The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (RMC

presentation proposals for the 1998 STC Region 7 Conference, to be held
October 15, 16, and 17 in Denver, Colorado.
Entitled "The Medium Formerly Known as Print: New Directions in Technical
Communication," the conference will explore new
media such as Web-based publishing and online documentation as well as
the importance of fundamental communication skills. The conference
features noted keynote speaker Richard Thieme, whose extensive writing
and speaking focuses primarily on the impact of computer technology on
individuals, organizations, and society. The closing speaker will be
William Boast, author of Masters of Change.
Presentations topics may include communicators'
expanded roles and opportunities; new tools and techniques that extend
traditional print and online media; and fundamental skills such as
writing, editing, and document design, audience analysis and usability
testing, and project management. Proposals for papers, panels, and
workshops in any of these topic areas are welcome.
