The 14th biennial conference of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas has been rescheduled to OCTOBER 6-10 and will be held as a virtual conference using a powerful, enterprise collaboration platform. It was previously scheduled from September 8th to the 12th in Orlando, Florida

We apologize for sending out this notice only now, but along with the organizers of many other conferences, we have been scrambling to finalize the new arrangements.

The submission deadline for all papers and presentations, which was April 27, will now be extended approximately two months in order to give everyone plenty of time to rework their submissions, and in some cases reconsider making submissions during what continues to be a time of great uncertainty.

An updated Call For Papers and Presentations with new dates and submission instructions will be distributed on or before next Monday, May 4th.

Please know that we will do everything possible to maximize virtual interactions between conference attendees within all the contexts normally provided by a physical conference, and we expect to have an expanded virtual audience of experts and practitioners from research, industry, and academia, including many students who might normally not be able to attend.

For academic and commercial researchers, AMTA 2020 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 virtual conference will continue to 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 from experts in the field such as Colin Cherry (Google Research), Mona Diab (George Washington University), Chris Wendt (Microsoft Research), and Eric Paquin (Translators without Borders), as well as panels of practitioners from across the MT spectrum. 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.

We look forward to “seeing” you at AMTA 2020 – VIRTUAL!
