Call for Papers

Submissions have now closed. Keep an eye out for our conference programme out soon!

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.

Session Styles

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.

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.

You are welcome to present in a different language, but you will need to organise your own interpreters in that case.
