Any themes connected to MT research, development, deployment, use, and evaluation are welcome. Past tutorials have included: Introduction to MT, Statistical MT, Advances in Neural MT, Interactive and Adaptive MT, Advances in Computer-Aided Translation, and using specific systems such as MateCat, ModernMT, and the Microsoft Translator Hub.

Important dates:

– Proposal submission deadline: Monday, December 11, 2017

– Tutorial materials due date: Friday, March 2, 2018.

– Tutorial days: Saturday, March 17, 2018 or Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

NOTE: AMTA will not print out materials for tutorial organizers – if the organizers plan to distribute such materials, they should bring them to AMTA.

Guidelines:

Tutorials are a forum for experts in MT and MT-related areas to deliver concentrated training on a topic of interest in half-day (or occasionally full-day) teaching sessions. Please consult the accompanying AMTA2018_Tutorial_Proposal_Form.docx for a detailed description of appropriate formats, appropriate supporting material, and compensation for AMTA 2018 tutorials.
