New Trends in
Translation and Technology

Rhodes Island, Greece,

Dear friends and colleagues!

Καλώς ορίσατε!

We are delighted to announce the first New Trends in Translation and Technology (NeTTT) conference which will take place at the Sheraton Hotel in Rhodes, Greece, from July 5 to July 7, 2021.
The conference will be preceded by a
two-day summer school in Neural Machine Translation.

Important Dates

Summer School: 3-4 July 2021
Conference: 5-7 July 2021

The aim of the conference is to bring together academics in linguistics, translation studies, machine translation and natural language processing, as well as developers, practitioners, language service providers (LSPs) and vendors who work on or are interested in various aspects of technology for translation. The conference will be a distinctive and interdisciplinary event for discussing the latest developments and practices in translation technology. NeTTT has been received with great enthusiasm from academia and industry alike, attracting renowned invited speakers and sponsors.

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. The chairs of the conference are:

Dr Sheila Castilho (Dublin City University, Ireland)

In addition, the chairs are assisted by a Programme Committee consisting of a number of leading academics and professionals in the area.

NeTTT is addressed to all academics, practitioners and industry specialists who would like to learn about recent trends, present their latest work, and/or share their experiences in the field. The conference is also going to be an ideal place to establish business and research contacts, collaborations and new ventures. The conference will take the form of presentations (peer-reviewed research and user presentations, keynote speeches), demos (from sponsors) and posters; it will also feature panel discussions and tutorials/workshops. The presentations will be published as open-access conference e-proceedings.

New Dates!

Dear colleagues,

Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent travel restrictions and with a view to protecting the health and well-being of our delegates, speakers and sponsors, we have taken the decision to postpone the NeTTT conference until July 2021.  

Although we reached that decision with a heavy heart, we are still excited about our event and we hope to welcome you all on the magical island of Rhodes in July 2021.


The new dates are the following: 

3-4 July 2021: Summer School on Neural Machine Translation

5-7 July 2021: NeTTT’2021 Conference


In addition, under the current circumstances we have decided to extend the call for abstracts and papers deadlines as follows: 

• Submission deadline 1 (extended abstracts for proposals for oral or poster presentations): 15 April 2021

• Notification of acceptance of abstracts: 15 May 2021

• Full paper submission (optional: full-lengh papers for publication in the e-proceedings): 20 June 2021


What if you have already submitted an abstract? 

Your submission will be valid and will be reviewed as per the new dates. If you wish to make any changes, you can do so until the new submission date (15 April 2021)


What if you have already made travel arrangements? 

If you have already made travel arrangements, you will most probably be able to change your tickets and change your hotel reservation. If, however, you need a letter from us, please contact us at


We apologise for any inconvenience this postponement may cause you, but we feel that it is necessary for the health and well-being of our community. 

We look forward to seeing you early July 2021.

Until then, stay safe and dream on!
