EAMT 2009
13th Annual Conference of the European Association for Machine Translation

May 14-15, 2009
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, SPAIN

Conference web site:

The 13th Annual Meeting of the European Association for Machine Translation
is being organised by Centre for Speech and Language Applications and
Technologies (TALP) and will take place May 14-15 on the Campus Nord of the
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain.

The meetings of the European Association for Machine Translation are
intended to provide a forum for researchers, commercial developers and users
to exchange of ideas concerning all aspects of Machine Translation and
translation-related tools and resources. The aim is to present recent
research and current state of the art in the area, explore emerging R&D
trends, provide information about evaluation techniques and tools and review
the translation needs and the uses of translation technologies on the part
of government and industry.

The Scientific Programme will include invited talks, a series of oral
presentations and poster sessions. This year the main theme of the
conference is:

"Translation among European languages, especially for languages
with smaller speech communities and limited digital resources"

There are 23 official languages in the EU almost half of which have fewer
than 10 million speakers. In addition, there are perhaps as many as 80
additional recognized languages or dialects spoken within its territory, the
majority of which have fewer than 2 million speakers. The problems faced by
government and industry in providing goods and services to people in their
native language, in many cases a matter of law, is at the very least
daunting. At the same time, current MT development methods require large
amounts of human and/or digital resources. Thus, the focus of this EAMT
conference is on how to develop translation technologies for and among
languages with fewer speakers and more limited digital resources.

However, contributions are welcome on all topics related to Machine
Translation or translation related technologies including:
· MT methodologies and techniques (SMT, EBMT, RBMT)
· Hybrid approaches integrating RMT and SMT
· Speech -to-speech translation
· Translation aids (translation memory, terminology databases, etc.)
· Practical MT systems (for professionals, multilingual eCommerce,
localization, etc.)
· Translation environments (workflow, support tools, conversion tools
for lexica, etc.)
· Human factors in MT and user interfaces
· MT embedded in other services (web search, eGovernment, etc.)
· MT evaluation methodologies and tools
· Lexicon and grammar acquisition and induction
· Dictionaries and lexica for MT
· Text and speech corpora for MT
· Multilingual technologies (natural language generation, information
retrieval, text categorization, text summarization, information
extraction, etc.)

The principal dates of interest include:
· October 2008: Initial call for papers
· 31 Jan 2009: Submission deadline
· 14-15 May 2009: Conference
