You have 10 days, until Friday 5 April, to submit a proposal (or two) to speak at Technical Communication UK (TCUK) . TCUK 13 takes place in Bristol from 24th to 26th September 2013. It is the UK’s leading technical communication event, and without a doubt the friendliest professional conference you can find.
As well as three days of workshops and presentations, TCUK is your opportunity to meet and network with other technical communicators from across the UK and many other countries. We have planned social activities including receptions and a Gala Dinner (where we present the ISTC’s annual technical communication awards). In previous years delegates have organised a number of popular conference fringe events, from quiz events and late-night salsa dancing to early morning runs, and there are sure to be similar activities this year.
The call for proposals is open but closes on 5th April, so if you want to have a chance to speak at TCUK make sure you submit your ideas on time. Regardless of whether you want to present for the first time or you are a seasoned conference speaker, we want to hear from you. We don’t mind if you are new to technical communication or if you have worked in this field for ever, if you have something to say to other technical communicators then TCUK 2013 is your chance to say it.
As well as topics relating to our specialist stream The Management of Technical Communication, you may submit proposals on any topic that you feel will be of interest to technical communication professionals. Have a look at the list of suggested topics and use that as a jumping off point for your imagination. What do you think would be of interest to other technical communicators? We’re waiting to hear from you.
