Subject: MT Summit III announcement



In order to be prepared for the fast evolving global markets of the twenty
first century where language will be a major barrier for trade,
considerable attention is being focused on Machine Translation (MT)
technology. The objective of MT Summits is to bring together governmental
policy makers, scientists and engineers developing MT technology, and
potential users of the MT systems. The first two MT Summits, held in
Hakone, JAPAN, in 1987 and in Munich, West Germany in 1989 were very

MT Summit III is the third in this series of international conferences. It
will bring together representatives from academia, industry and government
interested in promoting research, development and deployment of machine
translation and machine-aided translation technology. The conference will
feature policy debates, scholarly presentations and demonstrations
of machine translation-related software. The conference will be preceded
by a full day of EXECUTIVE BRIEFINGS and TUTORIALS on various aspects of
machine translation research, development and policy.

MT Summit III will be held on July 2 - 4, 1991
at The Mayflower Hotel, Washington, D.C.
