MT Marathon

Organized by TartuNLP, Institute of Computer Science, University of Tartu, the 16th Machine Translation Marathon 2023 is a week-long gathering of machine translation researchers, developers, students and users. It features:

  • MT Lectures and Labs covering the basics and tutorials.
  • Keynote Talks from experienced researchers and practitioners.
  • Presentations of research and open-source tools related to MT.
  • Hacking Projects to advance tools or research in one week or start new collaborations.

    The MT Marathon will host an open session with poster presentations related to MT research and open-source tools. We invite students, developers and researchers to submit short abstracts (1 page) featuring previously published results, open-source tool demos, and work in progress. Abstracts are lightly reviewed for topical scope, and all relevant submissions will be accepted for presentation.
