Inhotim is home to a museological complex featuring a series of pavilions and galleries with works of art and sculptures on display in the open air.

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)
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
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.
Multilingual and multimodal forms of interaction, prompted by material and symbolic exchanges in our increasingly globalized world, have brought new challenges to translation and intercultural studies. New technologies in the broadest sense of the word are sought by society in order to allow for a diversity of meanings to be created, exchanged, and disseminated on the basis of equality, complementarity and reciprocity. In this scenario, studies promoting and seeking innovation play a fundamental role in providing insights and solutions to meet those challenges.
The theme of the conference – ‘Innovation Paths in Translation and Intercultural Studies’ – is meant to foster exchanges and discussions on the topic.
Within the scope of IATIS 2015, innovation is understood in its broadest sense and includes not only new technological developments but also other relevant aspects, such as social and cultural innovation, including all forms of innovation which lead to changes in interactions and practices in translation and intercultural studies.

ARNT LYKKE JAKOBSEN
is professor of translation and translation technology at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). He taught English literature at Copenhagen University from 1972 to 1985, where he developed an interest in translation. In 1985, after joining CBS, his interest in translation became more oriented towards international business communication and translation technology. He developed the first version of Translog, a key-logging software, in 1995. Subsequent versions of the program have been a key technology in a wide range of experiments, including two major EU research projects, the Eye-to-IT and the CASMACAT projects. In 2005, Arnt Jakobsen established CRITT, the CBS Centre for Research and Innovation in Translation and Translation Technology, which he directed until 2014. CRITT’s main focus of research has been on developing and exploiting a methodology for translation process research using keylogging and eyetracking. Arnt Jakobsen was appointed CETRA professor for 2014.
is Senior Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield, UK, where she is a member of the Natural Language Processing research group. Her research focuses on machine translation, with special emphasis on automatic evaluation and estimation of translation quality and on ways of making machine translation more useful to end-users such as professional translators. She is currently involved in various projects on machine translation, including the European initiatives QTLaunchPad (breaking quality barriers in machine translation) and EXPERT (empirical methods for machine translation), and the UK project Modist (discourse modelling for machine translation). Before joining the University of Sheffield in 2012, she was Senior Lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton, UK (2010-2011), and research engineer at the Xerox Research Centre, France (2008-2009). She received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of São Paulo, Brazil, in 2007.
is Director of the Centre for Translation Studies at the University of Surrey. Her research focuses on new modalities of interpreting and translation, especially videoconference-based and remote interpreting, which is used increasingly to deliver interpreting services in business and public service contexts, and audio description, a growing media access service for blind and partially sighted people and a new modality of intersemiotic translation. Sabine Braun has led, and participated in, several multinational European projects relating to videoconferencing and legal interpreting. Furthermore, she is also interested in the use of methods and new technologies in interpreter education and currently leads a European consortium which develops and evaluates a dedicated 3D virtual reality environment to simulate interpreting practice. Sabine Braun teaches Interpreting Studies and Applied Linguistics, and has developed several MA programmes in interpreting at the University of Surrey.
is Associate Professor in translation studies in the Department of Linguistics and Language Practice at the University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, in South Africa. He is also the Programme Director for the Language Practice Programme. His research is aimed at providing a conceptual framework for linking translation and development, focusing on the African context in which he works. Combining a philosophy of complexity with semiotics and biosemiotics, he is working towards a semiosic response theory of development. He is a founding member of the Summer School for Translation Studies in Africa of which the fourth meeting will be held in 2016. His recent book, Translation theory and development studies: A complexity theory approach, won the University of the Free State Prize for Distinguished Scholarship.
