Yet another deadline extension! Final Call for Workshop Contributions Analytical, critical and visionary papers wanted about all aspects of spoken and written Machine Translation: Where do we stand, where do we go?! We need more papers and wider coverage! Submission deadline extended to May 13 MT 2010 -- Towards a Road Map for MT September 18, 2001 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 is 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. Scope: Papers are invited that * give critical analyses of the present state of the art in machine translation of written and spoken language, * present visions of the future of machine translation, both from a technological and from an application point of view, or * identify major milestones and challenges on our way towards the future, and/or ways to measure our progress along the road. Format: It will be a half- or full-day workshop, with three sessions: * The first session will aim at giving a critical analysis of the present situation. * The second session will be dedicated to visions of the future. * The third session will aim at establishing intermediate milestones (e.g. timelines, necessary research achievements), methods to evaluate progress along the road, and training requirements to be met in order to reach our goals. Audience: The primary audience consists of people with an analytical or future oriented, programmatic interest, both from research and from industry. Workshop schedule: * 13 May 2001: Submission deadline * 31 May 2001: Notification of acceptance * 15 July: Submission of final versions Submission details: Papers should be sent in electronic form to steven.krauwer_(on)_elsnet.org.
