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.

ANNOUNCE: Supporting TECHWR-L with Annual Sponsorships

Do you or others in your company benefit from TECHWR-L
list discussions, and the articles, services, and original
content published on the TECHWR-L Web site? Do you
learn a bit, laugh a bit, or otherwise profit from the
many regular columns and feature articles published
on the TECHWR-L site at http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/

If you answered yes to these questions, or have otherwise
taken advantage of the resources that TECHWR-L provides to the
community, take a few minutes to contact your boss, marketing
director, or company owner and let them know that sponsoring
TECHWR-L can both provide good PR and help ensure the continued
development of this resource.

In developing TECHWR-L, we chose not to use paid
subscription or fee-based funding models but, instead, chose to
develop the TECHWR-L list, Web site, and variety of services as
free resources to the community as a whole. We would like to
continue making TECHWR-L and its variety of services available
at no cost to the technical writing community because we think
they meet a significant information need. In short, we think
providing these services for free is simply the right thing to do.

Your company's sponsorship will help us continue to maintain
and develop the TECHWR-L community, which includes acquiring new
original content and developing new features, services, and
materials that meet the changing needs of the technical writing
community.

Where to start? See
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/sponsorships.html
Also, tell your boss, supervisor, or company president just how
important TECHWR-L is to you, and suggest that their support would
be invaluable in helping further develop these resources.
