The emergence of new technologies, global hyperconnectivity and the mushrooming of on-demand services means that an abundance of audiovisual content is available through diverse media around the clock. The growing volume of content is being shared and distributed via more channels than ever before and it is reaching wider, more diverse audiences. As a result, we are witnessing an ever increasing demand for a personalised user experience and speakers of different languages, as well as consumers with visual or hearing impairments, expect that this wealth of information be made accessible to them. These rapidly changing mediascapes raise the question: How can the industry remain agile and respond to this surging market demand?

At the 11th Languages & The Media, the International Conference on Language Transfer for Audiovisual Media, broadcasters, researchers, language practitioners, translators, interpreters, software developers and all those who produce, market or distribute audiovisual materials for information, entertainment or educational purposes will come together from all parts of the world to address issues on how to thrive in this dynamic mediascape.

Join the conference for the unique opportunity to voice your opinion and share experiences with your international peers.

The call for proposals will be open until April 30, 2016 (see the flyer)
