Call For Papers

ASLIB - Call for Papers
Translating and the Computer 32 Conference

Supported by BCS NLTSG, EAMT, ITI, TILP


Abstract deadline extended to 15th July 2010!

The Conference will take place on 18-19 November 2010 at De Vere West One,
near Oxford Circus, London

This will be the thirty-second conference in the series. This event draws
together a diverse group of delegates, who gain new insights and brainstorm
ideas on the use of information technology for translation. In general, the
areas looked at are:
* language resources exchange
* tools, technologies and standards
* web-based collaboration models
* translation process control

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at the
conference. Talks are slanted towards a practitioner's point of view, even
when dealing with the latest product developments and theoretical
research. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the user
aspects of translation or translation-related software. Presentations
accompanied by demonstrations are especially welcome. A list of possible
topics appears below.

The conference is a meeting point for translation professionals from:
* large international and multilateral institutions such as those of
the European Union and the United Nations System
* translation agencies across the world
* professional translators
* tools and technology developers
* researchers and academics
