We'd appreciate your limiting conference announcements to 150 lines, so that we can post more than 1 per issue. Please consider omitting information useful only to attendees, such as information on housing, transportation, or rooms and times of sessions. Please do not use abbreviations or acronyms for your conference unless you explain them in your text. Many people outside your area of specialization will not recognize them.

Message 1: On-line Translation Colloquium

Date: Tue, 25 Feb 1997 17:05:20 +0000
From: Sean Golden <sgoldencc.uab.es>
Subject: On-line Translation Colloquium

The Faculty of Translation at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona is
pleased to announce its first on-line international translation colloquium.
This first edition, devoted to the subject of intercultural transfer, is a
pilot project for future academic activities and participation is free of
charge. 

There are two invited speakers, each of whom has prepared a set of position
papers on the topic: Doug Robinson (author of *THE TRANSLATOR'S TURN*,
*TRANSLATION AND TABOO*) and Anthony Pym (author of *TRANSLATION AND TEXT
TRANSFER*, *EPISTEMOLOGICAL PROBLEMS IN TRANSLATION AND ITS TEACHING*). 

Michael Cronin (author of *TRANSLATING IRELAND: TRANSLATION, LANGUAGES,
CULTURES*) will act as Respondent in order to begin the discussion.

The on-line colloquium has a Web site where the position papers and the
response may be consulted. This site also includes bio-bibliographical
information on the speakers, as well as more information about the
colloquium, the Faculty of Translation, the Universitat Autonoma de
Barcelona, and links to resources for translators. The site for the
colloquium is located at:

http://cc.uab.es/~iuts0/colloquium.html

Please note that <~iuts0> ends with a zero, not with the letter 'o'. 

Since the colloquium's Web pages include graphic elements that could
prolong their loading time, you may want to disable the 'IMAGE' control on
your Web browser. (The position papers by Anthony Pym do include graphics
that are pertinent, however.)

Participation in the on-line colloquium will be carried out on the list
TRANSFER-L that has been created for that purpose. To subscribe to this
list, send the following message to <mailservcc.uab.es>:

accumulative basis. 

Participants may send their comments and questions to the invited speakers
by means of the TRANSFER-L list, and the speakers will respond by the same
means. Everyone subscribed to the list will receive these messages. If you
wish to leave the list, send the following message to <mailservcc.uab.es>:
