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.
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.
It will be a half- or full-day workshop, with three sessions:
* The first session will aim at giving a critical analysis of the
* 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.
The primary audience consists of people with an analytical or future
oriented, programmatic interest, both from research and from industry.
