ACM SIGDOC 2002: connect
October 20-23, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
In an increasingly connected world, documentation cannot be
produced in isolation. Our dependencies on other team members,
and on expertise from related disciplines, require both a broad
understanding and a deep appreciation of our industry and our
place in it. This year^Òs conference will focus on making
connections: with our peers in industry and academe, between
theory and practice, between writing and technology.
April 6th is the deadline for proposals for the conference.
Please send proposals directly to the program chair:
