The seventh Machine Translation Summit, organized by the Asia-Pacific
Association for Machine Translation (AAMT), will be held at Kent Ridge
Digital Labs on the campus of National University of Singapore from 13
to 17 September 1999.  Meetings of the MT Summit have been held once
every two years since 1987 under the auspices of AAMT, EAMT (European
Association for Machine Translation) and AMTA (Association for Machine
Translation in the Americas).  MT Summit VII, which is the last
conference of the 20th century in the premier series of conferences on
machine translation, will provide a forum for discussing the prospect of
MT and related areas in the coming century.  MT Summit VII will feature
an expanded program including research papers, reports on users'
experiences, discussions of policy issues, invited talks, panels,
exhibitions, tutorials, and workshops.  AAMT invites all who are
interested in any aspect of machine translation - researchers,
developers, providers, users, and watchers - to participate in the
conference.  The schedule of MT Summit VII is outlined as follows:
  Monday,      13 September: Tutorials  Reception

Submissions are invited for reports of significant research results in
any aspect of machine translation and related areas.  Such reports
should include a substantial evaluative component.  Papers should be in
English, not longer than 5,000 words.
 
(2) System presentations with demos:
 
Submissions are invited for reports on the design, implementation,
