[Apologies for multiple posting] Third Call for Papers: **** SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED to FEBRUARY 25, 2011 **** EAMT 2011 THE 15TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR MACHINE TRANSLATION Faculty of Arts, Erasmushuis Leuven, Belgium, May 30-31, 2011 http://www.eamt2011.eu The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) is pleased to announce that the 15th Annual Conference of the European Association for Machine Translation will be held in Leuven, Belgium, May 30-31 2011. The venue of the conference is the Faculty of Arts of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The EAMT cordially invites everyone interested in machine translation and translation-related tools and resources to participate in this conference - developers, researchers, users, professional translators, managers, marketing experts: anyone who has a stake in the vision of an information world in which language issues become transparent to the information consumer. We especially invite users from government and the translation industry to share their experiences, researchers to describe the state of the art and show their cutting-edge results, developers to describe what is happening in the Internet marketplace, researchers looking to new capabilities, and visionaries to describe the future. During the conference there will be sessions including research papers, reports on users' experiences and invited talks. This will allow participants from research, business and government to get together to explore how to use machine translation technology to conquer language barriers and overcome the digital divide. SCOPE We expect to receive full papers in these two categories: (R) Research papers: Submissions are invited for reports of significant research results in any aspect of machine translation and related areas. Such reports should include a substantial evaluation component. Contributions are welcome on all topics in the area of Machine Translation or translation-related technologies including: * MT methodologies and techniques * Speech translation: speech to text, speech to speech * Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.) * Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools for lexica, etc.) * Practical MT systems (MT for professionals, MT for multilingual eCommerce, MT for localization, etc.) * Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools for lexica, etc.) * MT in multilingual public service (eGovernment etc.) * MT for the web * MT embedded in other services * MT evaluation techniques and evaluation results * Dictionaries and lexica for MT * Text and speech corpora for MT * Standards in text and lexicon encoding for MT * Human factors in MT and user interfaces * Related multilingual technologies (natural language generation, information retrieval, text categorization, text summarization, information extraction, etc.) (U) User studies: Submissions are invited for reports on users' experiences with MT, in business, government, or NGOs. Contributions are welcome on: * Use of MT to provide localization of data-driven, dynamic, or user-specific information * Use of MT to reduce localization effort (time, cost) * Use of MT in collaborative projects and social networking * Ways in which MT can be used to increase the scope of globalization projects * Managing change when implementing MT systems. Challenges (IT, personnel, implementation) * Integrating MT and computer-assisted translation into a translation production workflow * Implementing open-source MT in the corporation: challenges when taking pilot results into full deployment (support, resources, infrastructure, advance customisation, system maintenance) * Evaluation of MT in a real-world setting: metrics. * Post-editing strategies: guidelines/support for translators/LSP's * Portability of MT systems across languages and domains Papers should highlight problems and solutions and not merely describe MT integration process or project settings. PROGRAMME The two-day programme will include invited talks, oral presentations and poster sessions. Accepted papers may be assigned to an oral or poster session, but no differences will be made in the conference proceedings.

SUBMISSIONS Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete evaluation results should be included. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance to the conference, and interest to the attendees. Submissions presented at the EAMT-2011 conference should mostly contain new material that has not been presented at any other meeting with publicly available proceedings. Papers that are being submitted in parallel to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with previously published work. EAMT 2011 will use electronic submission through the EasyChair conference tool. To submit a research paper, go to the submission website at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eamt2011 and follow the instructions. See "Important dates" for the final submission deadline. Submissions should be anonymised (no authors, affiliations or addresses, and no explicit self-reference), be no longer than eight (8) pages (A4 size), and in PDF format. Initial versions of papers must conform to the format defined by the EAMT templates available at the conference website (http://www.eamt2011.eu) If you encounter any problem regarding submission, please do not hesitate to contact the programme co-chairs. For all other queries (e.g. visas, accommodation, payments) please contact the local organisers. CONFERENCE ORGANISERS Programme Co-chairs Research programme chair: Mikel L.
