In its effort to promote and foster the professional growth of the next
generation of MT researchers, AMTA 2008 will feature a new "MT Student
Research Workshop", which will be embedded as an integral part of the research
program at the conference.  Students at all levels of study (undergraduate,
graduate and post-graduate) are invited to submit papers describing their
research work. To qualify, the main author of the paper must be a student or a
post-doc. Both completed work as well as work in progress is eligible for
submission.  Submissions will be competitively reviewed by a committee
consisting of both advanced MT students and researchers, in a process similar
to the reviewing of submissions to the main AMTA-2008 research program.

Financial support is being provided by the US National Science Foundation
(NSF) to subsidize participation costs for all students that have a paper
accepted for presentation at the workshop.  We anticipate awards of about
$1200-1500 per student, which should cover a large portion if not all
participation costs for attending the AMTA 2008 conference.

Topics

All topics related to MT research are welcome. See the list of topics for the
MT Research Program for a listing of sample topics of interest.  

What to submit

Papers should not be longer than 10 pages, formatted using the provided style
for research papers, and in pdf format.  

How to submit

AMTA 2008 is using the START conference management system.  To submit a paper
to the Student Research Workshop, go to the submission website at:

https://www.softconf.com/starts/amta08/submit.html

and follow the instructions on the web page.

Important: please make sure to select "Student Workshop Paper" as the
Submission Category for the paper.  The final submission deadline for papers
is Thursday, July 3 [11:59pm EDT (GMT-4:00)].

Dual Submission Policy:

Papers submitted to the AMTA-2008 Student Workshop may be submitted in
parallel to other conferences or workshops, but these must be listed clearly
in the space provided on the submission web page.  If accepted for publication
elsewhere, authors must withdraw the paper from one of the two venues and
notify the workshop contacts as soon as possible.
