SpeedCon Unconference on Communication



Official conference website:
speedcon.wordpress.com/

The STC Carolina chapter and the NC State SIGDOC chapter are presenting an unconference on communication on Saturday, October 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Talley Center on the NC State campus.

There is no cost to attend, but you must register in advance. See http://speedcon.wordpress.com/(external link) for complete information


What's an unconference?

An unconference is a participant-driven conference. The content is generally diverse and tends to include some short presentations such as lightning talks (a series of 5-minute presentations, often unrelated to one another). Unconferences avoid aspects of conventional conferences such as high fees, sponsored presentations, and top-down organization. (And hey, you can't get lower-cost than free!)

Registration and breakfast will begin at 9:00 a.m., with the program beginning at 10 a.m. We're planning a total of 20 sessions, each 30 minutes long, with four sessions running concurrently. Some sessions may include two 15-minute presentations, and some may include five 5-minute presentations. We don't know for sure, because it's an unconference! But we do know that you'll have lots of opportunities to interact with and learn from fellow technical communication
professionals about topics of interest to you. Stay tuned for more information!

Note: If you enjoy the event, and you'd like to show your appreciation, please consider donating to the Diane Feldman Scholarship Fund at http://www.stc-carolina.org/tiki-index.php?page=Diane+Feldman+Scholarship+Fund.
