[CFP] Third International Conference on Interpreting Quality
Third International Conference on Interpreting Quality
ICIQ3, the Third International Conference on Interpreting Quality, will be held in Granada, Spain, 5-7 October 2017.
This conference 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 standard interpreting settings (conferences, media and public services) as well as their variants (e.g. diplomacy, courts, conflicts and education), addressing both spoken and 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.
The submission deadline is April 30th 2017.

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

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.
Please note that upon submission, the Scientific Committee may suggest a format change or invite a participant to take part in one of the plenary debates included in the programme. 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.
