The 2015 representatives for Maastricht are Dr. Marcel Thelen and Drs. Dirk Verbeeck, and for Łódź Prof. Dr. Łukasz Bogucki. The International Maastricht-Łódź Duo Colloquiums are organised every 5 years and consist of two parts in one and the same year: one in Maastricht, the so-called Maastricht Session, and one in Łódź, the so-called Łódź Session. Both Sessions have their own organising committees. The chair of the Maastricht Organising Committee is Dr. Marcel Thelen and of the chair of the Łódź Organising Committee is Prof. Dr. Habil. Łukasz Bogucki.
Main theme for both Sessions
The overall aim of the International Maastricht-Łódź Duo Colloquiums is to provide an international forum for discussion between translation/interpreting theorists and practitioners on issues of meaning in translation and interpreting.  The central theme for both the Maastricht and the Łódź Sessions is "Translation and Meaning". In principle, the Maastricht Sessions will be geared towards practice, and will deal with practical aspects of the central theme and the various sub-themes, and the Łódź session will be geared towards theory, and will deal with theoretical aspects.
