    About the date Jul 15, 2010

    It's my first time attending to this kind of event, so I apology if this is a stupid question.

    It's clear that's going to be on September 30th, 2010 but what about the time the conference begins?

    Thank you.

    Hi Leslie,

    Does this mean the Conference takes 12 hours? Is there any schedule yet? Are there any breaks?

    Hi Walter -

    Great question! The conference will include sessions and panel discussions scheduled at specific times throughout the full 12 hour period with many items available on demand. The other aspects of the virtual environment: chat, networking, exhibit booths will be available all day.

    A schedule will be made available in the coming weeks so attendees will be able to plan their day accordingly.

    We look forward to seeing you at the event!

    Hi Aug 2, 2010

    Thanks for this great opportunity. I am sure it will be a wonderful and informative day. But being Sept. 30th, the World Translators' Day, can we expect for the maximum response and participation? Last year we were busy on organizing and conducting a powwow on that day.
