The Symposium invites proposals for research from a variety of disciplinary frameworks that address topics in signed language interpretation and translation. Proposals may be submitted as either presentations or posters. Presentations will be 25 minutes in length including questions. Posters will be presented at a designated two-hour time block during the Symposium.
