The Sixth International Conference on Theoretical and Methodological
Issues in Machine Translation (TMI95) will be held from July 5 to 7
1995 at the University of Leuven, Belgium. It will precede the Fifth
edition of the MT Summit, hosted by the EC in Luxembourg from July 10
to 14.
TMI95 will focus on three major topics: computational semantics for MT,
MT of spoken language, and the use of sublanguage/controlled language
for MT.

Paper submission and deadlines:
-------------------------------

As a novelty for TMI, two kinds of papers can be submitted:

1. high-quality topical papers focussing on (but not limited to) the broad
 domains of
 - computational semantics for MT
 - MT for spoken language
 - the use of sublanguage or controlled language for MT

1.1 Six copies of topical papers should be submitted by JANUARY 15 1995.
 The papers should respect the following conventions:
 - single column, double-spaced, point size 12 for running text
 (figures, annexes, references can deviate from this)
 - maximum length: 20 pages including figures and references
 (about 5000 words)
 - they must be in English
 - they must contain a 100-150 word abstract

1.2 Papers will be reviewed by international experts in the field.
 Notification of acceptance will be sent by APRIL 15 1995.

1.3 Camera-ready copy for the proceedings (without page numbering!)

2. short progress notes reporting on ongoing research, possibly
 accompanied by a demonstration (no commercial systems)

2.1 Six copies of progress notes should be submitted by JANUARY 15 1995.
