The Congress offers many ways to interact and it is important to know and follow some basic guidelines about your role as a participant.  

Participation guide to the EST22 Congress

Onsite general audience

OsloMet (Andrea Arntzens hus building) will be the venue for the opening and closure of the Congress (June 22 and 25), and University of Oslo (Georg Sverdrups hus building) for the rest of days (June 23 and 24). Please see the practical info for transportation and other traveling topics.

Both venues have a Library and some other rooms available to work if you need it at any moment. 

Wi-Fi is available in all venues, and the use of "Eduroam" network is preferred. There is also the possibility of connecting via signing up in our "Guest OsloMet" and "Guest UiO" wifi networks while you are on campus from your laptop or smartphone. A third way would be to connect using the "Conferences" network at both campuses (you will need a password that we will share only with our participants via email).

It is highly recommended to attend entire panel sessions and to avoid changing the room between presentations of the panelists. Help keeping always a constructive attitude when discussing the topics.

There are participants with severe allergy to perfumes, please refrain from using them or at least do not use strong ones.

We are a huge group interacting together for several days. Enjoy, meet people, and at the same time be patient when necessary. We wish you all a fantastic Congress in Oslo!

Onsite presenters

Paper presenters

You will have 15 minutes to present your research. After all panelist presentations there will be around 30 minutes for general discussion where you will be able to answer questions and elaborate more on specific points of interest.

All rooms at our venues have a PC with Windows software for presentations (Power Point), a projector and a plastic blackboard (not the smart type) that can be used. For presentations, we recommend to use the PC in the room rather than your laptop, but there are also several HDMI and VGA plus audio connectors (not for Mac users, bring your own adapter!).

Please, be ready at your room around 5-8 minutes before your panel session starts if you would like to copy your presentation into the PC in the room. There will be someone who will help you if you need it.

In the case that a convener or moderator is not in the room when the panel session starts, the first presenter available according to the schedule will lead the panel immediately.

Room descriptions and details can be found here: Andrea Arntzens hus at OsloMet Georg Sverdrups hus at UiO (info only in Norwegian).

Poster presenters

Your poster can be exhibited along the day on June 22 in OsloMet (Andrea Spiseri hall area at Andrea Arntzens hus). You will have also the opportunity to discuss it that day during the poster session.

We suggest that you make a poster not bigger than A1 size (60x84 cms), any  orientation (vertical or horizontal) will work fine. You will have at your disposal a mobile surface of hard cardboard (90 by 200 cms) to place your poster. The use of "blu-tack" is recommended to fix the poster to the surface. 

Onsite conveners / moderators

Remember that all paper presenters will have 15 minutes to present their research. After all panelist presentations there will be around 30 minutes for general discussion where you will lead questions from the audience and help to keep an academic, constructive and equitable dialogue with everyone in the room.

We recommend avoiding (long) introductions on the presenters' profile so that everyone can enjoy enough time focusing on research presentations and discussion. Introducing the panel can take a couple of minutes. 

All rooms at our venues have a PC with Windows software for presentations (Power Point), a projector and a plastic blackboard (not the smart type) that can be used. For presentations, we recommend to use the PC in the room rather than your laptop, but there are also several HDMI and VGA plus audio connectors (not for Mac users, bring your own adapter!).

Please, be ready at your room around 5-8 minutes before your panel session starts to meet presenters. If a presenter fails, it is up to you to decide if everyone needs to wait the exact time to start with the next presenter or not. 

Room descriptions and details can be found here: Andrea Arntzens hus at OsloMet Georg Sverdrups hus at UiO (info only in Norwegian).

In the case that there are virtual presentations associated thematically to your panel, it is totally up to you to open the panel session via zoom for them so that they can listen to the onsite panelists and participate after in the discussion. In this case, conveners are responsible for keeping in touch with interested virtual presenters and open a zoom room that will be shared only with them.

Virtual presenters

Those who decide to participate virtually in the EST22 Oslo Congress will deliver a video presentation that will be published and shared two weeks before the Congress starts. Only presenters with a paper/poster or/and panel conveners are allowed to participate virtually in a video presentation. Please see details on how virtual presentations should be done.

The onsite congress will not be streamed (except onsite guest lectures), but there are different ways to interact for virtual presenters:

Comments and discussion on videorecordings

All videos will contain a comment box where you can receive and leave your comments (you will need to sign up as a WebID user as required by our University).

Q&A zoom session for our virtual participants

As a part of the pre-congress activities, a Q&A zoom session for our virtual participants will take place on June 17, 2-4pm (Oslo time zone) in our zoom room for EST22 Oslo events.

During that session, we will have 30 minutes to discuss our virtual guest speaker's recorded talk by Laura Spoturno, and then we would open 4 thematic break ourooms in order to discuss some of the virtual presentations with their authors until the session ends.

Group 1. Interpreting

Group 2. Translation and the professions

Group 3. Audio visual translation and digital technologies

Group 4. Literature and Translation Studies

Those who are conveners and/or virtual presenters are invited to register their participation in this session, indicating the group in which they want to participate. The event will be also open to the rest of participants at the EST Congress, but we have set a maximum of 250 participants in total.

Please complete this form before June 1, 2022 to register your participation (there is a maximum of 250 online seats available).

Online participation during onsite panels

In the case that your presentation is associated thematically to a specific thematic panel, conveners are responsible for opening the panel session via zoom for you so that you can listen the onsite panelists and participate after in the discussion. Conveners are responsible to keep in touch with any interested virtual presenters and open a zoom room that will be only shared with them.

Social Networks

We have open official accounts in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

The hashtag to be used is #EST22Oslo

Please, feel free to use Twitter for promoting and discussing topics relevant to this EST Congress. Instagram was created so that you can share your photos of the entire experience both in the EST Congress and Oslo!
