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

October 6-10

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 Microsoft Teams, a powerful, enterprise collaboration platform. It was previously scheduled from September 8-12 in Orlando, Florida. 

The submission deadline for all papers and presentations has now been extended two months in order to provide time to rework submissions, and in some cases, to reconsider making submissions during what continues to be a period of great uncertainty.

The organizing committee will do everything possible to maximize virtual interactions between conference attendees within all the contexts normally provided by a physical conference. 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 these expert keynote speakers:

Colin Cherry (Google Research) Mona Diab (George Washington University)
Chris Wendt (Microsoft Research) Danielle Silverman (National Virtual Translation)
Eric Paquin (Translators without Borders)     Andy Way (ADAPT Centre, Dublin City University)

A special Student Research Workshop 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.
