Description:
The Center for Research and Innovation in Translation and Translation
Technology (CRITT) at CBS is offering the third international PhD course in
Translation Process Research (TPR) from August 5 to 8, 2013.

The course components will be taught by leading researchers in the respective
fields, including Michael Carl, Barbara Dragsted, Kristian Tangsgaard
Hvelplund and the course cooordinators Arnt Lykke Jakobsen and Laura Winther
Balling. The mornings will be devoted to lectures and discussion, while the
afternoon sessions will include participant presentations, consultation with
the lecturers, and preparing, running and analysing a demonstration experiment
using the methods taught in the morning sessions. The course will be taught in
English.

Following the course, there will be an open workshop on Speech and Gaze in
Translation (SGT Workshop) on August 9 and 10, 2013. Participants are
encouraged to participate in the workshop and invited to contribute an
abstract for a paper presentation at the workshop.

The course is 4 ECTS which means that participants should expect to invest
around 120 hours in the course, including preparation time and the course
itself. A course certificate can be obtained at the end of the course, granted
satisfactory participation. A list of required reading will be distributed
before the course. Participants should also submit 2 pages describing their
research project. More details will be provided on registration.
