Technical Communication at a Crossroads: New tools, career paths and changes

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Joyce Karreman

 

Call for Papers

The Colloquium theme is Technical Communication at a Crossroads. In many ways, the technical communication
field is at a crossroads, facing new requirements and asking questions about reinventing and surviving. The issues range from career paths and competencies to user engagement and documentation technologies and
methodologies.
We are inviting presentations on topics such as:

  • Technical communication professionals today: work roles and profiles, challenges, competencies and career paths
  • Technologies and methodologies impacting technical communication
  • Designing for user experience: possibilities and opportunities
  • New delivery channels and information outputs

If you are interested in speaking at the Colloquium, please use this Google form to submit a proposal by no later than 31 December 2016. We will get back to you before 1 February 2017. Accepted proposals will be posted on the web prior to the Colloquium. Final presentations must be delivered to the Colloquium cloud storage by 31 March 2017 and they will be made available on the web after the Colloquium. We hope to record presentations.

We ask you to forward this Call for Papers to others who might be interested in presenting at the Colloquium.
Information on registration, accommodation and other practicalities will be posted on the web later.

Few Options for Accommodation:

IIRIS also provides accommodation. If you want to minimize your travel time, you can also overnight under the same roof. Unfortunately, IIRIS gives very little information in English. But here you can see the picture of a typical room there: http://www.nkl.fi/fi/etusivu/iiris/majoitus. 

For more information on IIRIS in English, click http://www.nkl.fi/fi/etusivu/iiris/english.

All rooms are provided with a bathroom, fridge, radio and wireless internet connection. Some rooms can be arranged as family rooms with an extra dividing wall. Extra beds and beds for babies available.

You can also find there a common lounge area, TV, and a small kitchen, and also a washing machine is available. 

Currect prices (= 6.11.2016, inc. VAT):

Single room 75€ /night       Double room: 94 €/night. 

Downstairs there is a restaurant, open mon-fri. Breakfast 4,88 € (actually 4,90 if you do not buy anything else. In Finland, we do not use 1 cent coins. In total prices, all cents end with 0 or 5.)
Note: the restaurant downstairs is closed on sat-sun.  
 
 
Besides that, Itäkeskus is a shopping center, and if you do not want to overnight at IIRIS, you need to book a hotel room in the city center. 
Perhaps you would want to check these options: 
Both of them are very close to a metro station in the city center. If you take a train from the airport to the Central Railway Station, Kaisaniemi is closer.

 Hotel Arthur  is also in the city center, close to Kaisaniemi metro station.

The Scandic Hotel at Simonkenttä is in the city center, right next to the shopping center and metro station.

 The Scandic Marski is also in the city center.
