2nd Workshop on Semantics-Driven Machine Translation (SedMT)

Eneko AGIRRE and Nora ARANBERRI, Ixa Group from University of the Basque Country,  together with Deyi Xiong (Soochow University), Kevin Duh (Johns Hopkins University), and HoufengWang (Peking University), are the organizers of the 2nd Workshop on Semantics-Driven Machine Translation (SedMT)  San Diego, California, USA; June 16, 2016 (co-located with NAACL).

This workshop seeks to build on the success of its precursor S2MT 2015, which was held in conjunction with ACL 2015 in Beijing. This workshop will continue efforts of promoting the shift of interest from syntax to semantics in machine translation, exploring new horizons and cultivating ideas of cutting-edge models and algorithms for semantic machine translation.
