| 0 comments

The ATA Conference is always a huge event with many parallel activities. All attendees should know that having a game plan is better than just drifting through the sessions. With so much going on, you might feel lost and simply miss presentations that are right up your alley.

We have prepared this PLD Highlights Guide that you can adapt and expand. It is by no means exhaustive, but we hope it’s helpful for those interested in the Portuguese Language Division. The full schedule is on the Conference website. This schedule is subject to change, so stay tuned.


SPECIAL EVENT – LEWIS GALANTIÈRE AWARD

This year, the Lewis Galantière Award will be awarded to Katrina Dodson for her translation into English of the Complete Stories of Clarice Lispector from Brazilian Portuguese. It is an honor and a joy to see literature in Portuguese be recognized abroad thanks to this very talented translator. Let’s all show her our support. Venue and time TBD.


IMPORTANT GENERAL TIPS

Conference App ― Only registered attendees can access the app. Once you register, you will receive your username and password. If you have already registered for the conference, download the conference app here. Remember to complete your profile and upload your résumé before traveling to San Francisco. The app is a great way to navigate the conference because you can create your own schedule and connect to people. It allows you to find out about last-minute changes, view handouts and take notes.

Social media ― If you are using social media, use hashtag #ata57 for the general conference, and #pldata57 for your get-togethers with PLD members. We would love to see pictures! Our colleagues who are not attending this year will thank you for making a little bit of the conference available for them. And to find out more, follow @pld_ata and @atanet on Twitter.

Zumba ― Did you know that you can start your day with zumba? PLD member Cris Silva is the zumba instructor! Thursday to Saturday, 6:15 am – 7:15 am

Having fun ― We have a specific Facebook Group for the conference, so everybody can communicate easily. Also, check out the city guide.
