EMOOCs 2017, the 5th European MOOCs Stakeholders Summit, will be held on 2226 May 2017 in Leganés (Spain). Organized by the Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M), the event aims to be an opportunity to gather worldwide actors involved in the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) phenomenon, from policy makers to practitioners and researchers. The conference will include five tracks (Experience Track, Research Track, Policy Track, Business Track, and Spanish Track) and several Workshops. EMOOCs 2017 will be co-located with the OPENedX conference 2017.

The MLLP’s Gonçal Garcés Díaz-Munío will participate in the Business Track session “Automated translation” (Tuesday 23 May, at 10:30) with a presentation on “Integrating automatic subtitling and translation into MOOCs with poliTrans”. In this presentation, we will show the MLLP’s experience and proposals as a provider of subtitling technology support for different organizations (including the new UPV poliTrans service for automatic multilingual subtitling), along with the most recent advances in the fields of speech recognition (ASR), machine translation (MT) and text-to-speech synthesis (TTS) using deep neural networks for multilingual subtitling, text translation and accessibility. Our experience in several European projects (transLectures, EMMA) and technology transfer contracts will allow us to show these advances within the context of actual application experiences with the educational community and with user evaluations.
