EAMT 2018 Best Thesis Award

The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT, http://www.eamt.org)
is an organization that serves the growing community of people interested
in MT and translation tools, including users, developers, and researchers
of this increasingly viable technology.

The EAMT invites entries for its fifth EAMT Best Thesis Award for a PhD or
equivalent thesis on a topic related to machine translation.
Eligibility

Researchers who

   -

   have completed a PhD (or equivalent) thesis on a relevant topic in a
   European, Northern African or Middle Eastern institution within
calendar year
   2017 and
   -

   have not previously won another international award for that thesis,


are invited to submit their theses to the EAMT for consideration.
Panel

The submissions will be judged by a panel of experts who will be
specifically appointed as part of the EAMT 2018 programme committee and
which will be ratified by the Executive Board of the EAMT.
Selection criteria

Each thesis will be judged according to how challenging the problem was, to
how relevant the results are for machine translation as a field, and to the
strength of their impact in terms of scientific publications.
Scope

The scope of the thesis need not be confined to a technical area, and
applications are also invited from students who carried out their research
into commercial and management aspects of machine translation.

Possible areas of research include:

   -

   development of machine translation or advanced computer-assisted
   translation: methods, software or resources
   -

   machine translation for less-resourced languages
   -

   the use of these systems in professional environments (freelance
   translators, translation agencies, localisation, etc.)
   -

   the increasing impact of machine translation on non-professional
   Internet users and its impact in communications, social networking, etc.
   -

   spoken language translation
   -

   the integration of machine translation and translation memory systems
   -

   the integration of machine translation software in larger IT applications
   -

   the evaluation of machine translation systems in real tasks such as
   those above
   -

   the cross-fertilisation between machine translation and other language
   technologies

Prize

The winner will be announced at the same time as accepted papers for the
20th Annual Conference of the European Association for Machine Translation
EAMT 2018 (Alicante, Spain, May 28-30, 2018), and will receive a prize of
€500, together with an inscribed certificate. The recipient of the award
will be required to briefly present their research at EAMT 2018. In order
