2012Q3 Reports: SIGMT
The SIG currently has 112 members and it still operated under the founding officers.
The main activity of the SIG MT was the organization of the 7th Workshop on Statistical Machine Translation, which includes three shared tasks, one for machine translation, one for evaluation metrics, and a new task for quality estimation methods. This year we have received 45 full paper submissions and 39 shared task submissions. In total WMT-2012 featured 20 full paper oral presentations and 39 shared task poster presentations.
The second workshop organized under the umbrella of SIG MT is the 6th Workshop on Syntax, Semantics and Structure in Statistical Translation, which will take place in July in association with the ACL conference.
