Conference Proposal Deadline Extended to 19 September 2014

STC Annual Technical Summit logo

STC invites you to contribute your ideas, studies, experience, and expertise at the 2015 Technical Communication Summit, the 62nd Annual Conference of the Society for Technical Communication. The Summit is being held 21-24 June 2015 in Columbus, Ohio, USA.

The Summit fosters industry-leading technical communication by stimulating information exchange, cultivating research, and serving as the primary source of education for professional technical communicators. Program sessions should represent the latest business trends, communication techniques, technologies, approaches, and solutions. Please visit the Call for Proposals information pages to learn more.

Proposals are due

11:59 PM EDT (GMT-4) on Friday, 19 September 2014
All proposals must be submitted through the STC online submission system. The Call for Proposals information site provides the guidelines and process for submitting, and only those proposals that are submitted through this site will be accepted.

Types of Proposals

STC is looking for presentations, workshops, progressions, lightning talks, etc. Because sessions are 45 minutes long, each progression presenter will do two 20-minute presentations (10 minutes of presenting, 10 minutes of discussion). This format worked very well last year, and we are doing it again. We're aiming to group about six topics to a progression.

STC definitely encourages the submission of more advanced topics, whatever the session type. Our surveys show the majority of attendees want to be challenged and move past the “101” or “Intro to” topics, and this makes sense – most of our attendees have 10 or more years of experience in the profession. Make them think.

Questions

If you have any questions, please contact the Program Advisory Committee or Conference Committee at email hidden; JavaScript is required for more information.

Good luck and see you in Columbus!
