Announcement

Introduction

We are pleased to announce ICIQ3, the Third International Conference on Interpreting Quality, which will be held in the city of Granada, Spain, on 5, 6 and 7 October 2017.

ICIQ3 is intended as a platform for fruitful dialogue on interpreting quality. It will bring together a variety of perspectives and promote exchange at different levels:

  • At the Academia/Profession interface: between professionals, trainers and researchers
  • Intradisciplinary: between interpreting researchers focusing on various settings and modalities, such as conferences and public services, and spoken as well as signed languages
  • Interdisciplinary: between interpreting researchers and scholars from other sciences (e.g. translation, linguistics, lexicography, musicology, psychology, sociology, library science and statistics, among others)

The conference will address a number of topics, including, but not limited to the following: quality criteria in different interpreting settings, user expectations and needs, quality perception and quality measurement, quality assurance in the interpreting process, nonprofessional interpreting, method transfer across disciplines.

ICIQ3 welcomes contributions on interpreting quality from a broad research spectrum. Participants are invited to share their knowledge from a research, training or professional perspective. Some suggestions for specific topics can be found above, in the “Introduction” section.

Formats

Scholars and professionals are welcome to submit abstracts for presentation in one of the following formats:

  • Poster: When designing your poster, try to emphasise visual elements and to make the text readable by a small group of people from a reasonable distance. There will be a prize for the best poster. During the poster session, the respective authors are expected to be available for questions from other participants.
  • Oral presentation: Each speaker will be assigned 20 minutes, consisting of a short presentation (15 min max.) and at least 5 minutes of discussion. There will be additional time for discussion in each themed session. To provide equal opportunities to all participants, scheduled time will be enforced strictly.

Submission guidelines

During the online submission process, you will be asked to specify which of the two options (poster or oral presentation) you prefer. A participation certificate will be issued to every contributor, regardless of presentation format.

Abstracts must comply with the following guidelines:

  • Length: 400 words max., references excluded.
  • Eligible languages: English, French, German and Spanish. Participants wishing to use a signed language are kindly requested to contact the organisers.
