Meeting Description: 

The ninth Machine Translation Summit, organized by the International
Association for Machine Translation (IAMT) and hosted by the
Association for Machine Translation in the Americas (AMTA), will be
held in New Orleans, Louisiana, from 23 to 28 September 2003. We
invite all those with an interest in translation automation --
researchers, developers, translation service providers, users, or
managers -- to participate in the conference. 

There are three categories of submissions, each with its own
requirements; see the Conference Website for details. Submissions
should be emailed to the Program Chair by May 11, 2003:

MT Summit IX will feature a comprehensive programme that will include
research papers, reports on users' experiences, discussions of policy
issues, invited talks, panels, exhibits, tutorials, and workshops. We
define machine translation in the broadest possible sense, to include
not just fully automatic MT but tools for translation support and
multilingual text processing as well.

MT Summit IX hereby invites original submissions on all aspects
machine and machine-aided translation. The submissions must be in
English and fall into one of three categories:

* research (or theoretical) papers: maximum length 8 pages; 
* user's studies (including manager's experiences): maximum length 8 pages;
* system presentations (with optional demos): maximum length 4 pages. 

Electronic submissions are strongly preferred, in PDF or MS-Word
format only please. As the reviewing process will be blind, authors
of the first two categories (research and user studies) are requested
to keep their papers anonymous. This means that these submissions
should NOT include the author's name; rather, papers should be
identified only by their title. In addition to the electronic file
containing their paper, authors must also submit a separate cover page
on which the name and affiliation of the author(s) do appear, along
with the title of the paper and the category of the submission. The
two electronic files should be attached to an email and sent to the
following address:

Note that the requirement of anonymity does not apply to system
presentations. However, those submitting system descriptions with
demos are asked to specify on their cover page the type of equipment
they will require for their demonstration.

We will acknowledge receipt of all papers received before the deadline
and issue a submission number to each author. Please refer to that
number in all subsequent correspondence. Anyone who is unable to make
an electronic submission is asked to contact the Program Chair.
Guidelines and style files for the preparation of the final
camera-ready copy will be made available to the authors of accepted
submissions in due time.


- May 11, 2003 : 	Deadline for the submission of papers
- June 30, 2003 : 	Notification of acceptance sent to authors
- July 31, 2003 : 	Camera-ready copy due
- September 23, 2003 : 	Conference opens 

Proposals are also invited for panel and/or special sessions on issues
of general importance to machine and machine-aided translation, which
should be the subject of public debate at MT Summit IX. Please send
your proposals to the Program Chair and include a description of the
session theme, a justification of its importance, and the names of
some suggested speakers or panellists.

Please consult the Conference Website for the latest information on
all aspects of the Summit:
