    EAMT Best Thesis Award 2011

The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT, 
http://www.eamt.org) is an organization that serves the growing 
community of people interested in MT and translation tools, including 
users, developers, and researchers of this increasingly viable technology.

The EAMT invites entries for its fourth EAMT Best Thesis Award for a PhD 
or equivalent thesis on a topic related to machine translation.


Researchers who

    * are members of the EAMT,
    * have submitted a PhD (or equivalent) thesis on a relevant topic in
      an European, Northern African or Middle Eastern institution within
      calendar year 2011,
    * have successfully obtained the PhD or equivalent degree, and
    * have not previously won a similar award,

are invited to submit their theses to the EAMT for consideration.


The submissions will be judged by a panel of experts from the EAMT 


The scope of the thesis need not be confined to a technical area, and 
applications are also invited from students who carried out their 
research into commercial and management aspects of machine translation.

Possible areas of research might include:

    * development of machine translation or advanced computer-assisted
      translation systems: software and resources
    * machine translation for less-resourced languages
    * the use of these systems in professional environments (freelance
      translators, translation agencies, localisation, etc.)
    * the increasing impact of machine translation on non-professional
      Internet users and its impact in communications, social
      networking, etc.
    * machine translation and post-editing
    * spoken language translation
    * the integration of machine translation and translation memory systems
    * the integration of machine translation software in larger IT
    * the evaluation of machine translation systems in real tasks such
      as those above
    * the cross-fertilisation between machine translation and other
      language technologies


The winner will receive a prize of EUR500, together with a 
suitably-inscribed certificate. In addition, the recipient of the award 
will be expected to briefly present their research at the EAMT 2012 
conference in Spring 2012. In order to facilitate this, the EAMT will 
waive the winner's registration costs, and will make available a travel 
bursary of EUR200 to enable the recipient of the award to attend the 
said conference.


Should you wish to enter your thesis, please forward:

    * an electronic copy of your thesis (PDF preferred)
    * a 2-page summary of the thesis in English (PDF preferred)
    * your full contact details,
    * the name and contact details of your supervisor(s),
    * a copy of your CV (max. one page) (PDF preferred)
