 *Second Workshop on Hybrid Approaches to Translation (HyTra)*

Sofia, Bulgaria

August 8, 2013

 Deadline for paper submissions: April 30, 2013

 The Second Workshop on Hybrid Approaches to Translation (HyTra) intends to
further progress on the findings from the first edition which was held
(together with the ESIRMT workshop) as a joint 2-day EACL 2012 workshop.

 The aim of the HyTra workshop is to bring together and share ideas among
researchers developing statistical, example-based, or rule-based
translation systems and who enhance MT systems with elements from the other
approaches. Hereby one relevant focus will be on effectively combining
linguistic and data driven approaches (rule-based and statistical MT).
Another focus will be on hybridization in the context of human translation.

 We solicit contributions including but not limited to the following topics:


   ways and techniques of hybridization

   architectures for the rapid development of hybrid MT systems

   applications of hybrid systems

   hybrid systems dealing with under-resourced languages

   hybrid systems dealing with morphologically rich languages

   using linguistic information (morphology, syntax, semantics) to enhance
   statistical MT (e.g. with hierarchical or factored models)

   using contextual information to enhance statistical MT

   bootstrapping rule-based systems from corpora

   hybrid methods in spoken language translation

   extraction of dictionaries from parallel and comparable corpora

   induction of morphological, grammatical, and translation rules from

   machine learning techniques for hybrid MT

   describing structural mappings between languages (e.g. tree-structures
   using synchronous/transduction grammars)

   heuristics for limiting the search space in hybrid MT

   alternative methods for the fair evaluation of the output of different
   types of MT systems (e.g. relying on linguistic criteria)

   system combination approaches such as multi-engine MT (parallel) or
   automatic post-editing (sequential)

   open source tools and free language resources for hybrid MT

 Contributions are to be organized into two tracks, corresponding to short
or long papers. Short paper submission must describe original and
unpublished work without exceeding five pages of content plus one extra
page for references. Characteristics of short papers include: a small,
focused contribution; work in progress; a negative result; an opinion
piece; an interesting application nugget. Long paper submissions must
describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work without
exceeding eight pages of content plus two extra pages for references.

 *Submission Instructions*

 Authors are invited to submit papers on original and previously
unpublished work. Formatting should be according to ACL 2013 specifications
using LaTeX or MS-Word style files, see *http://acl2013.org/site/call.html*.
Reviewing of papers will be double-blind, so the submissions should not
reveal the authors’ identity.

 Submission is electronic in PDF format using the START submission system
at (URL to be announced in subsequent versions of this call)

 Double submission policy: Parallel submission to other meetings or
publications are possible but must be immediately notified to the workshop
contact person (see below).

 Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their research at
the workshop. The papers will be published in the electronic workshop
proceedings. These will be part of the ACL proceedings, published by ACL.
They will also be made available online via the ACL Anthology.

 *Important Dates*

 April 30, 2013: Paper submissions due

May 24, 2013: Notification of acceptance

Jun 7, 2013: Camera ready papers due

August 8 or 9, 2013: Workshop in Sofia
