Call for papers

On December 17 and 18, 1998 Tilburg University will host the
First International Conference on Document Design.

The conference will address research on the design of informative,
instructive, and persuasive texts.


The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers who are
interested in document design and who are working in the field of
discourse studies, (cognitive) linguistics, cognitive psychology, social
psychology, educational psychology, speech communication, technical
communication, communication science, marketing communication, and so
on. The program will include three plenary lectures: on instructive texts
by Richard Mayer, on informative texts by Mark Sadoski, and on
persuasive texts by Joan Meyers-Levy. In addition, there will be
parallel sessions on these three topics and a poster session.


The organizers invite contributions on how document design decisions and
the choice of message variables affect the function and use of
informative,instructive, or persuasive documents.


Methodologies used may range from experimental and (corpus) analytical
to case studies. Message variables may concern content, structure,
style, lay-out, audience, and so on.
