AMTA 2006 is the 7th biennial conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas. The conference will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, across the Charles River from Boston, and right next to MIT Campus. Cambridge and the Boston area are home to a large number of active MT and related language technology companies and users.
The founding goal of AMTA was to bring together researchers, developers and users (a group that includes sponsors, evaluators, and observers of MT). AMTA 2006 offers a program with the high quality technical content that has become a hallmark of AMTA events. The conference is preceded by a day of focused tutorials on Tuesday, August 8th. The main conference includes a special two-day program track specifically for users and prospective users of translation technology on Wednesday and Thursday, August 9th and 10th. The technical program continues through Friday. The conference is followed by a day (Saturday, August 12th) of hands-on workshops for special interest groups.
