TRANSLATING AND THE COMPUTER 28 Conference
(16-17 November 2006, Kensington, London).
Sponsors: TILP and Alchemy Software Development
Supported by: BCS, EAMT, IAMT, IoL and ITI

This conference focuses on the user's perspective of how
computers/software 
are used in translation. The conference series attracts a wide
audience 
which includes translators, business managers, researchers and
language 
experts.

Once again, this year the conference will address the latest
developments 
in translation (and translation-related) software. It will address the 
needs of the following conference attendees: industry, public 
administration, agencies, freelancers and development.

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at
the 
conference. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the
user 
aspects of translation or translation-related software rather than on 
theoretical issues. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations are 
especially welcome.
