Hello, Translators! We’ve been away for a bit, but we’re back and extremely excited to announce that the application period for TED Translators Passes to TED2020 is now open. The flagship conference will run from April 20-24, 2020, in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. The TED Translators Pass covers the conference fee, and travel and accommodation expenses. Please note that in order to be eligible for a pass, you must be a TED Translator with at least one set of published subtitles. The application deadline is Dec. 9, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. EST, and you can apply here.
The theme of TED2020 is “Uncharted”. Under this banner, we’ll journey into unmapped territory as we explore our uncertain future: We’ll survey the potential windfalls and dangers of cutting-edge technologies; recent significant scientific developments; our perpetually in-flux political dynamics and contingencies; and the oceanic possibilities that arise when we individually and collectively ask ourselves which ideas are truly worth fighting and living for. We look forward to you joining us!
