MT Summit XII brings together scientists, developers, and users of machine translation and other tools for multilingual processing. The conference will survey the international state of the art and practice in machine translation with:

  • A full MT research program track
  • Government and Commercial MT user program tracks
  • Special sessions on technology in translator training and tools for translators
  • A technology showcase with live demonstrations of MT systems and applications incorporating machine translation.

Before the main conference, one full day (Wednesday, August 26) will be devoted to tutorials, and after the conference another day (Sunday, August 30) will be devoted to specialized workshops. (We've added two "mid-conference" workshops this time too – so take some time to study the conference overview before you register). Finally, NIST will hold their Open MT Evaluation Workshop, (the NIST workshop is by invitation only. Monday and Tuesday, August 31-September 1) at the same hotel. These wide-ranging activities will allow participants from research, business, and government to engage experts and explore how to use machine translation technology to conquer language barriers and overcome the digital divide.
