Subject: MT Summit VII-Call for Paper/Supplement

Dear Sir/ Madam,

The seventh Machine Translation Summit will be held at Kent Ridge
Digital Labs on the campus of National University of Singapore from 13
to 17 September 1999. We look forward to the participation of those
who are interested in any aspect of machine translation. We are
pleased to inform you of the 2nd Call for Papers and the Call for
Paper Supplement,Call for Paper Supplement-2, which are additional
informations of the 2nd Call for Papers.

Because of the nature of MT Summit as a forum of MT researchers,
users, industrialists and funding agencies, we welcome papers, not
only on technical/theoretical issues of MT, but also on

[1] users' experiences
[2] innovative uses of MT in commercial products
[3] evaluation of actual MT systems
[4] proposal of practical uses of MT systems like controlled languages
[5] users' interactions, 
 etc.
 
It would be of great help if you could kindly inform to relevant
institutions and individuals who may be interested in submitting
papers to the conference.

Also, for further information of the MT Summit VII, please see Web-site:

every two years since 1987 under the auspices of AAMT, EAMT (European
Association for Machine Translation) and AMTA (Association for Machine
Translation in the Americas). MT Summit VII, which is the last
conference of the 20th century in the premier series of conferences on
machine translation, will provide a forum for discussing the prospect
of MT and related areas in the coming century. MT Summit VII will
feature an expanded program including research papers, reports on
users' experiences, discussions of policy issues, invited talks,
panels, exhibitions, tutorials, and workshops. AAMT invites all who
are interested in any aspect of machine translation - researchers,
developers, providers, users, and watchers - to participate in the
conference.

The schedule of MT Summit VII is outlined as follows:
 Monday, 13 September: Tutorials Reception
