The 2016 EST congress to take place in Aarhus, Denmark

The University of Aarhus wins the 2016 EST Congress, announced at the General Meeting in Germersheim.

At the EST General Meeting on August 30, 2013, it was announced that the 8th EST congress will take place in Aarhus, Denmark. Professor Helle V. Dam, representing the Aarhus organizing committee, presented the superb venue and arrangements for the congress.

The congress will take place on 15-17 September 2016.

Aarhus is an ideal location for the congress. As the world’s “smallest big city”, it offers a full range of facilities within walking distance, including a number of hotel rooms that can easily accommodate a congress of 400 participants.

The Department of Business Communication at Aarhus University is home to a large and expanding group of active scholars who cover most areas of Translation Studies. The department has a long record of hosting international conferences and counts a number of experienced conference organizers among both its scholars and administrative staff.

The EST Executive Board has expressed a desire that the congress be limited to three days. A large number of participants can be catered for if shorter presentation formats are adopted, incorporating a number of pecha kucha presentations and posters. The organizers will encourage these shorter formats, with all participants receiving a certificate noting their “presentation”, without specification, so that they can seek reimbursement from their institutions.
