Please find enclosed the preliminary program for the Fourth
International Conference on Theoretical and Methodological Issues in
Machine Translation (TMI-92), which will take place in Montreal,
Canada between June 25-27, 1992. Organized by the Canadian Automation
Research Center (CWARC), this year's Conference has as its main theme
the opposition between empiricist and rationalist methods in MT.

The Conference is being held at Le Grand Hotel, which is
situated right in the heart of downtown Montreal and which offers an
ultra-modern auditorium seating 145 people. This means that we will
not be able to accept more than 145 registrants. Therefore, if you
wish to attend, you are advised to reserve your place by registering
right away. To do so, complete the enclosed registration form and
return it to us, along with the appropriate payment in Canadian
dollars, as soon as possible.

Registration fees for the Conference are $125 CDN (tax
included), for those who register before May 15. These fees include a
copy of the Proceedings, lunch on Thursday and Friday, and all coffee
breaks. After May 15, registration is $175. A banquet will be held
on Friday night, and all participants are encouraged to attend; cost
of the banquet is $30 CDN (tax included). For students, Conference
registration is $100 CDN (tax included) before May 15, and $125 CDN
after May 15.

A block of rooms has been reserved in the hotel for Conference
participants, at a preferential rate of $95 CDN per night (plus tax).
To obtain this rate, participants must make their own reservations
before May 15. Reservations may be made by phoning the hotel at (514)
879-1370, or by fax at (514) 879-1761; in either case, be sure to
mention TMI-92. For those seeking less expensive accommodations,
information on two alternative hotels is included in this mailing.

You may be interested to note that Montreal will be hosting an
exceptional choice of tourist activities this summer, owing to the
celebration of the city's 350th anniversary, as well as the 125th
anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

regarding registration, contact Denise Dufresne by telephone at (514)
