The two conferences have planned several joint events around common interests.

Our research program includes a diverse slate of 15 presentations and 20 posters. The research program also includes a competitive peer-reviewed "Student Research Workshop" designed to showcase and foster next generation MT researchers. The main AMTA-2010 conference also includes exciting program tracks with several dozen presentations about government and commercial uses of MT in practice.
