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
