EMNLP 2015 Workshop on Discourse in Machine Translation

DiscoMT 2015


The EMNLP 2015 workshop on Discourse in MT follows up from the ACL 2013 DiscoMT workshop.  As in the first edition, the 2015 workshop  will focus on language processing techniques, whether theoretically-inspired or empirical, which address one or more discourse-level phenomena in combination with MT or from a cross-lingual perspective.The goal is to present methods and software that enhance the capabilities of MT systems on discourse-level phenomena, but also studies that assess the quantity and origins of MT difficulties with discourse, including for research and commercial MT systems.

DiscoMT 2015 will include a shared task on pronoun translation, composed of two sub-tasks: cross-lingual pronoun prediction, and pronoun translation.



22 November 2014 - The European Association for Machine Translation has generously agreed to fund the manual evaluation of the pronoun translation shared task.
7 November 2014 - The website of the workshop has been made public.
2 November 2014 -
The workshop proposal has been accepted by the joint ACL/NAACL/EMNLP selection committee.
