1st Call for Workshop Proposals: Machine Translation Summit 2019

1st Call for Workshop Proposals: Machine Translation Summit 2019

Dublin, Ireland
https://www.mtsummit2019.com/

Machine Translation Summit workshops are intended to provide the
opportunity for MT-related communities of interest to spend time
together advancing the state of thinking or the state of practice in
their area of endeavour. We are particularly interested in submissions
related to commercialisation of MT and/or its use by translators.
However, any themes connected to MT research, development, deployment,
use, and evaluation are welcome. Topics for past workshops have included
post-editing, translation of patents, monolingual aspects of MT,
collaborative translation, lexical resources, and MT research and the
translation industry, to mention just a few.
