AMTA 2006

August 8-12, 2006
Preliminary Announcement

AMTA 2006, the 7th biennial conference of the Association for Machine
Translation in the Americas, will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts,
across the Charles River from Boston, and right next to MIT
Campus. Cambridge and the Boston area are home to a large number of
active MT and related language technology companies and users.

The founding goal of AMTA was to bring together researchers,
developers and users (a group that includes sponsors, evaluators, and
observers of MT). AMTA 2006 seeks to maintain the high quality
technical content that has become a hallmark of AMTA events, while
significantly increasing participation by users and prospective users
of translation technology. This event will include presentations and
panels including current users, as well as reaching out to the
upcoming user community at translation and business schools. We would
particularly like to encourage dialog among the three groups. This
will give users and future users an opportunity to learn about what is
in the pipeline in research and development, as well as giving
researchers and developers a chance to hear the interests, concerns
and desires of users.

Research and Deployment Showcase
================================
We will repeat and expand the highly successful "showcase" of deployed
MT systems and research prototypes deployments started with AMTA
2004.

Related events
===========
As usual, this conference will include a day of pre-conference
tutorials (Tuesday, August 8) aimed at making the conference
presentations more accessible and giving participants a chance to
boost their knowledge outside of their specialty. Special interest
groups will organize full day hands-on workshops after the main
conference (Saturday, August 12).

For more information, please contact Laurie Gerber, Conference General
Chair <president@amtaweb.org>. Website, submission, and other
information available soon!
