SCOPE


Based
on the success of past low-resource machine translation (MT) workshops at AMTA 2018 (https://amtaweb.org/), MT Summit 2019 (https://www.mtsummit2019.com),
AACL-IJCNLP 2020 (http://aacl2020.org/), AMTA 2021, COLING 2022 and EACL 2023, we introduce the Seventh LoResMT Workshop at ACL 2024. The workshop provides a discussion panel for researchers working on MT
systems/methods for low-resource and under-represented languages in general. We would like to help review/overview the state of MT for low-resource languages and define the most important directions. We also solicit papers dedicated to supplementary NLP tools
that are used in any language and especially in low-resource languages. Overview papers on these NLP tools are very welcome. It will be beneficial if the evaluations of these tools in research papers include their impact on the quality of MT output.



TOPICS


We
are highly interested in (1) original research papers, (2) review/opinion papers, and (3) online systems on the topics below; however, we welcome all novel ideas that cover research on low-resource languages.


-
Neural machine translation (NMT) for low-resource languages

-
Use of LLMs (large language models) for low-resource MT systems

-
COVID-related corpora, their translations and corresponding NLP/MT systems

-
Work that presents online systems for practical use by native speakers

-
Word tokenizers/de-tokenizers for specific languages

-
Word/morpheme segmenters for specific languages

-
Alignment/Re-ordering tools for specific language pairs

-
Use of morphology analyzers and/or morpheme segmenters in MT

-
Multilingual/cross-lingual NLP tools for MT

-
Corpora creation and curation technologies for low-resource languages

-
Review of available parallel corpora for low-resource languages

-
Research and review papers on MT methods for low-resource languages

-
MT systems/methods (e.g. rule-based, SMT, NMT) for low-resource languages

-
Pivot MT for low-resource languages

-
Zero-shot MT for low-resource languages

-
Fast building of MT systems for low-resource languages

-
Re-usability of existing MT systems for low-resource languages

-
Machine translation for language preservation



SUBMISSION
INFORMATION


We
are soliciting two types of submissions: (1) research, review, and position papers and (2) system demonstration papers. For research, review and position papers, the length of each paper should be at least four (4) and not exceed eight (8) pages, plus unlimited
pages for references. For system demonstration papers, the limit is four (4) pages. Submissions should be formatted according to the official ACL 2024 style templates. Accepted papers will be published online in the ACL 2024 proceedings and will be presented
at the conference.


Submissions
must be anonymized and should be done using the provided submission system. Scientific papers that have been or will be submitted to other venues must be declared as such and must be withdrawn from the other venues if accepted and published at LoResMT. The
review will be double-blind. Authors of an accepted paper should present their paper in person at ACL 2024. Papers should be submitted in PDF to the LoResMT Open Review.


We
would like to encourage authors to cite papers written in ANY language that are related to the topics, as long as both original bibliographic items and their corresponding English translations are provided.


Registration
is handled by the main conference (https://2024.aclweb.org/).
