The Asian-Pacific Forum on Translation and Intercultural Studies (APFTIS) was established in 2011. Since then it has been hosted by a number of prestigious universities around the world, including Tsinghua University, Melbourne University, SOAS University of London, Durham University, Hawaii University, UC Berkley.

This year's forum to be held at University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) aims to gather students, educators, researchers and practitioners in the translation and interpreting (T&I) and intercultural studies fields to present their research and exchange perspectives on current trends across disciplines. Translation and interpreting studies is developing vigorously and new approaches and methodologies are emerging. The interrelations between translation and literature have the potential to inspire interdisciplinary studies including intercultural studies, comparative literature studies and globalization studies. Besides, this new era of globalization has witnessed the burgeoning translation and interpreting technology and services in various fields: business and commerce, medicine, law, community services and etc. It is our hope that this forum will provide a platform for dialogues and discussions that will facilitate further interdisciplinary studies in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

We look forward to welcoming you to UNSW Sydney Kensington Campus, Sydney, Australia.
