MT2010 Roadmap Workshop
MT 2010 -- Towards a Road Map for MT
September 18, 2001, Afternoon (14:00 - 18:00)
Workshop organised by ELSNET
and hosted by MT Summit VIII
Santiago de Compostela, Spain
September 18-22 2001
Aim and context:
The aim of the workshop was to contribute to ELSNET's ongoing action to establish a road map for MT for the next decade. A road map comprises an analysis of the present situation, a vision of where we want to be in ten years from now, and a number
of intermediate milestones that would help in setting intermediate goals and in measuring our progress towards our goals. The function of the road map is not to impose anything on anyone, but rather to provide a broadly supported definition of a
context in which to position the MT community's efforts, which would allow us to identify common priorities for joint activities in e.g. research, resources and training.
Presentations were limited to 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for discussion. Please note that this was a workshop, not a mini-conference, and that participants were expected to play an active role: all participants were requested to help
identifying the Big MT Challenges that lie ahead of us, and the conditions that have to be met in order to get there. All participants have received a paper form to express their views. Completed forms must be returned
to the organisers at the end of the workshop, or submitted electronically before the end of October 2001.
The results will be published here.
The primary target audience consisted of people with an analytical or future oriented, programmatic interest, both from research and from industry.
