TAUS Annual Conference
Οκτώβριος 30 - Οκτώβριος 31
The TAUS Annual Conference is the once a year event where industry insiders and newcomers meet to get the pulse of the translation industry and discuss strategies and opportunities for collaboration. Focus is crucial. We come together to understand the issues, and where possible work on solutions. People attending the TAUS conference gain knowledge and valuable contacts. The themes discussed at the TAUS Annual Conference 2017 are the themes that really matter: people, technology, data, how we measure quality, the customer, machine translation, speech-to-speech and innovation.
Flow and Format of the Meeting
To stimulate the open and interactive atmosphere of the event the conference room is set up in cabaret style (round tables). The audience at the TAUS Annual Conference is capped at 120. In the mornings of both days we have plenary sessions with short presentations and Q&A sessions with the audience. In the afternoons of both days the audience splits up for more interactive sessions with panel discussions on the same topics. One group will stay in the classic conference room, the other group will go to the historical wooden-paneled library room. After the afternoon refreshment break everyone reconvenes for a continuation of the plenary session. The session leaders of the parallel tracks will give a short summary of the outcome of the discussions. A highlight at the conference is the TAUS Game Changer Innovation Award. On both afternoons the audience will be asked to select a winner from ten bright and innovative technology platforms for the translation industry.
Networking and establishing new business contacts is a key value at the TAUS events. Attendees are welcomed for coffee, juice and croissants to meet and greet people about a half hour before the conference program officially starts. The breaks and lunches all take place in the large conference room where everyone will have the opportunity to talk with everyone throughout the two days. On the Monday evening all participants are invited for a special evening with the TAUS Haus band in a characteristic old rock club downtown San Jose. And if you feel like it you can join in one of the jam sessions with your instrument or voice. See the next tabs for more information.
