Call For Papers

We are glad to inform you that we are organizing the Shared Task cum workshop on Machine translation in Indian Languages (MTIL) on 7th and 8th Sep-2017 at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore. We would like to invite the researchers/ research groups working on Indian Language Machine Translation Systems to participate in the Shared Task MTIL. Apart from the shared task, we are accepting scientific papers on topics related to Machine Translation in Indian Languages. Topics of interest include but are not limited to::

* Rule-based and Statistical Machine Translation.
* Comparable corpora and Bilingual Embeddings for SMT.
* Machine Translation for Morphologically Rich languages.
* Post Editing in Machine Translation.
* Automatic Machine Translation Evaluation.
* Neural Machine Translation (NMT).
* Incorporating linguistic information into SMT and NMT.

__________________________

Important Dates (Workshop):

* Paper submission deadline - 15th June-2017
* Paper notification - 1st August-2017
* Camera-ready version due - 8th August-2017
* Workshop Date - 7th and 8th of September-2017

---------------------------------------SHAREDTASK-------------------------------- ------------------------------------
The shared task is proposed with the following objectives.
1) To scrutinize the state-of-art machine translation mechanisms when translating from English to Indian languages.
2) To explore the challenges faced in translating between morphologically divergent languages in terms of syntactic structure and morphology.
3) To create high-quality open source parallel corpora for machine translation task for Indian languages.
4) To explore the recent Deep Neural translation systems for Indian Languages.
We believe that open-source parallel corpora provided in the shared task competition will motivate beginners and established research groups to participate in this task

Note :
All the accepted shared task working notes and workshop proceedings will be submitted to CEUR-WS.org for online publication. The Extended version of the best working notes and workshop papers will be submitted to the following journal:

1. Journal of Intelligent Systems - Indexed by Scopus and E-SCI
2.Translation Review - Indexed by Scopus
