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; any deviations should be checked in advance with the conference organisers.

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

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

1) Subtitling (including live subtitling and subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing)
2) Dubbing
3) Media Translation and Interpretation
4) Theory and Practice of Polysemiotic Translation
