JubilaTIon 25
AUSIT Biennial Conference

December 1-3, 2012
Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia


Call for Papers:

Submission Deadline for abstracts: 6 April, 2012

2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the Australian Institute of
Interpreters and Translators Incorporated (AUSIT). Over the past 25
years, AUSIT has made a significant contribution to improving the
professional practice of translating and interpreting in Australia. On
the occasion of this biennial conference, we aim to celebrate those
achievements and build on the successes of the past.

Proposals for individual papers, workshops and posters are invited from
both translation and interpreting scholars and practising translators
and interpreters. Abstracts should be 250 words for individual papers
and posters and 500 words for workshops. Presentations on all aspects of
translation and interpreting studies are welcome. However, priority will
be given to papers that address the following themes which focus on
drawing inspiration from the past for a brighter future in T & I:

• Innovative practice in translation and interpreting
• Innovative pedagogies for translator and interpreter education
• Innovative practices in the assessment of translators and interpreters
• Innovations in the implementation of language policy for improved
service provision
• Innovations in research trends in translation and interpreting studies

Proposals are invited for the following types of presentation:
• Papers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation plus 10 minutes
for discussion.
• Workshops will be allocated 1.5 hours.
• Posters will be allocated a special session, when the presenters will
have the opportunity to discuss their work. The posters will then remain
on display for the rest of the conference.

To submit a proposal for the AUSIT 2012 Conference, please use our
online form.

Important dates:
Deadline for abstract submission: 6 April 2012
Abstracts reviewed and rated from 6 April to 18 May 2012
Notification to authors of acceptance: after 22 May 2012
Conference: 1-3 December 2012

Advice to proposal writers:
Please ensure that you address all or most of the following criteria:
• The purpose of the presentation is clearly stated.
• The topic is focused and thus appears to fit in within the relatively
short time allotted to it.
• For research papers: the method/approach, data and results (if
applicable) are clearly defined and implications/relevance of the
findings are briefly noted (main target audience).
• For papers about professional practice: the issues discussed should be
clearly identified as arising from particular professional situations
and should clearly identify implications or relevance for practice,
policy or T&I performance.
• The length guideline is carefully adhered to (neither very
short/sketchy nor too long).
• The quality of the presentation is apparent from the abstract.
• Preference will be given to presentations that reflect the themes of
the conference.
