Copenhagen, Denmark.
 
    Tutorials will take place on 10 September; workshops on either 10 September or 11 September.
 
I. Tutorial proposals
 
Tutorial subjects can cover technological, practical and educational issues in 
Machine Translation.  The tutorial organizers will be responsible for advertising the tutorial, and 
guaranteeing a high quality MT-relevant training, worthy of the prestige and range of the conference.

Proposals for workshops are invited for one-day workshops which focus on specific problem areas of machine 
translation and to advance the state of the art in these areas. Particularly welcome will be workshops that 
bring together researchers and practitioners to share research results and practical development experiences 
in relevant fields. Issues on teaching machine translation to different groups of students (computer 
scientists, linguists, translators, language administrators, language learners, etc.) can be of special interest.
 
The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, reviewing and selecting the papers,

sure that each submitted paper will receive at least two reviews.
