NODALI: MT Summit XI 2nd Call for Papers

-- NODALI --

September 10-14, 2007
Copenhagen Business School, Copenhagen

The Eleventh Machine Translation Summit, organized by the European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT), will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, 10-14 September 2007.
      MT Summit XI will bring together scientists, developers and users of machine translation and other tools for multilingual processing. Cutting-edge research and demonstrations from leading academic, business and government organizations will showcase the latest results. During the main conference, MT Summit XI will have numerous sessions including research papers, reports on users' experiences, discussions of policy issues, invited talks and panel discussions. Before the main conference, the program includes two full days of tutorials and workshops. These wide—ranging activities in the machine translation will allow participants from research, business and government to get together to explore how to use machine translation technology to conquer language barriers and overcome the digital divide.
      The EAMT cordially invites you all -- researchers, developers, providers, users, and observers -- to MT Summit XI, to contribute to and witness ongoing efforts in developing and using machine translation technology and tools for translation support.

Conference Schedule
10-11 September 2007    Tutorials and workshops
12-14 September 2007    Papers, panels and exhibition

MT Summit XI seeks original papers about 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.)
* MT methodologies
* Human factors in MT and user interfaces
* Speech  translation
* MT in multilingual public service (eGovernment etc.)
* MT embedded in other services
* MT and related technologies (information retrieval, text categorization, text summarization, information extraction, etc.)
* Multilingual natural language generation
* Dictionaries and lexica for MT
* 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

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 evaluation component.
(P) Poster presentations (with or without Demonstration): Submissions are invited for presentations that are best suited for poster sessions, which are more interactive. Submissions are also invited for reports on the design, implementation, operation and evaluation of operational and prototype systems.
(U) User studies: Submissions are invited for reports on users' experiences with using MT.

All types of papers should include a 100 word abstract, and up to 5 keywords.
MT Summit XI uses electronic submission through the START conference tool.
Guidelines for authors can be found at the conference website. http://mtsummitcph.ku.dk/

Call for Exhibitions
In the tradition of past MT Summits, there will be an exhibition area showcasing commercial products and near- to-market prototypes throughout the conference. Exhibits will not be restricted to machine translation systems and support tools, but include a variety of language- technology-enabled applications.  If you would like to exhibit, please contact exhibition at cst dot dk by April 15, 2007.
