Deep Machine Translation Workshop 2016, Lisbon
The Deep Machine Translation Workshop (DMTW), organized by the QTLeap Project, took place at the University of Lisbon, on October 21, 2016.
The DMTW goal was to bring together researchers and students working on machine translation approaches and technology using “deep understanding”.
Workshop on Deep Language Processing for Quality Machine Translation (DeepLP4QMT)
On 10 September 2016, the QTLeap team organized the Workshop on Deep Language Processing for Quality Machine Translation (DeepLP4QMT) in conjunction with AIMSA conference, Varna, Bulgaria.
Invited talks were given by: Francis Bond (Nanyang Technological University) and Josef van Genabith (DFKI).
The workshop enjoyed big interest also from non-project members.
PROPOR-International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese
PROPOR2016 organized and supported by the QTLeap project.
PROPOR – International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese is the main scientific meeting in the area of language and speech technologies for the Portuguese language and on the basic and applied research issues related to this language.
The 12th edition of the PROPOR Conferences took place in Tomar, Portugal, 13-15 July 2016.
Workshop on Corpora and Tools for Processing Corpora
Co-organized by QTLeap project
Follow up of the ELRC Lisbon Workshop
It was a very successful workshop highly participated with presentations on language resources suitable to support statistical machine translation from/into Portuguese and on processing tools for their preparation.
The workshop also contributed to exchange ideas and disseminate best practices that help to foster the ELRC and CEF.AT initiatives.
QTLeap Project organises the META-FORUM in Lisbon
The organization of META-FORUM 2016 was supported by the University of Lisbon, under the responsibility of António Branco, and by the QTLeap project.
