The submissions will be judged by a panel of experts who will be
specifically appointed as part of the EAMT 2018 programme committee and

Each thesis will be judged according to how challenging the problem was, to
how relevant the results are for machine translation as a field, and to the
strength of their impact in terms of scientific publications.
The scope of the thesis need not be confined to a technical area, and
applications are also invited from students who carried out their research
into commercial and management aspects of machine translation.
Possible areas of research include:
development of machine translation or advanced computer-assisted
translation: methods, software or resources
machine translation for less-resourced languages
the use of these systems in professional environments (freelance
translators, translation agencies, localisation, etc.)
the increasing impact of machine translation on non-professional
Internet users and its impact in communications, social networking, etc.
spoken language translation
the integration of machine translation and translation memory systems
the integration of machine translation software in larger IT applications
the evaluation of machine translation systems in real tasks such as
the cross-fertilisation between machine translation and other language
