Brisbane and Online
It is a pleasure to invite you to this year’s hybrid AUSITNational Conference to be held in Brisbane on 25-26 November 2022. The conference will take place at the beautiful campus of the University of Queensland, as well as online.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Rebuild and Belong: Evolution, Transformation and Growth’. It aims to offer participants a forum to discuss practical and theoretical issues relating to the T&I profession across a variety of different areas, focusing on rebuilding and re-connecting after two long years of dealing with the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The Organising Committee (OC) is calling for the submission of abstracts for papers from a wide variety of interdisciplinary theoretical and practical perspectives. Submissions are organised into the following sub-themes:
- Cultivating connections with colleagues – the power of comradery, and team building;
- Self-growth – issues affecting practitioners and their businesses (mental health, adapting, professional skills, ethics and values, new mindset and new focus);
- Joining forces with other professions – new opportunities, relationships between T&I practitioners and professional end-users;
- Engaging with the community – current issues affecting community translation and interpreting;
- Innovation in the world – the T&I industry in the post-pandemic world, accessibility, new technologies and new advances.
