Free/Open-source Rule-based Machine Translation
Gothenburg, Sweden, 13-15 June 2012

This workshop aims to bring together the experience of researchers and developers in the field of rule-based machine translation who have decided to get on board the free/open-source train and are effectively contributing to creating a commons of explicit knowledge: machine translation rules and dictionaries, and machine translation systems whose behaviour is transparent and clearly traceable through their explicit logic. Also hybrid systems combining rule-based and statistical methods are in scope.

Programme Committee chair: Aarne Ranta
Organizing Committee Chair: Olga Caprotti

Invited speaker: Martin Kay (Stanford University and Saarland University), The New Machine Translation - Getting blood from a stone
