3-5 September: The 8th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education takes place at the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria. The conference focuses on three key aspects of gender equality policies in higher education: (1) Reducing vertical and horizontal segregation - reasons for underrepresentation of women in STEM and in top positions as well as related successful policies; why is segregation so difficult to overcome? How to address men to increase their share in academic fields where women are the overwhelming majority? (2) Tackling the gendered organisation - how to develop new working cultures in academia; Why is it so difficult to change seemingly 'objective' and gender-neutral practices? How to deal with resistance? (3) Integrating gender dimensions in teaching curricula, teacher education, research funding and research practice. What are the barriers to considering gender in a comprehensive way? How to communicate gender competence adequately? How can innovation be driven by considering gender? The European Network on Gender Equality in Higher Education was established in 1998 by the University of Helsinki. It links together over 500 hundred practitioners, researchers, teachers and administrators from over 30 countries in Europe and beyond, interested in international exchange around gender equality issues in higher education and research.

As the flow of content increases, so does demand for translation – dubbing, subtitling, voiceover, subtitling for the deaf and audio description. Technology plays an important part in trying to catch up with these changes; developments in machine translation, cloud storage, digital television and voice recognition, among others, have had wide-reaching ramifications for the media and translation sectors with users across the world having easy access to sophisticated technologies and expecting instantaneous results. The conference brings together researchers, language practitioners, translators, interpreters, software developers and those who produce, market or distribute audio visual materials for information, entertainment or educational purposes to discuss whether small technologies are leading to smart translations.
