Meeting Description:

Over the last two decades, the CIHLIE has become a must for the research of specialised languages in the Ibero-Romance field. In the eight editions held since the first one in 1996, a wide range of approaches have been considered, from terminology and the dissemination of science, the translation of scientific texts, the standardisation of specialised languages, text comparison and cultural and discursive traditions, to the intertextual and social dialogical perspective, and, lastly, specialised lexicography.

In this ninth edition, we delve into the creation and development of new specialised text types and into the rise of new discursive resources that have emerged throughout history up to the end of the 20th century.

Aims and Lines of Work:
In similar fashion to previous editions, the aims of the Colloquium comprise:
- examining the current situation of research on specialised languages in general and on Ibero-Romance languages in particular;
- identifying solutions and historical paths that can serve to harmonize current issues in the field of specialised communication.

The specific aims of the Colloquium consist of:
- describing the development of new text types from the beginning of the literature on Ibero-Romance languages until the end of the 20th century;
- encouraging diachronic research as an instrument to discover and describe the creation and adaptation of new text types;
- studying the introduction of new text types into a scientific community through translation and fostering an interest for specialised translation and the problems that translators have faced throughout its history;
- researching the history and reception of specific text types and their transformation in the specialised target cultures;
- identifying the construction of new discursive traditions that come to be thanks to the development or the introduction of new text types in a given scientific community of one or many languages;
- identifying the specific processes and changes that occur in languages through the incorporation or creation of new text types;
- describing the syntactic-discursive behaviour and the argumentative lines of new established text types:
- studying and defining the concepts, terms and lexicon created or modified with the emergence of a new text type.

Languages: We welcome all Ibero-Romance languages and French.
