EAMT 2012

The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) is pleased to announce that the 16th Annual Conference of the European Association for Machine Translation will be held on 28-30 May 2012, in Trento (Italy).

The venue of the conference is the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), at the Center for Scientific and Technological Research.

The EAMT 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 demonstrate their cutting-edge results, researchers and developers looking towards new capabilities, and visionaries to describe the future.

What is new?

  • EAMT is growing, receiving more and more submissions every year. In order to keep to the single track format -- which makes EAMT events very inclusive in nature -- we are extending the duration of the conference from 2 to 2 ½ days.
  • In order to particularly encourage submissions for the users’ track, we have created a new submission type: short papers for oral/poster presentation: 2-4 pages.
  • In order to encourage participation from developers/industry, we have introduced a technology showcase, where people can demonstrate their products. Submissions for this track require just a 1-page abstract.

The submission deadline for research papers or short user studies and project descriptions is 22 February 2012.
