Call for Papers

All presentations should be based on research.

Papers are allotted 45-minute slots. It is up to the speaker to either give a short presentation (10 – 15 minutes) and use the remaining 30 minutes for discussion or give a longer presentation and leave only 15 minutes for discussion.

The preferred language for presentations is English with German and/or French as options.

Technical equipment including overhead projector, beamer and laptop will be available. Please contact the organising committee in case you have specific requirements.

Within the framework of this conference on 'Challenges of Multidimensional Translation' we especially welcome papers with a focus on the following domains:

1) Translation Methodology
2) Translating Culture
3) Media Translation
4) Technical Translation
5) New Forms of Interpreting

Guidelines for the Submission of Proposals for Papers:

Proposals for Papers (Short Abstracts)
Proposals for papers in short abstract form should not exceed 500 words (exclusive of references). They should contain the proposer’s name, affiliation, postal and e-mail address. When printed out, the title and body should fit on a single page of 12-point type, with a margin of 2 cm.

Abstract proposals must be received in electronic format (MS-Word, text or rtf files) at

no later than 28 February 2005

The abstract proposals will be evaluated by members of the scientific committee and proposers will be notified by 15th March 2005 if their proposal has been accepted.

Upon acceptance of an abstract proposal, speakers will be asked to submit an extended abstract. Extended abstracts will be made available to the conference participants before the conference to facilitate interaction and discussion during the conference.


Selected papers will be published. More information will be available in the 2nd circular.


Registration deadline is 1 March 2005. (On-line registration or download registration form)

A grant from the European Commission provides for financing the participation of eligible young researchers (registration, travel and accommodation - see EU-Scholarships for additional information.)
As the number of grants is limited, young scholars are encouraged to submit their registration as early as possible.

  • Inexpensive hotels         (50€)
  • Middle class hotels         (50-70€)

Please contact with your accommodation requirements and travel dates.
