This past weekend, however, I have managed to go to Maribor for a couple of hours and participate at the international conference Interpreting Studies at the Crossroads of Disciplines. The conference was organized by the Department of Translation Studies at the Faculty of Arts in Maribor and I did not want to miss this opportunity to learn about new advances and other researchers' work in the field, and also network with fellow researchers from Slovenia and abroad. Hopefully, the event and the contacts we have established, especially with the Maribor colleagues will help reinforce the position our discipline has in our country and maybe even lay grounds for more cooperation between our two departments and enable possible common projects.

All in all, I believe that the conference was a success and hopefully, there will be other editions in the future, showing that Slovenia, too, deserves a place on the interpreting research map.
