 Meeting Description: 
 
 The previous conference in this series (TMI 2002) held in Keihanna, Kyoto,
 emphasized the synergy between empirical and knowledge-based approaches to
 Machine Translation. Another topic of interest was MT for new, so-called
 ''low-density'' languages. We continue to focus on these issues in the
 current TMI. Up to now, the papers presented at the TMI conferences were
 concerned with text-to-text translation. This year, we would like to extend
 the scope of the research presented at the TMI by including work on spoken
 language and sign language in Machine Translation. 
 
 Come join us for the full conference or just for a day!
 
 The Tenth Conference on Theoretical and Methodological Issues in Machine
 Translation
