AMTA-2004 - The 6th Biennial Conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas Location: Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA Dates: September 28 - October 2, 2004 http://www.amtaweb.org/AMTA2004/ Theme: From Real Users to Research Introduction: The previous conference in this series (AMTA 2002) took up the theme “From Research to Real Users” which asked participants to explore why the research conducted on machine translation doesn’t seem to be moving to the marketplace. The past two years have seen the beginnings of change in this, as some research groups with data-driven translation systems are commercializing their work, and rule-based machine translation systems are introducing data-driven techniques to the mix in their products. For this conference, we reverse the question, and take as our theme user needs and explore how or whether market requirements are feeding into research programs. Issues to be addressed: · system customizability, memory requirements, and other issues affecting commercial adoption · integration and customization work · general advances in quality (including: inherent limits on achievable quality? and varying quality by application?) · How are people using MT today? The conference will host the following: · Conference papers (five categories of papers): 1. Research papers 2. MT Users Session 3. MT Research and Deployment Showcase 4. Evolution of Machine Translation 5. System Descriptions/Demonstrations · Tutorials · Roundtable/Panel Sessions · Workshops · Product Exhibition
