EAMT Conference 2008
Hosted by the University of Hamburg



The EAMT is organising a major conference in Hamburg, Germany on 22-23  
September 2008. This meeting is the 12th in a series of regular events  
acting as a forum for the exchange of ideas concerning all aspects of  
Machine Translation and computer aids and tools for translators. The  
purpose of EAMT events is to bring together users, developers and  
researchers to discuss the latest developments in this field.  It will  
be a full-scale conference, covering a large range of topics, it will  
have invited speakers, and it is expected to attract a large number of  
participants and papers.  For information about previous workshops and  
conferences see the EAMT website: www.eamt.org

Submissions are particularly welcome which focus on the main theme of  
the conference:

       Machine translation applications in practice:
           operational systems,

           multilingual extraction,
           cross-language information retrieval,
           multilingual summarization, and
           hand-held devices

       As in previous years, the conference will also address the  
prospects and perspectives for MT within the specific situation of  
multilingual Europe.  However, potential speakers should note that  
submissions on all aspects of MT and computer-based translation tools  
will be welcomed ? from developers, users, and researchers.
