21st Conference "Translating and the Computer"
             10-11 November 1999, London

The annual conference "Translating and the Computer" has been an
important forum for Machine Translation and Translation Aids users
over the past 20 years. The conference is one of the few international
events which focuses on the user aspects of translation software and
as such has been particularly beneficial to a very wide audience
including translators, business managers, researchers and language

Against the background of an increasingly multilingual society and the
all-encompassing impact of information technology, this year's
conference will address the latest developments in translation (and
translation-related) software.

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at
the conference. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the
user aspects of translation or translation-related software rather
than on research and development issues. Presentations accompanied by
demonstrations are especially welcome.

- ----

The range of conference topics includes (but is not limited to)

- use of Machine Translation (MT) systems
- machine-aided translation and translation aids
- memory based translation
- controlled languages and their use in MT
- speech translation
- terminology
- localisation
- translation aids for minority languages
- multilingual document management/workflow
- experience of companies using translation software
- translating and the computer: the new millennium challenges
- the Internet and translation aids

Subject:  EACL99 Workshop: Call for Participation


Ninth Conference of the European Chapter
of the Association for Computational Linguistics

EACL-99, University of Bergen
12th June 1999

Sponsored by ELSNET
Invited Speaker Dr. Jo Calder
(University of Edinburgh)


The field of language and speech technology is such that curricula
have always been closely related to computational theories and related
tools. Yet tools that are available to support curricula are often no
more than unrefined versions of programs developed in research
laboratories that authors have generously made available to the
public.  The aims of this workshop are:

- To present examples of computer/internet supported tools that
  are in current use or under development.

- To establish a registry of computational tools that are currently
  being used to support Education in Language and Speech Technology (ELST).

- To consider the possibility of adopting a common framework
  for the development of tools and environments specifically designed with
  educational goals in mind.

- To establish a special interest group (e.g. under the
  auspices of the learned associations and/or ELSNET) within which the
  educational issues in our field could be given the time and attention
  they deserve.
