CALL FOR PAPERS
XXI FIT World Congress, 3-5 August 2017, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
The theme of the XXI FIT World Congress is Disruption and Diversification.
The emphasis of the congress in 2017 will be on issues relating to disruption and diversification in all the fields of translation and interpreting. The 2017 congress will highlight the impacts of technology, globalisation, policy and economic change on the delivery of language services, with specific streams for indigenous and sign languages, interpreting in conflict zones, community interpreting and translation, and literary translation. Presenting at the FIT World Congress 2017 offers a valuable opportunity to meet members of the Translation and Interpreting professionals, academics, service providers and other stakeholders.
FIT invites all those interested – practitioners, academics, students, agencies, software makers and policy makers, accreditation bodies, and buyers of services -to submit proposals for papers/posters dealing with the following session themes:
Your submitted outline paper will be blind reviewed by an international panel of academics and practitioners. Programme selections are based on the scores and comments of those reviewers. Decisions will be announced in early January 2017, by email directly to the author(s), and subsequently uploaded to the program on the congress website. Please email email@example.com if you do not hear from us by 30 January 2017.
The factors that determine whether a paper is accepted are the level of potential interest, the overall quality of presentation, and its relevance to the audience. To that effect, it is advisable that you:
Commercial content won’t be accepted for presentations or posters. However, this type of material is welcomed at the trade exhibition or perhaps in the business forum.
Proceedings will be published by AUSIT in electronic format. There will be a call for papers for a refereed publication after the congress.
Every presenter (platform, poster, workshop and panel) is required to register as a paying delegate and attend the congress. Presenters are responsible for their own travel and accommodation expenses. Presenters who do not register before 1st April 2017 will be replaced.
Invitation letters to be presented to the Australian diplomatic missions overseas for the purpose of obtaining a visa to Australia can be obtained on request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
