AMTA-2012, the tenth Biennial Conference of the Association for
Machine Translation in the Americas, will be held at the
Catamaran Resort Hotel in San Diego California, from Sunday,
October 28 through Thursday, November 1. It will immediately
follow the 53st Annual Conference of the American Translators
Association (ATA), also in San Diego, October 24-27. Following
our very successful first collocation two years ago in Denver,
AMTA is happy to further our collaboration with the ATA. Machine
Translation technology is becoming a broadly-adopted technology
within the commercial translation industry, and this trend has
accelerated further over the past two years. The two conferences
have coordinated program content around common topics of
interests. Our goal has been to put together a conference program
that can help MT researchers and developers better understand the
needs of translators and of the commercial translation industry,
as well as to help translation professionals improve their
understanding of modern MT technology and the growing role of
advanced translation automation within the commercial translation

We have assembled an exciting, diverse, and well-rounded program.
Day 1 features keynote presentations by ATA President-Elect
Caitilin Walsh and by Luis von Ahn - the well-known research
expert on crowd-sourcing and the founder of Duolingo. The second
day of our main conference will focus on the growing commercial
adoption of MT technology. It will feature a keynote presentation
by Don DePalma, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Common
Sense Advisory - the prominant business analysis firm of the
language services industry. Don's keynote, titled "Trends in
Adoption of MT as a Globalization Technology" will provide an
in-depth look at the factors driving the adoption of MT
technology within the industry. This will be followed by a
plenary panel on the topic, featuring key representatives from
enterprises and service providers that have invested in advanced
MT technology. Day 3 focuses on MT research. It features a
keynote talk by Bonnie Dorr, Past President of the Association
for Computational Linguistics (ACL), who currently directs
DARPA's main research programs in human language technology. A
second research keynote will be presented by the leaders of this
year's Johns Hopkins Summer Workshop on Domain Adaptation for
Machine Translation.

Our research program for AMTA 2012 includes a diverse slate of 18
presentations and 11 posters. The conference also includes
exciting program tracks with several dozen presentations about
government and commercial uses of MT in practice. And don't miss
our MT Technology Showcase - our popular exposition of MT
technology exhibits and demonstrations, which is free and open to
the public. The full program is now available on the conference
website at: http://amta2010.amtaweb.org/

We scheduled in-depth tutorials and workshops on special topics
of interest both before and after the main conference. The six
different tutorials cover a range of introductory and advanced
topics, such as Using MT in Today's CAT Tools and Practical
Domain Adaptation in SMT. The three scheduled workshops focus on
advanced topics including MT Post-Editing Technology and
Practice, monolingual methods in support of MT, and Computational
Approaches to Arabic-script-based Languages. For full details,
please see the conference website: http://amta2010.amtaweb.org/

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!!

Alon Lavie AMTA-2012 General Chair President, Association for
Machine Translation in the Americas (AMTA)
