The TC conference takes the form of peer-reviewed presentations and posters and features panel discussions and workshops.
Contributions are invited on any topic related to the technologies used in translation and interpreting, including, but not limited to translation environment and interpreting tools:
AsLing invites proposals for original unpublished papers and posters, as well as workshop and discussion panel proposals. Papers and posters may report on research, commercial translation and interpretation products or user experience, and should fit in one of the following four categories:
Papers and posters may report on research, commercial translation and interpretation products or user experiences. Workshop reports should describe the outcome of what was achieved.
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract (maximum of 750 words) of the paper they would like to present, together with a short 200-word abstract. A short biography and photos of all authors is also requested.
Although the extended abstract is limited to 750 words (longer papers will NOT be considered), it should provide sufficient information to allow evaluation of the submission by the programme committee.
The short abstracts, bios and photos of accepted papers will be used in the online programme and event advertising.
Camera-ready versions of the accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings with an assigned ISBN number, subject to the presenter having duly registered for the conference. Their length should not exceed 5,000 words.
Proposers are invited to submit an extended abstract of their poster not exceeding 750 words, together with a short 200-word version along with a short biography and photos of all authors for dissemination purposes. Camera-ready versions of the accepted posters will be published in the conference e-proceedings with an assigned ISBN number, subject to the presenter having duly registered for the conference. Their length should not exceed 2,000 words.
Workshop proposals are limited to 750 words. They should describe the topic/goal of the workshop and provide an outline of how the proposed workshop will be structured. Proposers should also submit a 200-word version as well as a short biography and photos of all authors and moderators for dissemination purposes.
The Conference website will provide formatting guidelines in the form of Word and LaTeX stylesheets. Academic papers and posters will be expected to adhere strictly to these guidelines. Papers relating to user experiences or other non-academic presentations will be permitted greater freedom. As papers on workshops will only be completed after the end of the conference, details of their format will be worked out with the moderators later in the year.
Proposals should be submitted via the START conference submission system: Closed. Link removed. The system provides distinct submission pages for the following categories of submissions:
o Regular submission
o Non-academic submission
o Poster or short presentation
Presenters who cannot use START system, or prefer not to do so, have the option to submit their proposals and the requested documents (200 words short abstract, 750 words extended abstract, short biography and photo) directly by emailing submissions(at)asling.org.
