Call for Workshops

  /  Call for Workshops

If you have a talent and expertise that the rest of the world should know about, Translation Village Carnivals are the perfect place to share.

Researchers, practitioners, individuals or groups  are invited to submit proposals for workshops at the Translation Village Carnival.

The purpose of workshops is to provide an environment for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas and discussing preliminary results.

Important Dates:

You can send your workshop proposal until 17 July 2018 in a brief outline of your workshop and the Organization Committee will inform you about the results. Please ensure that your workshop will fill at least 70 minutes session including Q&A.

Proposals should include:

  • The workshop name and a 150–200-word abstract describing the workshop, suitable for the carnival website;
  • A brief CV of each of the organizers including contact addresses and an identification of a single primary contact;
  • A short summary of the topic, scope and significance of the workshop, including a discussion on the relevance to 1st Translation Village Carnival concepts (please include information about past iterations of the workshop, if any);
  • Information about the procedure for selecting participants, plans for dissemination (for example, online proceedings, documents to be distributed to the participants, etc.), the expected number of participants, and the planned workshop format;

The scope is broad – simply tell us how your workshop could help someone to maximise her/his professional and social life experiences. The Organization Committee is particularly interested to hear your workshops, knowledge or insights on the following topics:


We’re looking for workshop proposals from translation experts on this important topic. For instance, what challenges do language service professionals face in the era of industry 4.0? How do you keep up with a fast-changing world of translation, technology and innovation? Which tools do we need to use?


Workshop proposals for this track should include solutions, case studies, and best practices that help people improve their technology knowledge and experience, thereby saving time and money.


Workshop proposals that are fun, interactive, engaging and providing a wide range of musical experience will all be welcomed. Workshops (such as rhythm workshops) on this track need to bring musical experiences together by focusing on groups of people who have little access to making music. Creation and performance of some artistic works at the end of workshops will be highly appreciated 🙂

Nature and Life

Workshop ideas that strengthen mindful self-awareness and relationships skills, mindfulness practices including well being in nature, mindful self-awareness for mindful listening, guided community challenge in nature, conflict, self-awareness.


Do you have another idea that will provide a clear benefit to attendees? If so, we want to hear from you!

Workshop proposals that incorporate a variety of instructional approaches (e.g. interactive discussion, hands-on exercises) and materials (e.g. slides, handouts, sample data) are strongly encouraged.

It couldn’t be easier to submit your proposal!
