4th International Conference on Interpreting in the
Community

The Critical Link 4
"Professionalisation of interpreting in the community"

May 20-23, 2004
Stockholm University
Sweden

Conference website: http://www.tolk.su.se/CL2004

Content and purpose

For a new profession, the issue of professionalisation is of vital
importance. This has also been reflected in many contributions to the
former Critical Link conferences (http://www.criticallink.org). By
making professionalisation the explicit topic of Critical Link 4, we
wish to give a decisive impetus to the ongoing processes towards this
goal world-wide.

Subtopics will include:
* interpreters' professional standards and their evaluation
* interpreters' labour market and working conditions
* aspects of interpreter training
* research on community interpreting and sign language interpreting 
* the role of the professional organisations, etc.

An important goal is to emphasise the links between different kinds of
interpreters (for example community interpreters and sign language
interpreters) who are very often trained in different programmes and
organised in different professional organisations. We hope this will
lead to mutual consciousness-raising and new forms of co-operation.

We are looking for presenters and presentations covering a wide range
of areas, both geographically and thematically, to allow for a
comprehensive and all-round overview and analysis of the conference
topic. In addition to individual papers, there will be poster
sessions, workshops and exhibitions.

Important dates
* Autumn 2002 - Call for papers
* March 31st, 2003 - deadline for proposals for panels, workshops and
exhibitions 
* March 31st, 2003 - deadline for submission of abstracts
for individual papers and posters
