Submissions should report on the use of MT to support business goals and serve customer needs in commercial settings by integrating it with other processes and technologies.
Example MT use cases include supplying on-demand localization, providing technical support information in multiple languages, and enabling global consumer-to-consumer transactions. Example products and services include MT integration with translator productivity tools, cloud-based MT services for integration with other web and mobile applications, and customization and deployment of MT engines for specific needs. See more possible topics below.

Ideal presentations will describe how MT helps to address a specific business challenge, with an objective assessment of its strengths and weaknesses for that particular challenge, supported by quantitative measures.
Submissions should not contain commercial solicitations of specific tools. If you have original software that you would like to show, you may also consider submitting a proposal for free space in the MT Summit Technology Showcase. See the “Call for MT Technology Demonstrations and Exhibits” on the conference website.

Publication
Please indicate whether you intend to submit your presentation for publication in the MT Summit XV Conference Proceedings. Publication in the Conference Proceedings is not a requirement, but we strongly suggest that you make your presentation available so other people can learn from your experiences.
If you want to have your presentation published as part of the Proceedings, it is preferred that you format it according to the Research track submission guidelines (See Call for MT Research Papers for details). However, slide decks or extended abstracts may also be accepted.

MT Summit XV is an international conference that every two years brings together researchers, developers, and users of Machine Translation technologies in industry and government. The conference reviews the state of the art in MT, its main trends, and practical applications.

What’s on the program?
The conference program for the MT Summit XV will include keynote speeches by renowned experts in the field of Machine Translation, panel discussions and presentations of submitted and invited papers organized in three program tracks – MT research,  commercial MT users, and government MT users.

Why attend?MT Summit XV will interest people from both academia and industry. For scientists it provides a unique opportunity to share research results with colleagues and understand user demands. Business participants will benefit from updates on leading-edge R & D in MT and have a chance to present their use cases.

The Technology Showcase
An exhibition of commercial and research systems will be held during the conference.

Tutorials and Workshops
Before the main conference two full days will be devoted to Tutorials and Workshops.

The Deadlines for Contributions have passed, but participation in the Technology Showcase is still open!

The Program Committee for MT Summit XV is accepting proposals for presentations in the three tracks of the program, as well as for tutorials and workshops.  Click on a link below for more information:
