                 CALL FOR PAPERS:


The Fourth Machine Translation Marathon, which will take place January  
25-30 in Dublin, Ireland, is hosting an Open Source Convention to  
advance the state of the art in machine translation. The MT Marathon  
is organised by the National Centre for Language Technology and the  
Centre for Next Generation Localisation at Dublin City University on  
behalf of the EuroMatrixPlus Consortium.

We invite developers of open source tools to present their work and  
submit a paper of up to 10 pages that (a) describes the underlying  
methodology and (b) includes instructions how to use the tools.

We are looking for stand-alone tools and extensions of existing tools,  
such as the Moses open source systems. Accepted papers will be  
presented during the MT Marathon and published as a special issue of  
the Prague Bulletin of Mathematical Linguistics (http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/pbml 

Possible topics:

* training of machine translation models
* machine translation decoders
* tuning of machine translation systems
* evaluation of machine translation
* visualization, annotation or debugging tools

* other tools for machine translation

This is the second time that the MT Marathon will host the Open Source
