ASLIB - Call for Papers

Translating and the Computer 32 Conference
( 18-19 November 2010 in London)
This will be the thirty-second conference in the series. This event draws together a diverse group of delegates, who gain new insights and brainstorm ideas on the use of information technology for translation. In general, the areas looked at are:

       *   language resources exchange
       *   tools, technologies and standards
       *   web-based collaboration models
       *   translation process control
This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at the conference. Talks are slanted towards a practitioner's point of view, even when dealing with the latest product developments and theoretical research. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the user aspects of translation or translation-related software. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations are especially welcome. A list of possible topics appears below.
