New Trends in
Translation and Technology

Summer School
3-4 July 2021

NeTTT 2021 is delighted to announce its first ever Summer School on Neural Machine Translation (NMT). The organisation of the NMT summer school was motivated by the significant improvement of translation quality delivered by Neural Machine Translation as compared to its predecessor, Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). An increasing number of Machine Translation (MT) providers and researchers are now focusing their efforts on the development of new NMT systems.

The objective of the NMT summer school is to provide students, academics and practitioners with an overview of the state of the art as well as training through advanced lectures and practical sessions. This summer school will be of immense benefit to those who wish to pursue a career in MT and/or translation technologies. It will especially help those who wish to acquire practical skills on how to develop their own NMT systems and compile the necessary resources.

The NMT summer school will present topics which are at the core of modern NMT, from fundamentals to state-of-the-art practice and evaluation, and as such it will be suitable for advanced learners as well as beginners with little programming skills. The speakers are leading experts in their field who talk with enthusiasm about their subjects.

During the summer school, you will also have time to network and discuss ideas with the speakers, tutors and other attendees.

The preliminary programme for the summer school will be announced soon.

NeTTT 2020 becomes NeTTT 2021

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!


On behalf of NeTTT’2021 chairs,
