MT Summit X will bring together the scientists, developers and users in the area of machine translation and other tools for multilingual processing. The frontier research and demonstration from leading academic institutes, business and government sectors will show the latest results. In the main conference, MT Summit X will provide various features including research papers, reports on users' experiences, discussions of policy issues, invited talks and panel discussions. Surrounding the main conference the expanded program will cover the sessions of tutorial, workshop and exhibition. These wide coverage-features in the machine translation arena will facilitate participants from the sectors of academy, research, business and government to get together to explore the machine translation technology for conquering the problems in language barriers and digital divide. AAMT cordially invites you all to MT Summit X, to contribute and witness the efforts in machine translation technology, in any aspect of machine translation and tools for translation support - researchers, developers, providers, users, and watchers. Conference Schedule 12 September 2005 Tutorials 13-15 September 2005 Papers, panels and exhibitions 16 September 2005 Workshops Papers MT Summit X seeks original papers in all aspects of machine translation. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to: - MT for the Web - Practical MT systems (MT for professionals, MT for multilingual eCommerce, MT for localization, etc.) - Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.) - Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools for lexica etc.) - Methodologies for MT - Human factors in MT and user interfaces - Speech and dialogue translation - Natural language analysis and generation techniques geared towards MT - Dictionaries and lexicons for MT systems - Text and speech corpora for MT and knowledge extraction from corpora - MT evaluation techniques and evaluation results - Standards in text and lexicon encoding for MT - Cross-lingual information retrieval - MT and related technologies (information retrieval, text categorization, text summarization, information extraction, etc.) There will be three categories of papers: (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 evaluative component. (P) Poster presentations (with/without Demonstration): Submissions are invited for presentations that are best suited for poster presentation which is a more interactive form. Submissions are also invited for reports on the design, implementation, operation and evaluation of operational and prototype systems.

Phuket is the largest island of Thailand. It is connected by bridges to southern Thailand and surrounded by 32 smaller islands with a total area of 570 square kilometers. Beaches there offer some of the most spectacular scenery in Thailand, from brilliant white sand beaches and coral islands to sheer limestone cliffs and forested inlets. The conference venue, the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa, is located on the beautiful Karon beach, 45 minutes from Phuket Airport. Set in 75 acres of tropical landscaped gardens the hotel can boast being the largest five star resort on the island. Each of the resort's 695 rooms are decorated in modern Thai style accentuating all of the comforts of home, while including all of the luxury that you would expect from a five star resort. Each of the rooms has their own balcony with a view of either Karon Bay or our beautifully landscaped gardens. ======================================================================= _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_mailman.elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
