AMTA 2006 Boston Marriott, Cambridge (http://marriott.com/property/propertypage/BOSCB), Massachusetts, USA August 8-12, 2006 Preliminary Announcement AMTA 2006, the 7th biennial conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas, will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, across the Charles River from Boston, and right next to MIT Campus. Cambridge and the Boston area are home to a large number of active MT and related language technology companies and users. The founding goal of AMTA was to bring together researchers, developers and users (a group that includes sponsors, evaluators, and observers of MT). AMTA 2006 seeks to maintain the high quality technical content that has become a hallmark of AMTA events, while significantly increasing participation by users and prospective users of translation technology. This event will include presentations and panels including current users, as well as reaching out to the upcoming user community at translation and business schools. We would particularly like to encourage dialog among the three groups. This will give users and future users an opportunity to learn about what is in the pipeline in research and development, as well as giving researchers and developers a chance to hear the interests, concerns and desires of users. Research and Deployment Showcase ================================ We will repeat and expand the highly successful "showcase" of deployed MT systems and research prototypes deployments started with AMTA 2004. Related events =========== As usual, this conference will include a day of pre-conference tutorials (Tuesday, August 8) aimed at making the conference presentations more accessible and giving participants a chance to boost their knowledge outside of their specialty. Special interest groups will organize full day hands-on workshops after the main conference (Saturday, August 12). For more information, please contact Laurie Gerber, Conference General Chair <president_(on)_amtaweb.org>. Website, submission, and other information available soon! _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
