	science,
 translation theory
 addressing preconceptions about MT in the classroom
 the use of commercial MT programs in hands-on teaching
 teaching computational aspects of MT to non-computational students
 web-based distance learning of MT MT education and industry:
 bridging the gap between academia and the real world
 teaching pre- and post-editing skills to MT users
 teaching MT evaluation
 building modules or `toy' MT systems in the laboratory
 experiences of the evaluation of MT instruction
 the role of MT in language learning
 translation studies and MT
 etc.

We invite submissions of an extended abstract of your proposed paper,
up to two pages, summarizing the main points that will be made in the
actual paper.
