EAMT 2011

The 15th Annual Conference of the European Association for Machine

Faculty of Arts, Erasmushuis
Leuven, Belgium, May 30-31, 2011

The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) is pleased to
announce that the 15th Annual Conference of the European Association for
Machine Translation will be held in Leuven, Belgium, May 30-31 2011. The
venue of the conference is the Faculty of Arts of the Katholieke
Universiteit Leuven.

The EAMT cordially invites everyone interested in machine translation and
translation-related tools and resources to participate in this conference -
developers, researchers, users, professional translators, managers,
marketing experts: anyone who has a stake in the vision of an information
world in which language issues become transparent to the information
consumer. We especially invite users from government and the translation
industry to share their experiences, researchers to describe the state of
the art and show their cutting-edge results, developers to describe what is
happening in the Internet marketplace, researchers looking to new
capabilities, and visionaries to describe the future.

During the conference there will be sessions including research papers,
reports on users' experiences and invited talks. This 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.

We expect to receive full papers in these two categories:

(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.
Contributions are welcome on all topics in the area of Machine
Translation or translation-related technologies including:

* MT methodologies and techniques
* Speech translation: speech to text, speech to speech
* Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.)
* Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools
for lexica, etc.)
* Practical MT systems (MT for professionals, MT for multilingual
eCommerce, MT for localization, etc.)
* Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools
for lexica, etc.)
* MT in multilingual public service (eGovernment etc.)
* MT for the web
* MT embedded in other services
* MT evaluation techniques and evaluation results
* Dictionaries and lexica for MT
* Text and speech corpora for MT
* Standards in text and lexicon encoding for MT
* Human factors in MT and user interfaces
* Related multilingual technologies (natural language generation,
information retrieval, text categorization, text summarization,
information extraction, etc.)

(U) User studies: Submissions are invited for reports on users'
experiences with MT, in business, government, or NGOs. Contributions are
welcome on:

* Use of MT to provide localization of data-driven, dynamic, or
user-specific information
* Use of MT to reduce localization effort (time, cost)
* Use of MT in collaborative projects and social networking
* Ways in which MT can be used to increase the scope of globalization
* Managing change when implementing MT systems. Challenges (IT,
personnel, implementation)
* Integrating MT and computer-assisted translation into a translation
production workflow
* Implementing open- source MT in the corporation: challenges when
taking pilot results into full deployment (support, resources,
infrastructure, advance customisation, system maintenance)
* Evaluation of MT in a real-world setting: metrics.
* Post-editing strategies: guidelines/support for translators/LSP^Òs
* Portability of MT systems across languages and domains

Papers should highlight problems and solutions and not merely describe
MT integration process or project settings.

The two-day programme will include invited talks, oral presentations and
poster sessions. Accepted papers may be assigned to an oral or poster
session, but no differences will be made in the conference proceedings.

Important Dates
6 Nov 2010 Initial call for papers

Please visit the conference web pages ( for the most
up-to-date information about the calendar, the call for papers and
formatting requirements, the programme, invited speakers, related conference
activities, the venue, travel and registration.

Papers should describe original work; they should emphasize completed
work rather than intended work, and should indicate clearly the state of
completion of the reported results. Wherever appropriate, concrete
evaluation results should be included. Submissions will be judged on
correctness, originality, technical strength, significance and relevance
to the conference, and interest to the attendees.

Submissions presented at the EAMT-2011 conference should mostly contain
new material that has not been presented at any other meeting with
publicly available proceedings. Papers that are being submitted in
parallel to other conferences or workshops must indicate this on the
title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with
previously published work.

EAMT 2011 will use electronic submission through the EasyChair
conference tool. To submit a research paper, go to the submission website at: and follow the
instructions. See "Important dates" for the final submission deadline.

Submissions should be anonymised (no authors, affiliations or addresses,
and no explicit self-reference), be no longer than eight (8) pages (A4
size), and in PDF format. Initial versions of papers must conform to the
format defined by the EAMT templates available at the conference website

If you encounter any problem regarding submission, please do not
hesitate to contact the programme co-chairs. For all other queries (e.g.
visas, accommodation, payments) please contact the local organisers.
