First call for papers 

The European Association for Machine Translation will hold a major
conference in Oslo, Norway on 19-20 June, 2006. This meeting is the
eleventh in a series of regular events acting as a forum for the
exchange of ideas concerning all aspects of Machine Translation and
computer-aids/tools for translator. The purpose of the EAMT events is
to bring together users, developers and researchers to discuss the
latest developments in the field. 

The event will be held as a full-scale Conference, with a large
diversity of topics, a large number of expected participants and
papers, as well as the normal kind of services provided as part of the
conference environment. 
The conference will focus in particular but not exclusively on
experiences and expectations of users of MT systems and translation
aids, or CAT tools but contributions from developers, vendors,
researchers and teachers will be welcomed, too. (For information about
previous workshops and conferences see the EAMT website: www.eamt.org) 

The Special Theme for this Conference will be

to save money 

including 
* user experiences, potential user expectations,
