[eu_members at aclweb dot org] Hawaii: AMTA 2008 -- Call for Registration

Come see the state of the art in machine translation at AMTA 2008! 

The Eighth Conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas will be at the Hilton Prince Kuhio in Waikiki, Hawai'i, from October 21 to 25.  

Register now!  Take advantage of the low early registration rates, which end on September 14. 
Go to  http://www.amtaweb.org/AMTA2008registration.html to register.

This year we'll have almost 2.5 times more papers and presentations than before!   
The full program is at:  http://www.amtaweb.org/AMTA2008FullProgram.html 

Come to hear about:

- how industry leaders envision new uses of automatic translation;

 - how a wide range of government organizations in the US and Canada use automatic translation now to provide early warning of health, terror and political events;

 - how automatic translation installations help companies such as Intel, HP, Microsoft and Japan Airlines to expand the global reach of their product information  and increase client satisfaction. These presentations will be part of LISA @ AMTA – our joint event with the Localization Industry Standards Association;

- how companies new and old are developing a range of new products to work more closely with human translators and to address more diverse translation problems;

 - how researchers are extending the core technologies to improve translation quality and to cover a much wider range of languages than ever before;

- how a new generation of student researchers are pushing translation technology ahead, at a special symposium funded by the NSF;

- introductory sessions on how automatic translation works and how it fits into different use cases; 

Come to see state-of-the-art translation systems in action at our Technology Showcase.

Come to ask experts and experienced users all the questions that you have about how machine translation can help your organization. 

Come a few days early to see the International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation; 
stay a few days more to see the Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing -- all in the same hotel.
