Is this the time for TMX 2.0? If you are a stakeholder in the TMX community heavily relying on TMX 1.4b, we want to hear your feature wishlist.
TMX related submissions can be proposed on the FEISGILTT EasyChair

Standard submissions can be made for TMX use cases or proposals for TMX 2.0 data model.
If you wish to enter as a TMX stakeholder, panelist, facilitator, do use the same EasyChair form, use as topic “Enter as a TMX stakeholder/panelist/facilitator” and instead of abstract provide your position statement for the TMX panel and if you wish to participate as panelist or facilitator.
The program committee will select the panel based on those submissions and selected panelists/facilitators will receive speaker discount for the event registration.
You can also enter as a “stakeholder”, not pursuing appointment as a panelist or facilitator, in such case we may still invite you as a panelist or facilitator but most likely your position statement will be used to inform the panel design and you will be cordially invited to participate as engaged audience in the TMX panel.

We have introduced the following active participation formats:

  • Academic Paper
  • Interoperability Showcase (demo)
  • Case Study
  • Panel Discussion
  • Poster

See detailed submission requirements below.

If you are interested in the above topics and have knowledge and experience to share with your peers, potential and existing clients, suppliers, and other industry experts, please save the dates and submit a proposal for active participation at the 7th XLIFF Symposium.

Please submit your proposals here:

There is only one public link for the whole FEISGILTT conference. Also we manage all submissions in a single track on EasyChair due to licensing restrictions.

These submission requirements are the same for all tracks of FEISGILTT 2015.

All submissions will be judged based on abstracts only in the first round. Submitting full papers for proceedings is optional. Attachments are optional at this stage.

We have introduced the following active participation formats:

Academic Paper

Use this category in case you want to orally present findings of a relevant academic paper.Successful authors will be invited to orally present or to submit a poster. Successful authors will also be invited to provide long (typically 8 pages excluding references, let us know in advance should you need more) or short (4 pages including references) papers for proceedings. Paper submissions will be judged based on abstracts, uploading a full paper is facultative and you will be given a deadline for proceedings in due course. Papers at the initial submission stage should do not need to be specifically formatted. The only formal requirement is to use citations and references in the Harvard format ( If you published or presented the paper before, you should say so in the submission and you are also responsible for securing previous publisher’s consent in case your paper is accepted for presentation/publication at FEISGILTT 2015. At the proceedings publication deadline, formatting and length restriction guidelines will be enforced.


Interoperability Showcase (demo)

Use this category in case you want to present a live demo of a relevant product or solution. Live demo is an obligatory part of this category presentation. Presented systems can be mature prototypes or products. Marketing statements are strongly discouraged. Presenter should be able to explain and demonstrate at the technical level, why and that the presented solution is relevant for the conference. Cooperations of multiple subjects demonstrating interoperability based on multiple open standards are encouraged. Showcase demo presenters should state upfront if they also want to publish an informative paper in the proceedings in case of acceptance. Short and long papers published along with demos will need to fulfill the same publishing requirements as Academic papers (see above). Publishing a paper with a demo is encouraged but by no means a requirement.


Case Study

Use this category in case you want to give a presentation of an industry application of open standards, successful or “lessons learnt” :-).This category won’t be judged with academic rigor. You may want to present a short demo, as well, but it is not a requirement. Cooperations of multiple subjects demonstrating interoperability based on multiple open standards are encouraged. If you want to publish a paper in proceedings, you should NOT choose this category of submission. Informative publication of slides is possible and encouraged.


Panel Discussion

Use this category if you want to organize a high impact panel on an important issue. Proposer should have secured participation of all proposed panelists in case of acceptance. Program committees may make panel counter-proposals based on your ideas or independently.



Use this category, in case your research, demo, or case study is not suitable for oral presentation. You may be invited to publish a short or long paper based on your Poster proposal. In your poster proposal you should state if you are interested in short or long paper publishing in proceedings. Publishing a (short) paper is encouraged, but by no means a requirement for this category.
