2nd International Congress on Translation, Interpreting and Cognition
Interdisciplinarity: the Way out of the Box
4-6 July 2019, Germersheim, Germany

Call for Abstracts

After the first successful International Congress on Translation, Interpreting and Cognition held at the University of Mendoza, Argentina in 2017, we are delighted to announce the second conference in this series to be hosted by the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz in Germersheim. Cognitive aspects of the translation process have become a very active research area in recent years. The aim of the second International Congress on Translation, Interpreting and Cognition is to combine interdisciplinary aspects with multi-method approaches. We would like to encourage you to submit abstracts on the following topics:

Translation/interpreting, cognition, and
- behaviour
- training
- language processing
- technology and digitization
- multimedia
- ergonomics and usability
- emotions, self-concept and psychological factors
- revision and post-editing

The research for presentation should be empirical – in terms of methodology, we welcome a broad spectrum as well as mixed approaches, e.g. keylogging, eyetracking, brain imaging techniques and others.

If you would like to participate, please submit a two-page abstract (excl. references, Arial, 11pt, single-line spaced)
to the following email address: traco@uni-mainz.de

Submission deadline is 01 February 2019

If your abstract is accepted, we will provide you with the opportunity to submit a full paper before the conference (deadline: 01 June 2019). The reviewing process will partially be performed online via a crowdsourcing approach in addition to a more formal review process.
