Call for Presentations for the 2018 OTTIAQ Conference
OTTIAQ (Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec) is accepting proposals for presentations at its upcoming annual conference, to be held on Friday, November 23, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Montréal’s Palais des congrès.
The annual conference is OTTIAQ’s marquee event. It is attended by hundreds of language professionals, students, and others experts in translation, terminology, and interpretation. OTTIAQ is the largest body of language professionals in Canada and the authority in translation, terminology, and interpretation in Québec.
Please note that the period to propose a presentation is now closed. The conference program committee thanks everyone who expressed interest and proposed a presentation. The selected presentations shall be announced shortly.
For 2018, the Conference Program Committee is seeking proposals on the following theme:
Human Relations in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
In this age of artificial intelligence and digital everything, industries and professions are undergoing a sea change. The language professions are no exception. How are language professionals reacting to these changes? Do they feel powerless and threatened or do they see them in a positive light?
For the 2018 conference, we would like to begin reflecting from a professional and personal perspective on the fundamental issues raised by this new reality. Hands-on sessions will complement this reflection process to help language professionals—whether they work freelance or hold salaried positions—to adopt best practices in their work environment and be equipped to grasp the issues, know where they stand, and face the future with confidence.
Here are some questions that should give food for thought:
Partial list of sought-after speakers/lecturers
Please note that priority will be given to hands-on sessions.
One hour (60 min.) is allotted for each presentation. The Conference Program Committee reserves the right to accept or refuse any proposal without having to justify its decision.
As per its policy, OTTIAQ will cover the registration costs for one (1) speaker per proposal on the day of the conference. The Conference Program Committee may also agree, at its discretion, to cover registration for a second person.
