The following announcement is from Jennifer O'Neill, Europe SIG Manager.
For the second year running, the International Technical Communication SIG and the Europe SIG are going to do a joint progression on international issues related to technical communication.
If you're interested in presenting a topic related to localisation, internationalisation, cross-cultural/cross-language communication, working abroad, legal issues related to international communication, or another topic related to international or specifically Europe (or indeed EMEA – Europe, Middle East and Africa) drop me a note and I'll start organising some ideas.
For the moment send your ideas to me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'll gather them together with Tracy Nathans-Kelly of the International SIG and we'll post a list so that everyone can see what they could contribute.
I've done a few progressions at the annual conferences and they are fun and stimulating. A very interactive way to discuss a topic.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 5 October 2009. So there's not too much time left.
Manager, Europe SIG
