2010Q3 Reports: SIGMT
The main activity of the SIG MT was the organization of the 5th Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation, which includes two shared tasks, one for machine translation and one for system combination methods. We had broad participation for both shared tasks and also 24 paper submissions to the workshop, of which we accepted 18.
We were able to co-ordinate this event with NIST's MetricsMATR shared task. NIST is co-sponsoring the workshop and we share resources for the shared tasks.
