There are a few changes to the programme to announce:
1.  Unfortunately Barrou Diallo cannot now give his presentation on Day 
One.  In that slot, we now have Dr Joanna Drugan (of Leeds University) who 
will give a paper on Multilingual document management and workflow in the 
European institutions. The detailed abstract describing this paper can be 
found on the Aslib web site at 	 

2.  Hanspeter Sigrist, who was due to speak on Day Two, cannot now attend. 
 We are very pleased to announce that Klaus Ahrend, Acting Head of Unit, 
European Commission, Directorate-General for Translation (Unit DGT.03 - 
Interinstitutional Relations and General Affairs), will give a keynote 
presentation on Multilingualism in an enlarged Union - Challenges and 
opportunities for the European Commission's translation service.

3. We are also very pleased to announce that Dr Gregor Thurmair, Linguatec, 
will present a paper on
rule-based versus statistics-based MT.

Confirmed exhibitors to date are:
- StorePoint International Ltd
- PASS Engineering
- Language Technology Centre

Remember that if 3 delegates from your organisation book into the 
conference, the 3rd delegate only has to pay 50% of the fee. There is still 
time to book in!
