The 13th China Workshop on Machine Translation (CWMT 2017), organized by the Chinese Information Processing Society of China, will be held at Dalian University, China, on September 27-29, 2017. The successive twelve workshops were successfully held by various institutes and universities. Among these, several activities and shared tasks were successfully organized, such as the Machine Translation Evaluation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015), and strategic planning meetings (2010, 2012) as well. CWMT plays an important role in strengthening and promoting the research and development of Machine Translation (MT) in China, it becomes a leading academic activity in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP).

The CWMT aims at providing a forum to facilitate communication and academic exchanges among domestic and foreign scholars on the latest developments in the field of MT. CWMT 2017 features keynote speeches to be delivered by renowned experts in the field of MT; MT evaluation campaigns focusing on languages between Chinese and English/Mongolian/Tibetan/Uyghur/Japanese translations; MT Panel and MT in Practice to explore the leading edge technologies and applications in MT; and a best paper award to be distributed during the conference. An exhibition of commercial and research systems will be held during the conference to bring together the users, developers and researchers of MT. This conference will offer them a great opportunity to share and exchange valuable experiences on MT, and thus advance MT research and development in the region.

For the first time, this conference will add a new forum for research and production of machine translationM, which will invite exprts of academics, industry and investment to discuss machine translation together. The forum is scheduled to be held on the first day after the main meeting (29th). Conference reports and purpose reports will be given in the morning, and panel free communication is in the afternoon.
