Call for abstracts (papers and posters)
Final Submission deadline was 13 July 2015
(2nd announcement and Call: 17 June 2015)
(First announcement: 29 April 2015)
The Translating and the Computer (TC) conference has emerged as a leading forum for users, developers and vendors of Translation Technology tools, being a distinctive event for discussing the latest developments. It is an annual meeting where translators, researchers and business people, from translation companies, international organisations, universities and research labs, as well as freelance professionals, exchange ideas and discuss hot topics.
The TC conference takes the form of presentations as well as posters and also features panel discussions and workshops. If you or a colleague have something interesting to contribute, this call invites you to consider submitting an extended abstract of a paper or poster for the TC37 conference. If on the other hand you have a workshop to propose, please provide an abstract (maximum 750 words) describing the topic and an outline of the structure.
ASLING seeks submissions including, but not limited to the following
Contributions are invited on any topic related to the technology used in translation and interpreting, including, but not limited to, CAT tools (Translation Memory (TM) systems, integration of Machine Translation in TM systems), Terminology Management, Machine Translation (training, quality assessment, post-editing, adaptation), Quality Control, Interoperability, Crowd-sourcing, Natural Language Processing and Translation Workflow and Management. Among the other important topics are training (including university translation programmes and the rapidly changing translation industry), resources for translators, tools and resources for interpreters, how to facilitate collaboration between translators and translation companies, and mobile technologies to support translators’ work.

Original unpublished papers and posters on all aspects of translation and interpretation technology are invited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, those listed above. Papers and posters may report (among other things) on research, on commercial translation products or on user experiences. The difference between papers and posters is that while papers are expected to report on more conclusive results, posters can present ongoing and not necessarily completed research, teaching or training activity, practical work, software programs, projects or new developments.
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract (maximum of 750 words) of the paper they would like to present, together with a short 200 word abstract and short biography. Although the extended abstract is limited to 750 words (longer papers will NOT be considered), it should provide sufficient information to allow evaluation of the submission by the programme committee. The short abstracts of accepted papers will be used in online programme and event advertising.
Camera-ready versions of the accepted papers will be published in the conference e-proceedings with an assigned ISBN number, subject to the presenter having duly registered for the conference. Their length should not exceed 5,000 words and 12 pages (plus 3 pages maximum for bibliography and references). Authors whose submission is selected will be informed in due time, and provided links to suitable templates.
Poster proposals are invited in the form of extended poster abstracts not exceeding 500 words. Authors should also submit a shorter 200-word version as well as a short biography for dissemination.
The extended poster abstract, is set to 500 words (longer ones will NOT be considered), to allow authors to provide sufficient information to allow evaluation of the poster submission by the programme committee. The short abstracts of accepted papers will be used in online programme and event advertising.
Camera-ready versions of the accepted posters will be published in the conference e-proceedings with an assigned ISBN number, subject to the presenter having duly registered for the conference. Their length should not exceed 2,000 words and 6 pages (plus 2 pages maximum for bibliography and references). Authors whose poster proposal submission is selected will be informed in due time, and provided links to suitable templates.
