Call for ATA Annual Conference Presentation Proposals February 17, 2012Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in ATA.
Better late than never. I had a computer virus that has had me out of commission for the last week. I am finally able to check my mailing list e-mails and am catching up… Once again I am at a loss on an interesting topic to present, so if anyone has a suggestion I am all ears.
The American Translators Association is now accepting presentation proposals for ATA’s 53rd Annual Conference in San Diego, California (October 24-27, 2012).
More than 1,800 translators, interpreters, educators, language services companies, and project managers are expected to attend this year’s Conference. Making a presentation to such a diverse audience is an excellent strategy to gain widespread recognition as a leader and expert in your field.
Speaking at an ATA Annual Conference is also a challenging and rewarding opportunity. A competitive peer-review process,with an emphasis on relevant topics in the translation and interpreting communities, is used to select presentations. The prestige of being accepted–as well as a discount on conference registration fees–is an unbeatable benefit of presenting.
Submissions are invited from all areas of translation and interpreting, including finance, law, medicine, literature, media, science and technology, terminology, independent contracting, business management, and training/pedagogy. Sessions may be language specific or general.

The deadline for submitting a presentation proposal is March 12, 2012.
