IPCITI 2013 is pleased to announce the call for papers, for the Ninth International Postgraduate Conference in Translation and Interpreting, to be hosted at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh – Scotland, from the 14th to the 16th of November 2013.

The International Postgraduate Conference in Translation and Interpreting (IPCITI) is a collaborative project organised between Dublin City University, Heriot-Watt University, the University of Manchester and the University of Edinburgh. It is an annual three-day event designed to provide young researchers from all areas of translation and interpreting studies with the opportunity to share and discuss their research among peers in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment. It also allows them to participate in a significant international networking event for postgraduate students in translation and interpreting studies.

Conference Aims

The aims of IPCITI 2013 are twofold: on the one hand, it seeks to promote greater participation in translation and interpreting research and address salient issues in the field; on the other, it hopes to foster a supportive environment in which young researchers can exchange ideas on current themes and issues in translation and interpreting studies.

Because the event is intended for all research students from the discipline of translation and interpreting studies, it maintains a broad focus, with delegates invited to submit abstracts from all areas relating to translation and interpreting studies.
