[CFP] 7th IATIS Conference: The Cultural Ecology of Translation

 IATIS 7th International Conference

Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain

14 – 17 September 2021

The Cultural Ecology of Translation

Conference moved to September 2021 and revised Call for Papers

1) New dates of the conference: 14-17 September 2021

Our Conference has been forced to search for alternative dates given the important changes in the 2021 calendar for big events in Barcelona. Now, Barcelona’s biggest international conference, Mobile World Congress (MWC), has moved its dates (from February) to coincide exactly with those of our original program. Accordingly, all conference-worthy hotels have blocked their bookings for MWC only, making it impossible for us to expect IATIS Conference attendees to find accommodation for 29th June to 2nd July in Barcelona.

Because of this unfortunate and unforeseen change of scenario we have reprogrammed the Conference dates to 14th-17th September, 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you understand we did not want to impose a fully online conference, aware as we are that our community needs to reunite face-to-face.

2) Deadline extension: new deadlines

In accordance with the new dates there is an extended period for Submitting Abstracts and for Registration: 30 November 2020

Key Deadlines: Here

Submitting a proposal: Instructions here

3) Conference mode of delivery

The Organizing Committee is committed to offering an onsite Conference but given the difficulties some of you may experience in being present on campus, we are switching to a hybrid mode of delivery, allowing for remote attendance or on-site attendance.

However, on-site attendance will only be available for delegates who are scheduled to speak at the conference; remote attendance will only be available to some speaker-participants (priority given to to speakers with travel restrictions).

This is because the Organizing Committee intends to strike a balance between the need to encourage face-to-face, on-site interaction, the need to accommodate for people’s travel restrictions and the obligation to ensure social distancing and any other safety and health regulations applicable at the time of the conference.

Registration fees have been updated accordingly: HERE
