The 3rd Swiss Conference on Barrier-free Communication will be held on 5-6 June 2020 at the School of Applied Linguistics of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) in Winterthur, Switzerland.

This is the third and final conference being held as part of the project entitled "Proposal and implementation of a Swiss research centre for barrier-free communication" (2017-2020), the main goal of which is to ensure access to higher education for people with visual, hearing or temporary cognitive impairments. The project, which is a cooperation between the Institute of Translation and Interpreting of the ZHAW and the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting of the University of Geneva, is funded by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) and is supported by the Swiss University Conference.

The 1st Swiss Conference on Barrier-free Communication was held on 15-16 September 2017 in Winterthur, Switzerland. It aimed to offer both a theoretical and an empirical perspective on the state of the art in the field (cf. BfC 2017 Proceedings). One year later, the second edition of the conference, which took place in Geneva, Switzerland, on 9-10 November 2018, further explored accessibility in educational settings (cf. BfC 2018 Proceedings).

Building on the 2017 and 2018 events, the 2020 conference sets out to provide a wider international forum to discuss most recent progress and future challenges in barrier-free communication. The conference will be centred on all aspects of the field, focusing in particular on novel research findings and emerging disciplines, such as interlingual live-subtitling, live-subtitling into easy-to-read language and text-to-sign interpreting by deaf interpreters.

We invite researchers, academics, practitioners and members of the target groups to submit proposals related (but not limited) to the following topics:

    Audio Description and Audio Introduction
    Easy-to-read and Plain Language
    Live-subtitling via keyboard and Respeaking
    Web Accessibility
    Sign Language
    Community Interpreting
