Call for Papers
In an increasingly globally connected interpreting profession, SLIANZ invites you to strengthen connections close to home and forge new links at our 2024 face-to-face conference.
We welcome paper proposals that reflect on the past, present and future of interpreting and that highlight the good things that have been happening in our ‘neighbourhood’ – the diverse Deaf and interpreter communities in Aotearoa New Zealand and our Pasifika and global neighbours.
- Deaf / hearing partnerships
- Interpreter training
- Interpreters and Te Ao Māori
- Practical skill development
- Tools for the interpreter toolkit

We invite proposals for both practical and theoretical presentations, panels, and interactive workshops. Conference attendance will be face-to-face and not streamed, but there may be scope for online presentations.
- Presentations will be 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for questions.
- Panels and workshops will be 60 minutes
We are open to alternative session formats. Please contact the conference committee if you would like to discuss how your session could fit into the conference programme, or if you would like other support to prepare your proposal.
Conference proposals / abstracts
Please submit your proposal / abstract either in:
- written English (up to 250 words);
- NZSL (up to 3 minutes long and uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo)
Send your abstract to: email@example.com
Deadline: 1st March 2024
Confirmation: We will let you know by Friday 5th April 2024 if your proposal is accepted and what the next steps will be.
The conference languages will be English and NZSL, and interpreters will be provided.
You are welcome to present in a different language, but you will need to organise your own interpreters in that case.
