---------------------------------------------------------------------- MT Summit XVI | Call for Tutorial Proposals


Contact: Masaaki Nagata (tutorial at mtsummit2017.org)

MT Summit XVI is looking for proposals for tutorials on any MT-related topic. We are searching for tutorials from experts in the areas below:

- MT Researchers and developers - Commercial MT Users - Governmental MT Users, and - Translators that use MT

As well as these, all themes related to MT research, development, deployment, use, and evaluation will be considered. Tutorials are scheduled for Monday, 18 September 2017, immediately prior to the main conference, or Friday, 22 September 2017, which is immediately after the main conference.


Tutorials at the MT Summit provide a venue for experts in MT and MT-related areas to give concentrated training sessions on a topic of interest that last for a half-day (or occasionally a full-day). Tutorials helps conference participants (especially newcomers to the field) to get to grips with the conference program and enrich their understanding of particular technical, applied, and business matters relating to research, development and use of MT and translation technology. Tutorials often take the form of presentations that sometimes include demonstrations, online information, participant exercises and other instructional materials and activities. (The summit will be held in Japan, so topics related to Asian languages are also welcome)


Each presenter will receive a 60,000 JPY honorarium in addition to the cost of a single economy class airline ticket for the purpose of attending the conference if there are at least 10 registered attendees for the tutorial. The honorarium is the same regardless of the number of presenters. Please be aware that for cost reasons, the MT Summit XVI organizing committee reserves the right to cancel any tutorial that has fewer than 10 registered attendees.

Tutorial materials

The tutorial fees take into account the fact that participants are afforded access to an expert and shall gain something of value. Well-organized handouts and other materials for the participants are thus essential. Tutorial speakers have responsibility to provide materials such as presentation slides and other materials that constitute part of the tutorial (in PDF format) to enable registrants to access the materials online before the tutorial session and to print them and bring them to MT Summit XVI 2017 should they so desire. Tutorial speakers must submit these materials to the Tutorials chair on or before the deadline for submission.
