The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the EAMT 2023 conference taking place in Tampere, from 12 to 14 June 2023 with workshops held on 15 June. We solicit proposals in all areas of machine translation. EAMT workshops are intended to provide the opportunity for MT-related communities of interest to spend focused time together advancing the state of thinking or the state of practice in their area of interest or endeavour. Workshops are generally scheduled as full-day events. Every effort will be made to accept or reject (with reason) workshop proposals as soon as possible after they are received by the organising committee so that the workshop organisers have adequate time to prepare the workshop.
