (The ADAPT Centre, School of Applied Languages and Intercultural Studies, Dublin City University)

- Rebecca Knowles (National Research Council Canada)

For this special issue, we invite the submission of papers focusing on the variety of novel implementations of context into neural machine translation systems as well as novel approaches to its evaluation. Recent claims that machine translation systems are reaching (near) human parity at the sentence level have been followed by subsequent analyses that indicate remaining gaps in translation quality at the document level. How best to evaluate machine translation at the document level (and what exactly constitutes document level evaluation) remains an open question. At the same time, there is work seeking to add discourse and context into neural machine translation systems. Papers that focus on topics of context in neural machine translation, machine translation evaluation, or both are welcome.

For full details, see:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Novel language processing techniques for implementing discourse in NMT systems

- Document-level NMT and evaluation

- Use of target and source context

- Context-aware techniques for quality evaluation

- Context-aware automatic and human evaluation metrics

- The size and composition of the training data and its effect on context-aware systems

- The effect of the quality of training data and test sets on context-aware systems

- Translationese and its effect on document-level training

- Lexical diversity and lexical density in discourse NMT

- Discourse NMT for different domains
