Communication in the technical and professional realm involves giving shape to knowledge. As communicators and engineers, we synthesize information from many sources to create new practical knowledge. Engineers and subject matter experts give shape to knowledge, while professional communicators give new form to knowledge gained from such experts. We also creatively mine databases for inapparent knowledge. We respond to feedback from users, too, by reshaping existing knowledge. In these ways and more, we play a crucial role by transforming shapeless data into useful knowledge.
We invite you to explore how professional and technical communicators and engineers give shape to knowledge in a wide range of technical fields. Share your knowledge, experience, and interests. Please join us at IPCC 2003 in Orlando, Florida, September 21-24, 2003 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.
Headlining the plenary speakers at this year's conference is our keynote, Peter Kincaid of UCF's Institute for Simulation and Training. We also look forward to hearing from Dan Jones, the Ronald S. Blicq Award winner for Distinction in Technical Communication Education.
The preliminary program is now available for online viewing here.
