Meeting Description:

Objectives
-To provide a platform for the discussion of the practical and the
professional
-To provide the opportunity to highlight and discuss recent and
existing research within and between groups at local, national and
international levels in the areas listed below
-Speech & Language Pathology
-Translation and interpreting
-Language related developments in ICT
-Language and law, forensic linguistics
-Administration and management - public and private sectors
-Pragmatics and cross-cultural communication

Modern human societies are typified, the world over, by the provision
of an enormous range of services: in business and commerce, education,
public administration, healthcare, social and public welfare.

These services are almost invariably provided by groups of
professionals who share common attitudes, values and practices and are
frequently bound together by codes of professional ethics and
principles of good practice which constrain their behaviour, and
thereby, protect their clients from inadequate or inappropriate
service.

None of this would be possible without effective communication both
within and between the groups involved at all levels: local, national
and international. This implies a shared system of communication which
regulates and facilitates the provision of services and information.

The aim of this conference is to examine the implications of
professionalism amongst language service providers, the fundamental
issue of how ethical principles, which define a profession, can be
harmonised with the pragmatic needs of day-to-day practice and how
these are realised through language and communication.

Who the Conference is for

-NGO's - social, health, public welfare
-Corporate personnel in communication
-Academics and professionals involved in language and communication
skills training and speech therapy
-Academics and professionals involved in translation and interpreting
-Legal practitioners, trainers and counsellors
-Medical practitioners, trainers and counsellors
-Public administrators and trainers
