The 7th Machine Translation Marathon

The 7th Machine Translation Marathon

MosesCore is an EU Project which aims at promoting open source machine translation. The MosesCore consortium is sponsoring the Machine Translation Marathon 2012 which will take place from next Monday 3rd September at the University of Edinburgh through Saturday 8th September 2012.  The MT Marathon is one of the most renown venues where researchers, developers, students and MT practitioners meet and share experiences. The published results are often a source of innovation and research among the increasingly avid MT community, both in academia and in commercial circles. The Machine Translation Marathon takes places annually and at different European Universities involved in (open source) machine translation development. For example, the last 6th Machine Translation Marathon took place in Trento, Italy, at the Fondazine Bruno Kessler (FBK) in September 2011 and it was promoted by the Moses EU programmes EuroMatrix and EuroMatrixplus. The 1st MT Marathon also took place at the University of Edinburgh several years ago, at the start of the EuroMatrix project. The 7th edition comes back to Edinburgh and is organized by the Statistical MT group of the School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh.   There are several ways you can participate in the MT Marathon:

  • by attending lectures and labs: these range from beginners tutorials to showcase talks by leading researchers. Everybody attending can learn or strengthen their knowledge!
  • by attending technical talks about open-source tools for MT
  • by taking part in open source MT hacking projects, led by experienced developers and researchers.
