      Dear All,

      (Apologies for cross-posting.)

      Just a note to say that the website for the Dublin City University Postgraduate Translation Studies Conference is now up and running and can be accessed at http://www.ctts.dcu.ie/pg-conference.htm . For those of you thinking of submitting abstracts, we'd suggest that you first take a look at the 'Guidelines for Submitting Abstracts' page on the site. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 22nd 2005, and applicants will be informed of whether their abstracts have been accepted by February 5th.

      More news regarding the conference is that we have now confirmed another guest speaker for the event: Jin Di, the renowned translation theorist and translator of the first Chinese edition of James Joyce's Ulysses. Prof. Jin will be in Dublin to be conferred with honorary membership of the Irish Translators' and Interpreters' Association, and all conference delegates are also invited to attend his conferment (and free wine reception!) at the Irish Writers' Centre, 19 Parnell Square, Dublin 1 on the evening of March 31st (the day before the start of the conference). Again, more details are available on the website.

      Best wishes on behalf of the organising committee and looking forward to seeing you in Dublin,

      John Kearns

        United Nations Opens Official Document System (ODS) to
        General Public
        as of 31 December 2004

        The United Nations has announced the availability of
        ODS to the
        public in the following press release:
        http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2004/pi1631.doc.htm
        The new public
        ODS system can be accessed at
        http://documents.un.org The new site has a redesigned
        home page where
        users will not be required to log in.

        Comprehensive coverage starts in 1993. Older United
        Nations documents
        are added to the system on a daily basis. Selective
        coverage of
        General Assembly and Security Council documentation
        currently reaches
        back to 1985. The ODS also provides access to the
        resolutions of the
        General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and
        Social Council and
        the Trusteeship Council from 1946 onwards. Currently,
        the ODS
        contains close to 800,000 files and approximately
        100,000 new
        documents are added each year. Users may take
        advantage of the ODS
        benefits such as: quick access to valuable United
        Nations official
        documents, easy-to-use search functionality,
        easy-to-print PDF
        documents and user-friendly design. An ODS Training
        Guide is posted
        at: http://www.un.org/Depts/dhl/resguide/train.htm.
