Media for All 9 will provide a platform for all stakeholders, from researchers and developers to analysts, audiences and business leaders to present their findings, developments, ideas and experiences from the multi-faceted world of audiovisual translation and media accessibility and to highlight in particular their technological, social, financial and academic impact. The conference will promote creative thinking and provide a forum for people to share knowledge and expand their horizons while demonstrating the true potential of multidisciplinary work. Media for All 9 will host participants representing all sectors with the explicit goal of exploring how collaborative approaches and methodologies as well as advances in technology and skillsets will transform the panorama of media accessibility and translation, and contribute to creating a society for all.
