The International Postgraduate Conference in Translation and Interpreting (IPCITI) is a collaborative project organised between Dublin City University, Heriot-Watt University, the University of Manchester and the University of Edinburgh. It is an annual three-day event designed to provide young researchers from all areas of translation and interpreting studies with the opportunity to share and discuss their research among peers in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment. It also allows them to participate in a significant international networking event for postgraduate students in translation and interpreting studies.
The aims of IPCITI are twofold: on the one hand, it seeks to promote greater participation in translation and interpreting research and address salient issues in the field; on the other, it hopes to foster a supportive environment in which young researchers can exchange ideas on current themes and issues in translation and interpreting studies.
Because the event is intended for all students from the discipline of translation and interpreting studies, it maintains a broad focus, with delegates invited to submit abstracts from all areas relating to translation and interpreting studies.
