Audio description seminar calls for papers

Wednesday, 14 May 2014 10:47am

The 5th Advanced Research Seminar on Audio Description (ARSAD) will be held in Barcelona on 19-20 March, 2015, and organisers are calling on experts and researchers in the field to submit papers for it.

The seminar, which was first held in 2007, is organised by the TransMedia Catalonia Research Group and the EU project HBB4ALL (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband For All) and is partially funded by the Spanish government. It “aims to bring together practitioners and researchers in order to advance the knowledge of current Audio Description (AD) practices and research”.

The topics which can be covered in presentations include the theoretical aspects of AD, AD practises and guidelines, cultural issues and user experiences of AD. Presentations can be either 20 minutes or 10 minutes long, followed by discussions.

For more information, go to the ARSAD website.

The next Audio Description Project Conference, the US equivalent of ARSAD, will be held in Las Vegas in June.
