Machine Translation Summit XIII

- Call for Workshop Proposals -

Xiamen, China

19th 23rd September 2011


Proposals for workshops are now being solicited on topics of direct interest and impact for MT researchers, developers, vendors or users of MT technologies. MT Summit XIII workshops bring together groups of people (peers) involved in a specific problem area of machine translation, to advance the state of the art in that area. Workshops focus on group participation rather than instruction.


Workshops are typically held the day after the main conference, and this year will be held on Friday 23rd September. Workshops will normally last a whole day (approx. 8 hours). Workshops can take a variety of forms, including refereed and invited papers, hands-on exercises, discussion and debate, or other activities. Proposers will be asked to issue their own Call for Papers, and to maintain a web site giving information about the submission procedure and, later on, the full program. Working language of the workshops will normally be English; however, it is acceptable to have a second (or alternative) working language if this is appropriate to the theme of the workshop. This should be stated clearly on the proposal.


Submissions should be made to the Chair (e-mail: by April 8th. They should include the theme and goal of the workshop, the planned activities, a calendar of deadlines for submission including the dates for workshop submissions, notification and, if appropriate, camera-ready copy (we advise that you follow the submission dates for the main conference), and an estimate of the number of participants.


Note that we will evaluate Workshop proposals as soon as they are  submitted. The last day for submissions is April 8th, 2011
