CONFERENCE: European Information Development Conference (EIDC)
9 to 10 November in Wiesbaden, Germany

European Information Development Conference (EIDC)
The European Information Development Conference is a high quality event
for professionals dealing with multilingual product information such as
technical writers, web designers, documentation and information managers,
translators, vendors etc. It provides an excellent platform for
information and knowledge exchange between experts from the industry,
researchers, education experts, service providers and free-lancers.

In six forums the attendees will have the opportunity to hear about and
discuss current TC topics, best-practice examples, new trends and
technologies:

* Online help forum
* Localisation forum
* XML forum
* Usability forum
* Content management forum
* Terminology in Advanced Management Applications (TAMA)

The forum presentations will be completed by workshops where topics are
approached in-depth and in a more interactive and practice-oriented way.

It will take place 9 to 10 November 2005 in Wiesbaden in the centre of
Germany, close to Frankfurt/Main Airport.

The EIDC conference will be linked to the tekom annual conference (9 to 11
November) which has become, in the past few years, the most important
event in the field of technical communication in Europe.
