NeTTT – New Trends in Translation & Technology
The International Conference New Trends in Translation and Technology (NeTTT’2022) will take place on the island of Rhodes, Greece, 4-6 July 2022.
The conference is organised by the Dimetra Academy for Translators, Greece; the Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting and the Department of Informatics, Ionian University, Greece; the Adapt Centre, Dublin City University, Ireland; the Research Group in Computational Linguistics, University of Wolverhampton, UK; and the Association of Computational Linguistics, Bulgaria.

Prof Ruslan Mitkov (University of Wolverhampton, UK)
The objective of the conference is to bring together academics in linguistics, translation studies, machine translation, translation tools and natural language processing, as well as developers, practitioners, language service providers and vendors who work on or are interested in different aspects of technology for translation. The conference will be a distinctive event for discussing the latest developments and practices in translation and technology. NeTTT’2022 invites all professionals who would like to learn about recent trends, present their latest work, and/or share their experiences in the field; the conference will be an ideal place to establish business and research contacts, collaborations and new ventures.
The conference will feature a research track and an industry track and will take the form of presentations (peer-reviewed research and industry presentations, as well as keynote speeches), and posters. The authors of the accepted abstracts will be offered the opportunity to write up full papers which will be published as open-access conference e-proceedings.
NeTTT’2022 will be preceded by a two-day summer school (2-3 July) on Neural Machine Translation, a Workshop on Translation Technology for Creative Domains (3 July) and a series of Tutorials (7 July).
The conference will take place at Sheraton Rhodes Resort, a hotel and conference centre ideally situated in a key spot in Ixia, just 4 kilometres from the famous Medieval Town of Rhodes – the best preserved medieval city in the world and an UNESCO World Heritage Monument. Sheraton Rhodes Resort encompasses in its grounds and services the very things that Rhodes offers: natural beauty, unique architecture, a variety of entertainment options, modern infrastructure and traditional hospitality.
