Submission deadline: July 30, 2015 (extended)
Date: September 15, 2015
Location: Alicante, Spain

The TweetMT workshop will deal with the linguistic processing of tweets and short texts in tasks related to machine translation, cross-lingual and multilingual processing. It will bring together researchers within the broad scope of using natural language processing techniques for processing tweets in different languages, with the aim of discussing tasks required for and depending on the development of machine translation tools for short texts.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Machine translation approaches for short and informal texts.
* Development and annotation of Twitter corpora for machine translation.
* Evaluation of machine translation of tweets.
* Language identification of tweets.
* Normalization of user-generated content.
* Language-specific tweet collection techniques.
* Cross-lingual tweet clustering and classification.
* Cross-lingual tweet retrieval.
* Multilingual event summarization from tweets.
* Multilingual tweet sentiment analysis.
