Best Papers

Authors of selected papers will be invited to contribute extended versions of their papers as book chapters for an edited volume on hybrid MT.

Call for Papers


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.

Topics of interest

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

Contributions can be 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 Short paper submission must describe original and unpublished work without exceeding five pages of content plus one extra page for references.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 Long paper submissions must describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work without exceeding eight pages of content plus two extra pages for references. Submissions will be judged according to the criteria of the main conference (EACL 2014).

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit papers on original and previously unpublished work. Formatting should be according to EACL 2014 specifications using LaTeX or MS-Word style files (see "submission format" section). 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 the following url:

Double submission policy: Parallel submission to other meetings or publications are possible but must be immediately notified to the workshop contact person (see below). If accepted, withdrawals are only possible within two days after notification.

For an accepted paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one author must register for the workshop and actually present the paper. The papers will be published in the workshop proceedings which will be made available via the ACL Anthology.
