The Bowling Green State University (BGSU) STC chapter is proud to host the
Region 4 Student Conference titled "Working on the Web." The conference is
an all-day event scheduled for April 4, 1998.

As you know, the Web is one of the hottest technical communication topics.
Web skills are becoming more and more in demand with employers, and an
excellent chance to increase your Web knowledge is to attend the BGSU STC
chapter's Region 4 Student Conference.

Topics covered in the presentations and workshops will be a range of issues
such as site design, Internet sites vs.intranets, online editing, and usability
testing. The presenters in these sessions will include professionals
representing companies such as Netscape and Rockwell Software and students
and faculty from BGSU.

The conference will be held primarily in Olscamp Hall located on the BGSU
campus. A networking lunch will be served in our Pheasant Room, and
a continental breakfast will be available in the morning. Unlike other
conferences that can easily exceed 100 dollars, this conference is only
$25.00, and you do not need to be an STC member to attend.
