The 14th biennial conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas. 

September 8-12

Sheraton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Resort

Orlando, Florida, USA

AMTA conferences are unique in bringing together MT researchers, developers, and users of MT technology from academia, industry, and government. This year AMTA 2020 we have arranged for a spectacular venue in Orlando, Florida, located just outside the Disney theme parks.

Why attend AMTA 2020? For academic and commercial researchers it provides a unique opportunity to share the latest results with colleagues as well as understand real-world user requirements. Business and government participants will benefit from updates on leading-edge R&D in Machine Translation and have a chance to present and discuss their use cases.

The conference will feature three main tracks – Research, Commercial, and Government, each dedicated to a respective area in machine translation research, commercial application, and government use. There will be invited talks and panels, and for the first time, a special Student Research Workshop that will provide students an opportunity to present their work during a session of the main conference. Relevant and engaging tutorials and workshops will also be held on the first and last days of the conference.

Topics covered will include the latest advancements in machine translation, such as deep learning and neural MT, MT for low-resource languages, user-interfaces for MT, MT evaluation approaches, MT in commercial settings, integration of MT into localization lifecycles, MT in chat and support scenarios, MT for “noisy” content types, MT as a translator tools, and many more.

We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
