IPCC 97 Crossroads in Communication
Advance Program and Registration Information
October 22-25, 1997
in Salt Lake City, Utah

A Personal Invitation
IPCC 97 will be a linked conference with SIGDOC 97; we will have a day of
joint sessions where attendees can participate in sessions from either
conference. Additionally, we're providing a substantial discount if you

Both conferences feature a full program of papers, panel discussions,
demonstrations, case studies, and tutorials on these and other topics. In
addition, the conferences provide you an opportunity to network with other
professionals and to develop skills and share ideas relevant to your job.

A Quick Overview of SIGDOC
SIGDOC is a Special Interest Group for DOCumentation - a society of senior
communication professionals. Members are from all technical and scientific
disciplines, those who create documentation in the computing community and
those who use of computers to create documentation in many styles and

A Quick Overview of IEEE PCS
IEEE stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers;
however, IEEE has grown to include multiple interests concerning the field
of engineering including computer programming as well as technical
communication. The Professional Communication Society (PCS) is one of the
special interest groups within the umbrella organization called IEEE.

IPCC (International Professional Communication Conference) is an exciting
forum where communicators and engineers talk to each other about technical
