Ninth Workshop on Syntax, Semantics and Structure in Statistical Translation (SSST-9)

Eneko AGIRRE and Nora ARANBERRI, Ixa Group from University of the Basque Country,  together with Dekai Wu, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and Marine Carpuat, National Research Council (NRC) Canada, are the organizers of the SSST-9 – ”Ninth Workshop on Syntax, Semantics and Structure in Statistical Translation” that takes place in Denver, Colorado, USA, in Jun, 4, 2015. (NAACL HLT 2015 / SIGMT / SIGLEX)

This Workshop seeks to bring together a large number of researchers working on diverse aspects of structure, semantics and representation in relation to statistical machine translation. Since its first edition in 2006, its program each year has comprised high-quality papers discussing current work spanning topics including: new grammatical models of translation; new learning methods for syntax- and semantics-based models; formal properties of synchronous/transduction grammars (hereafter S/TGs); discriminative training of models incorporating linguistic features; using S/TGs for semantics and generation; and syntax- and semantics-based evaluation of machine translation.

QTLeap_LogoQTLeap project Best Paper Award

This year SSST-9 will award a best paper award among papers which advance MT using semantics and deep language processing.

This award is sponsored by the European Union QTLeap project.

IXA talde is a partner in QTLeap (Quality Translation by Deep Language Engineering Approaches),  a project that is run by an European consortium with other seven partners: Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Charles University in Prague, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Higher Functions Lda., Humboldt University in Berlin, University of the Basque Country, University of Groningen and University of Lisbon.
