2nd Call for Tutorial Proposals

Note: although we have extended the deadline for paper submissions, the deadline for tutorial proposals remains at 3 March 2023. This deadline is necessary for our proposal review processes. Information on the full timeline is given here.

Submission Deadline: 3 March 2023 10 February 2023
Tutorial date: 15 June 2023


The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) invites proposals for tutorials to be held in conjunction with the EAMT 2023 conference taking place in Tampere, from 12 to 14 June with tutorials held on 15 June. We seek proposals in all areas of machine translation (see the call for papers of the main conference for the focus areas of EAMT 2023).

The aim of a tutorial is primarily to help the audience to develop understanding of particular technical, applied, and business matters related to research, development, and use of MT and translation technology.

Presentations of particular technological solutions or systems are welcome, provided that they serve as illustrations of broader scientific considerations.

We recommend that the tutorial covers work by the presenters as well as by other researchers. The submission should explain that this breadth is ensured. Tutorials should not be “self-invited talks”.

Submission Details

Proposals should not exceed 4 pages of content (plus unlimited pages for references), should be in PDF format, and should contain the following:

  • A title and authors, affiliations, and contact information.
  • A brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance to the machine translation community.
  • Short description of the target audience and any expected prerequisite background the audience should be aware of.
  • An outline of the tutorial structure content and how it will be covered in a three-hour slot (half-day). In exceptional cases six-hour tutorial slots (full day) are available. These time limits do not include coffee breaks, e.g., a three-hour tutorial in fact occupies a 3.5-hour slot, and a six-hour tutorial occupies a 7-hour slot.
  • Diversity considerations, e.g. use of multilingual data, indications of how the described methods scale up to various languages or domains, participation of both senior and junior instructors, demographic and geographical diversity of the instructors, plans for how to diversify audience participation, etc.
  • Reading list. Work that you expect the audience to read before the tutorial can be indicated by an asterisk. Recommended papers should provide breadth of authorship and include work by other authors, and work from other disciplines is welcome if relevant.
  • For each tutorial presenter, a one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of expertise for the tutorial topic, as well as experience in instructing an international audience.
    An estimate of the audience size for the tutorial. If the same or a similar tutorial has been given before, include information on where any previous version of the tutorial was given and how many attendees the tutorial attracted.
  • A description of special requirements for technical equipment.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted as PDF files to the EasyChair EAMT 2023 page (submission type: EAMT2023 Tutorials).

Submissions should be formatted according to the templates specified below. Anonymisation is not required. Submissions should be no longer than 4 pages (excluding references).

Evaluation Criteria

Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated according to its clarity and preparedness, novelty or timely character of the topic, and instructors’ experience.

Tutorial Instructor Responsibilities

Accepted tutorial presenters will be notified by 17 March 2023. They must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the conference registration material by the specific conference deadlines. The description should be in two formats: (a) an ASCII version that can be included in email announcements and published on the conference website, and (b) a PDF version for inclusion in the electronic proceedings (detailed instructions will be provided). Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial materials by 15 May 2023. The final submitted tutorial materials must minimally include copies of the course slides and a bibliography for the material covered in the tutorial.

For each tutorial being held at EAMT 2023, we offer free registration to the conference for one tutorialist.
