In order to be prepared for the fast evolving global markets of the
twenty first century where language will be a major barrier for trade,
considerable attention is being focused on Machine Translation (MT)
technology. The objective of MT Summits is to bring together
governmental policy makers, scientists and engineers developing MT
technology, and potential users of the MT systems. The first two MT
Summits, held in Hakone, JAPAN, in 1987 and in Munich, West Germany in
1989 were very successful.

MT Summit III is the third in this series of international conferences.
It will bring together representatives from academia, industry and
government interested in promoting research, development and deployment
of machine translation and machine-aided translation technology. The
conference will feature policy debates, scholarly presentations and
demonstrations of machine translation-related software. The conference
will be preceded by a full day of EXECUTIVE BRIEFINGS and TUTORIALS on
various aspects of machine translation research, development and policy.

MT Summit III will be held on July 2 - 4, 1991
at The Mayflower Hotel, Washington, D.C.

The organizing committee:

Jaime Carbonell, General Chair
Sergei Nirenburg, Program Chair
