On 19 and 20 April 2018 EC SCIC hosted the annual conference which brought together around 180 participants from partner universities collaborating with EC SCIC on a regular basis. Since its inception in 1996 the conference has served as a forum to discuss the latest tendencies in interpreting and teaching interpretation. This year the conference was devoted to Interpretation: Sharing Knowledge and Fostering Communities. A. Antonova, SCIC Deputy Director, had several meetings on the margins of the forum: she participated in the work of EMCI General Assembly and had a meeting with Florika Fink-Hoojer, General Director of EC SCIC.
