      The International Symposium on MT, NLP and Translation Support
Systems (iSTRANS-2004) is scheduled to be held during November 17-19,
2004 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, India.
      The International symposium on machine translation, natural
language processing and translation support systems, is intended to
act as a forum for promoting interaction among the researchers,
developers and users across the world in the general area of machine
translation and natural language processing.
   India is a highly multilingual country with more than 18 officially
recognized languages and hundreds of dialects in use. These languages
are being used by millions of people in South Asia, South-East Asia,
Mauritius, Fiji and as minority languages in Europe, Canada and USA.
Thus India forms a good test-bed for testing translation strategies in
a practical sense.

The scope of the conference spans a wide spectrum of topics which
include (but not limited to) the following:
"	MT Strategies for simultaneous translations
"	Corpus based MT
"	Hybrid Systems
"	NLP Grammar & Parsing
"	Semantic & Lexical Resources
"	Summarization
"	Cross-Lingual Information Retrieval
"	Translation Support Systems
"	MT evaluation & Test Bed Design
"	S2S MT
"	Translation Front-end Systems (OCR, ASR etc)
"	Translation Back-end Systems (TTS, fomatting etc)

   iSTRANS-04 is being held in association with SPLASH-2004.  The
conference will have a number of key-note speakers who are actively
involved in R & D activities in this area.

  Contributions are invited for iSTRANS-04. You may submit an extended
abstract in electronic form to: rmk at iitk.ac.in latest by 15th
September 2004. Acceptance will be communicated by 10th October 2004.
The deadline for receiving final manuscript is 20th October 2004.
