Meeting Description:

A conference of translators and interpreters, academics and practitioners, focussed on innovation and dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the setting up of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT).

2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators Incorporated (AUSIT). Over the past 25 years, AUSIT has made a significant contribution to improving the professional practice of translating and interpreting in Australia. On the occasion of this biennial conference, we aim to celebrate those achievements and build on the successes of the past.

The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 6 April 2012.

Proposals for individual papers, workshops and posters are invited from both translation and interpreting scholars and practising translators and interpreters. Abstracts should be 250 words for individual papers and posters and 500 words for workshops. Presentations on all aspects of translation and interpreting studies are welcome. However, priority will be given to papers that address the following themes which focus on drawing inspiration from the past for a brighter future in translation and interpreting:

- Innovative practice in translation and interpreting
- Innovative pedagogies for translator and interpreter education
- Innovative practices in the assessment of translators and interpreters
- Innovations in the implementation of language policy for improved service provision
- Innovations in research trends in translation and interpreting studies

Proposals are invited for the following types of presentation:

- Papers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion.
- Workshops will be allocated 1.5 hours.
- Posters will be allocated a special session, when the presenters will have the opportunity to discuss their work. The posters will then remain on display for the rest of the conference.
