The 2nd Workshop on Multi-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology (MUMTTT 2015)
Malaga, Spain, 1-2 July 2015
SIGLEX, the Special Interest Group on the Lexicon of the ACL PARSEME, the European IC1207 COST Action
Following the successful workshop on Multi-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology held in conjunction with the MT SUMMIT 2013 conference in Nice (MUMTTT 2013, 3 September 2013), the editors invite submissions for a volume on the same topics to be published by John Benjamins during the second half of 2015. This volume will feature contributions reporting recent advances in the topics which cut across Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Translation Studies and Computational Phraseology. We invite submissions describing substantial work related to the processing of multi word units (MWUs) on topics including, but not limited to, the ones listed below. Authors of the MUMTTT 2013 workshop papers are invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers, but this call is open to all researchers working on relevant topics and willing to share their work. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.
TOPICS (the list below is indicative but not exhaustive):
We invite expressions of interest by 1 November 2014 by email to both contact editors below, including the chapter title, list of prospective authors and affiliation, as well as a 250-word abstract of your contribution. The full submission is expected to be approximatively 5,000 words in length, excluding citations and appendices, and should be formatted according to the publisher’s author guidelines (https://benjamins.com/jbp/additional/jb-guidelines-manuscript-submission-apa.pdf). The deadline for the final contributions is 31 March 2015. Submissions should describe original work, not published before or under consideration for publication elsewhere. Each submission will be evaluated by the scientific committee according to its scientific and technical merit, usefulness of the approach presented, and relevance to the volume scope.
