EMNLP 2017 3rd Workshop on Discourse in Machine Translation

DiscoMT 2017

September 8, 2017  -  Copenhagen, Denmark

The third workshop on Discourse in MT, a sattelite workshop of EMNLP 2017, follows up from the ACL 2013 DiscoMT and the EMNLP 2015 DiscoMT workshops.  As in the first two editions, the 2017 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 2017 includes a shared task on pronoun translation, composed of two sub-tasks: cross-lingual pronoun prediction, and pronoun translation.  These are a follow up of the DiscoMT 2015 and the WMT 2016 shared tasks.

DiscoMT endorses the ACL Anti-harassment Policy.
