Call for Papers:

Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) invites submissions for its tenth annual conference to be held at Euroforum, San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Madrid, Spain from October 30 to November 1, 2014.

We invite proposals that relate to this year's theme – Innovation and tradition: mining the human resource – or that respond to our association's broad interest in helping language professionals improve the quality of their services and their ability to respond to clients' needs. We welcome presentations in 5 areas: 1) Business issues/client relations, 2) Language issues, 3) Working practice issues, 4) Technology, and 5) Research/Academia.

Priority will be given to presentations that express a clear take-home message and explain its relevance to our members. Typical METM presentations describe promising practices, report research findings, or provide knowledge updates. Please note that MET is a knowledge-sharing and peer-training network and encourages submissions from both seasoned and novice presenters with expertise to share.

To submit a proposal, please send an abstract of 200 to 300 words and a short biography (50-100 words) to Tom O'Boyle, METM14 content coordinator (metm14elescorial AT gmail.com). Your abstract should briefly describe the what, how, and why of your presentation, in the order that is most persuasive, and it should have an informative title. If you would like to discuss the suitability of your proposal before sending in your abstract, please feel free to write to Tom.

Presentations have an approximate duration of 20-25 minutes. The deadline for submission of abstracts is April 30, 2014.

METM14 Content Committee:

Sally Burgess (academia/research), Francesca Matteoda (in-the-office/practical issues), John Bates (language), Felicity Neilson (business issues/client relations), Emma Goldsmith (technology)
