MT Summit VIII, which is the first conference of the century in the premier series of conferences on machine translation, will provide a forum for discussing the prospect of MT and related areas in the coming century. MT Summit VIII will feature an expanded programme including research papers, reports on users' experiences, discussions of policy issues, invited talks, panels, exhibitions, tutorials, and workshops. EAMT invites all who are interested in any aspect of machine translation and tools for translation support - researchers, developers, providers, users, and watchers - to participate in the conference. Conference Schedule 18 September 2001 Workshops 19-21 September 2001 Papers, panels and exhibitions 22 September 2001 Workshops, excursion, panel Papers MT Summit VIII seeks original papers in all aspects of machine translation.

Such reports should include a substantial evaluative component. (P) Poster presentations: Submissions are invited for presentations that are best suited for poster presentation which is a more interactive form. (U) User studies: Submissions are invited for reports on users' experiences with applying MT.

The goal is the imposing 11th century cathedral containing the relics of St James the Great. But the well preserved historical centre of the city offers much more: medieval streets, excellent restaurants, ancient churches, monasteries, palaces, etc. The venue for the conference is the Hostal de los Reyes Católicos, founded in 1499 as a Royal hospital for pilgrims, a magnificent building in the Spanish Renaissance style, and now a hotel (the oldest and one of the most beautiful in the world). Those staying at the Hostal will have a 'once-in-a-lifetime' experience, but there is also accommodation nearby in many other good hotels, all within easy walking distance of the centre and the Hostal. Santiago de Compostela has its own airport with daily direct flights from Barcelona, Madrid, Brussels, and London. ------------------------------------------------- ---------------- Conference Organization General Chair John Hutchins, Univ. of East Anglia, UK Local arrangements Carlos Paz, European Commission, Translation Service Dimitri Theologitis, European Commission, DG TREN Belgium Exhibition Jörg Schütz, IAI, Saarbrücken, Germany Workshops Harold Somers, UMIST, United Kingdom Programme Committee Chairpersons: Bente Maegaard, Center for Sprogteknologi, Denmark Jo Lernout, Lernout and Hauspie Systems, Belgium Members: Harri Arnola, Kielikone, Finland Annelise Bech, Lingtech, Denmark Nuria Bel, Univ.
