New Keynote Speaker

By Aug.11, 2011

We are delighted to inform you that Mrs Yvonne Fowler has accepted  to give be a keynote speaker for the OCTIS conference on video link technology and its impact on interpreter-mediated court interaction.


Professor Francesco Straniero Sergio, Professor at the Scuola Superiore di Lingue Moderne per Interpreti e Traduttori (Advanced School of Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators), University of Trieste (Italy), passed away recently after a short period of illness.

Francesco was an outstanding scholar in the field of dialogue and media interpreting, an inspiration for interpreters and students alike, and a great friend to many.  He will be missed greatly.

The OCTIS II organising committee offer their condolences to Francesco’s family. At the conference we would like to mention with all due gratitude his limitless contributions on both levels, academic and human.
