Subject: Small Conference for Senior Communication Professionals

o Do you work in an engineering or technical organization?

o Would you like to share ideas and experiences with other senior

o Have you wondered about alternatives to large, crowded conferences?

You might enjoy participating in a small, highly regarded conference that
offers lots of time to talk with colleagues. The IEEE Professional
Communication Society conferences normally draw about 200 senior
professionals in documentation and usability. Conference papers are
published in an archival, refereed Conference Record.

Lori Anschuetz and I are program co-chairs of the 1996 conference,
described in the following Call for Papers. In order to obtain a richer, more
interesting program, we'd like to encourage submissions from the entire
technical communication community (not just IEEE members). The
deadline for abstract submissions has been extended to January 31st; please
don't hesitate to e-mail or call me if you have specific questions. (P.S. to
East Coasters: If your travel budget doesn't reach to Seattle for the ITCC
this year, here's an alternative in New York State.)

IPCC '96: Communication on the Fast Track

Sheraton Saratoga Springs Hotel and Conference Center
Saratoga Springs, New York
September 18-20, 1996

Call for Papers

Join the stable of specialists presenting papers, workshops, and panels at the
1996 International Professional Communication Conference in Saratoga
Springs, renowned for its cultural, historical, and equine traditions. IPCC
'96 will draw experienced practitioners, researchers, and teachers to
consider the course ahead for technical communicators. You can contribute
to the excitement by preparing a presentation on one of the following topics,
or another that interests you.

Reengineering and You: Jockeying for Position in the Organization

o Coping with downsizing: Strategies for doing more with less
o Outsourcing communication: What, when, why, and to whom
o Building work relationships between information designers/developers
and product designers/developers
o The changing role of the technical communicator in the product
development process

Techniques and Tools for Sure-Footed Communication

o Processes for developing documentation in the '90s and beyond
o Structuring documentation libraries for print and electronic media
o Tools for coordinating centralized and distributed workgroups
o SGML/HTML tips and tricks
o Publishing on the Internet/World Wide Web

Communication Quality: Raising the Stakes

o Minimizing documentation: How much is enough?
o Effective uses of multimedia
o Usability testing of processes, products, and documentation
o Transforming research results into actual practice
o Staying abreast, pulling ahead: Developing technical communicators for
large enterprises and small firms

All you need to do now is submit a 300- to 500-word abstract describing
your topic, objective, and presentation format:

o Paper--A report of research results or pertinent experience by one or more
authors; published in the Conference Record.
o Workshop--A tutorial including hands-on participation by attendees.
o Panel--A series of complementary presentations by three or four speakers,
followed by an extensive question-and-answer session.

Include with the abstract a short biography of each author, workshop
instructor, or panelist (up to 100 words each). You'll learn by March 1996
whether your presentation has been accepted, and what your next steps will

Abstracts for IPCC '96 are due in the starting gate by January 15, 1996.
