CALL FOR PAPERS:

 FreeRBMT12

 Third International Workshop on
 Free/Open-source Rule-based Machine Translation

 Gothenburg, Sweden, 13-15 June 2012

 http://www.chalmers.se/hosted/freerbmt12-en

This workshop aims to bring together the experience of researchers
and developers in the field of rule-based machine translation who
have decided to get on board the free/open-source train and are
effectively contributing to creating a commons of explicit knowledge:
machine translation rules and dictionaries, and machine translation
systems whose behaviour is transparent and clearly traceable through
their explicit logic.

The previous FreeRBMT workshops took place in Barcelona (2011)
and Alacant/Alicante (2009).


==Scope==

The main areas of interest for the workshop are as follows:
- Language-independent toolkits, platforms, and frameworks for
 rule-based machine translation
- Language-specific machine translation systems
- Hybrid systems where RBMT is an important component
- Manual and automated evaluation of machine translation systems,
 comparative evaluation of RBMT and SMT/hybrid systems.
- Linguistic resources for RBMT (machine-readable dictionaries,
 part-of-speech taggers, morphological analysers, syntactic or
 semantic parsers etc.)
- Methods for inducing/inferring data for RBMT systems (supervised,
 semi-supervised or unsupervised)
- Interoperability between systems, tools, data
- Practical descriptions of RBMT integration and usage (in publishing,
 by professional translators, for free/open-source software)

Note that this is intended as a guideline, and we welcome submissions
on other aspects of free and open-source rule-based machine translation.


==Submission==

The submission will be via EasyChair. Papers in pdf have the maximum length
of 8 pages. Submission details will appear on the web page soon.

 Deadline:     7 April 2012
 Notification: 5 May 2012

==Proceedings==

Open access proceedings with an ISBN number. Details TBA.

==Invited speakers==

As invited speaker, we will have the pleasure to hear

 Martin Kay, Stanford University and Saarland University
