Short Description: Second Call for Abstracts

We are pleased to announce the fifth International Postgraduate Conference in Translation and Interpreting (IPCITI 2009) which will take place at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, on 21-22 November 2009.

Conference Aims
This two-day conference is designed to give translation and interpreting postgraduates from ALL research areas an opportunity to present and discuss their research in an informal and intellectually stimulating setting.

IPCITI 2009 is the fifth in a series of postgraduate conferences which marks the consolidation of a series of international conferences organised in collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, Dublin City University, the University of Manchester and Heriot-Watt University. The aim of IPCITI 2009 is to promote greater participation in translation and interpreting research and address salient issues in the field, and to provide a supportive environment in which new researchers can exchange ideas on current themes and issues in Translation Studies.

Because our event is intended for all students from the discipline of translation and interpreting studies, we have chosen to keep it widely focused so that ALL postgraduate students of translation and interpreting are invited to submit abstracts from ALL areas relating to translation and interpreting studies. However, the event is open to anyone who is interested to learn more about Translation Studies and Interpreting Studies!
