Message 1: MT and Translation Theory Workshop

Date: 13 June 1992, Berlin
From: <>
Subject: MT and Translation Theory Workshop


WORKSHOP ON MACHINE TRANSLATION AND TRANSLATION THEORY

Dear colleagues,
We (that is Ulrike Schwall as a representative of the European
Association for Machine Translation and I as a person who is
especially interested in combining machine translation with
translation theory) are planning a small workshop in the temporal
neighbourhood of Coling 92 at Nantes. It will take place on July
22nd at 2 pm. at a place to be announced as soon as we know the
approximate number of participants. Christian Boitet told me that
we could have a room at the IUD.

The program will be the following:

* 2-3 papers (about 30 minutes each) by experts in the fields of
 translation theory and/or MT;
* very short (max. 5 minutes) presentations by the participants
 of what they are doing in the field(s) and in which respect they
 are interested in the combination of MT with translation theory;
* discussion of perspectives and future activities.

As Uli has just moved to Munich and I haven't yet got e-mail in
my new position at the University of Hildesheim, we ask you to
use the e-mail account, fax or mailing address of the secretary
of the KIT group of the TU Berlin (with which I am still cooperating)
in order to signal your interest and for further information.
