AMTA-2012, the Tenth Biennial Conference of the Association for Machine
Translation in the Americas will take place at the Catamaran Resort
Hotel in San Diego California, from Sunday, October 28 through Thursday,

Important dates:

- Proposal Submission deadline:   Thursday, May 31

What to submit: 

Proposals for workshops and tutorials should be submitted by May 31,
2012 to Alain Desilets (alain.desilets at, Tutorials) or Jay
Marciano (jay.marciano at, Workshops). They should include
the proposed format (workshop or tutorial), a title, a one-page
description of the proposed content, technical requirements and the
expected number of participants. In the case of a workshop, the proposal
should also include dates for important milestones (call for papers,
recruitment of speakers, etc.), and whether this is an ongoing or new
workshop. If you would like your event to be held on the bridge day
between ATA and AMTA (Sunday October 28), your proposal should
additionally make a case for why it would be of interest to ATA members.

Workshop and Tutorial proposals must also include a signed copy of the
AMTA Workshop or Tutorial Policy and Leader Agreement Form. The forms
