    Dr. Ondřej Bojar is a lead scientist in the field of Machine Translation in the Czech Republic. He works as an associate professor at the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics at Charles University. Machine translation has been in the center of his research interests since 2005, early in his Ph.D. studies. He has been regularly participating and since 2013 co-organizing WMT shared tasks with a specific focus on translation into Czech. His system has dominated English-Czech translation in the years 2013-2015, before deep learning and neural networks fundamentally changed the field. Ondřej's main focus now is a little broader and entails machine learning in general with explicit aims towards meaning representation and natural language understanding, including speech processing.

    Dr. Satya Ranjan Dash is a computer professional, with his research interest in machine learning, deep learning with NLP, Computational Biology, and Biomedical domain. He is currently working as an associate professor at KIIT University, India. His current research includes Natural Language Processing, particularly text summarization, topic detection, language detection, machine translation for low resource languages.

    Dr. Shantipriya Parida works as a Post-doctoral researcher at Idiap Research Institute, Switzerland since Feb 2019. His current research includes Natural Language Processing, particularly text summarization, topic detection, language detection, machine translation for Indian languages, multi-modal machine translation, and corpus development for low resource Indian language. Before Idiap, he was working as a Post-doctoral researcher with Prof. Ondřej Bojar at Charles University, Prague working on Machine Translation, and Deep Learning. He has expertise in Machine Learning, AI, Computational Neuroscience, Product Development, System/Solution Architecture. He is an organizing committee member for Workshop on Asian Translation WAT2019 and WAT2020. Along with Prof. Ondřej Bojar organized the WAT2019 Multimodal-Translation Task. He also serves as a program committee member for the LREC 2020 Workshop on Indian Language Data: Resources and Evaluation (WILDRE).

    Dr. Esaú Villatoro holds a tenure position at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana campus Cuajimalpa (UAM-C) in Mexico City. Currently, he is an academic visitor at Idiap Research Institute in Martigny Switzerland. His main research interests are related to Natural Language Processing, particularly authorship analysis, and non-thematic text categorization. He is an active member of several research groups and NLP organizations: the Language and Reasoning research Group at UAM-C, the Laboratory of Language Technologies at the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics, the Mexican Association for Natural Language Processing (AMPLN), the Hispano-American Network for Automatic Human Language Processing (RedHisTAL) and the Mexican Academy of Computer Science (AMEXCOMP).
