ANNOUNCE: CALL FOR PAPERS: ACM SIGDOC 2001

Communicating in the New Millennium

October 21 - 24, 2001
Santa Fe, NM


As we enter the new millennium, communication is becoming increasingly
global. English-only Web sites are fast becoming a limiting factor in the
intellectual exchange of ideas and information. Indeed, the printed
document
is giving way to electronic formats, including non-textual and multimedia
representations of critical information. The host city for SIGDOC 2001 is
Sante Fe, New Mexico's state capital and the oldest capital city in the
United States. With its rich cultural heritage, Sante Fe provides a
fitting
setting to reflect on current issues and consider new challenges facing us
in 2001 and beyond.

SIGDOC is the Association for Computing Machinery's (ACM) Special Interest
Group for Documentation, a professional organization dedicated to advanced
topics in documentation for and with computers. In addition to recognizing
this year's Rigo and Diana award recipients, the SIGDOC 2001 program will
include invited talks, panel discussions, paper presentations, posters and
demonstrations, and exciting tutorials. New this year are working
sessions,
which are extended discussions on a focused topic of interest to
conference
attendees. SIGDOC 2001 will provide an opportunity for the exchange of
information related to exciting new research and experience reports in
areas including (but not limited to):

* National language support in all forms of documentation
* Migrating to multilingual Web sites
* Cultural issues for international audiences
* Making documentation available in multiple formats
* Fundamental design principles that transcend the medium

Please submit a 500-word proposal describing your topic, objective, and
presentation format (paper, panel, poster or demonstration, tutorial, or
working session). Include a short biography with your proposal.
Submissions
may be in Adobe Acrobat PDF, HTML, Microsoft Word, Postscript
(interpretable by Ghostscript), or plain text format. Proposals must be
sent as an email attachment to stilley -at- cs -dot- ucr -dot- edu by 5pm Pacific time on
Friday, April 6, 2001. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by
May 22, 2001. Final versions of accepted papers are due July 13, 2001.
Proceedings will be published by the ACM. Selected papers will be
considered for publication in a special issue of the ACM Journal of
Computer Documentation.
