The tenth biennial conference of the Association for Machine Translation
in the Americas (AMTA-2012) will be held at the Catamaran Resort Hotel
in San Diego California, Sunday, October 28 through Thursday, November
1, 2012. In addition to a research track, the main
AMTA-2012 conference program will once again include presentation tracks
for government and commercial users of MT and a "Technology Showcase" of
commercial and research-stage MT technology.

The Technology Showcase is a half-day exhibition event that allows
commercial technology providers, researchers and users to demonstrate
their technology, applications, and work processes. There are no fees
associated with exhibiting at this event, but space is limited and
applications are subject to advance approval. Exhibition booths and
wireless internet connections will be provided.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Commercial offerings of MT technology and services
- Commercial applications that embed MT technology and services
- Tools and interfaces that support work processes incorporating MT
(e.g., MT post-editing)
- Demonstrations of advanced MT systems and technology in research
stages

Application Process:

Applications for an exhibition slot at the Technology Showcase are
subject to evaluation and approval by the AMTA-2012 organizing
committee. Please provide a title and one-page description of your
proposed demonstration or technology exhibition. Please also provide
