*Machine Translation Summit XIV - 2--6 September 2013, Nice, France*

*First Call for **Commercial/User papers and Commercial/User 

The Fourteenth Machine Translation Summit, organized by the 
International Association for Machine Translation and the European 
Association for Machine Translation, will be held at the ACROPOLIS 
conference centre, Nice, France, 2--6 September 2013.

The conference programme for the MT Summit 2013 will include keynote 
speeches by renowned experts in Machine Translation, panel discussions 
and presentations of submitted and invited papers organized in two 
programme tracks - research and commercial/user.

An exhibition of commercial and research systems will be held during the 
conference as well as a 'Project Village' featuring the best of recently 
funded collaborative work. Before the main conference two full days will 
be devoted to tutorials and workshops. There will be a variety of 
sightseeing tours in the beautiful surroundings of Nice both before and 
after the MT Summit.

*CFP **Commercial/User**Program Track*

The Commercial User track will focus on how MT can meet business needs 
and create viable consumer products and services. Examples of MT applied 
to business needs include such as just-in-time localization of critical 
information, delivery of multilingual technical support information, or 
creation of draft translations for post-editing.

The MT Summit 2013 is sure to be of great interest for users as well as 
developers of Machine Translation. Developers of MT will benefit from 
updates on leading-edge R & D in MT and will offer them a unique 
opportunity to share their most recent developments with users and 
potential users of MT.

Users of Machine Translation will meet other users and exchange valuable 
experiences on using Machine Translation.

*What to submit*

Ideal presentations will clearly identify a business need and describe 
how MT meets those needs, with a candid assessment of its strengths and 
limitations for that particular usage, supported as possible by data.
