The First International Conference on
Communication and the Future:
The Role of Communication and Translation in
Technology Transfer
May 15-17, 1995
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology
Haifa, Israel
Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite you to Haifa in May to take
part in the first International Conference on Communication
and the Future, organized by the Department of General
Studies at the Technion.

This conference is the first international meeting in
Israel on the subject of technological-scientific
communication and translation and their role in transferring
new technologies and scientific discoveries across national
boundaries and between markets. These fields have been
developing rapidly in the last decade all over the world, a
sign of an increasingly intimate global village and of a
growing awareness of the important role of communication in
technological progress. The recent political developments in
our region present special challenges and new opportunities
for disseminating discoveries, opening new avenues for
economic and scientific collaboration, and sharing Israeli
science with the world.

The goal of the conference is to raise public awareness of
the crucial role of technical writing, scientific
communication, and translation between Hebrew and other
languages in the economic development of Israel and the
Middle East generally. The conference will also address
specific ways of improving the efficiency of documentation,
translation, and other communications problems in
corporations, laboratories, and government agencies.
Technical writers, translators, scholars, and experts in
linguistics from industry and academia will share their
expertise in these areas. The conference will sponsor panel
talks, oral sessions, symposia and featured lectures as well
as banquet meals and receptions.

We hope to welcome you among the participants.
