CALL FOR PAPERS - Conference on Respeaking, Rome, 12 June 2015

Translator Training Event - Sarajevo, November 2015

A Translator Training Event jointly organised by International Burch University in cooperation with the University of Sarajevo, University of Tuzla, the Association for Applied Linguistics in Bosnia and Herzegovina and IATIS will be held in Sarajevo on 19 -20 November 2015.

Registration details and programme to follow.

Accommodation

The Local Organising Committee of the V IATIS Conference has made arrangements to provide accommodation offers to conference participants. Although limited in number, the accommodation options selected by the Local Organising Committee have taken into account two different locations, Savassi and Pampulha (see descriptions below), and a reasonable price range for Brazilian standards.

SAVASSI is a neighbourhood close to downtown Belo Horizonte, located approximately 12km from the UFMG Campus. Originally, a residential neighbourhood until the 1970s, it is now thriving with cafés, restaurants and situated within walking distant to the cultural circuit of Praça da Liberdade and Palácio das Artes with several options for cultural and evening entertainment.

PAMPULHA is a neighbourhood in the vicinity of the UFMG Campus and ideally located to those who want to avoid travelling back and forth between the hotel and the conference site. However, one should bear in mind that options for cultural and evening entertainment are rather limited around this neighbourhood.

Prices for all hotels include breakfast and daily transfers between the accommodation site and the conference venue, both in the morning (hotel/UFMG) and in the evening (UFMG/hotel)

To take advantage of the special rates arranged by the Local Organising Committee, accommodation must be booked directly per e-mail. Further information is available at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Here are the options:

ACCOMMODATION AROUND SAVASSI

Hotel Mercure Lourdes

Distance to UFMG: 10 km. Strategically located on Avenida do Contorno, one of Belo Horizonte's main arterial roads, the hotel is close to bars, restaurants and major city attractions. It offers all the comfort and facilities one needs for a conference trip. Start the day off with a delicious breakfast served from 6am, and enjoy the variety of services provided. Shuttle service included: Hotel/UFMG/Hotel

Daily rate: single, R$306,00 – double, R$330,00

ACCOMMODATION AROUND PAMPULHA

Pampulha - Soft Inn Hotel

Distance to UFMG: 3,6 km. The hotel has 170 rooms spread over 16 floors and offers free wi-fi and free parking. Soft Food, a new concept in restaurant and convenience store, open 24/7, features as main attraction of the services provided by the Soft Inn Hotel. Rooms are equipped with LCD TV, minibar, air conditioning, workbench and private bathrooms with free amenities. Shuttle service included: Hotel/UFMG/Hotel

Daily rate: single, R$190,00 – double, R$222,00 – triple, R$254,00

Insurance coverage in case of cancellation

INSURANCE COVERAGE

Participants are strongly advised to take out an insurance policy to cover travel, accommodation and registration costs in case they have to cancel participation in the conference. There are plenty of insurance companies that cover not only cancellation costs for travel and accommodation but also for conference registration fees. Although this may increase your expense from the outset (by around 5%), it allows you to safely take advantage of the early-bird registration fee and to benefit from early-booked and non-cancellable airplane tickets and/or accommodation deals. Bear aware that most of these insurance coverages must be contracted on the very day you do the actual payment of your flight.

The Local Organising Committee leaves it up to delegates to compare insurances deals by themselves and opt out the possibility of recommending one or another. Delegates are welcome to use the conference Facebook page to share tips on accommodation, insurance and travel deals.
