All, (from your former Co-Chair)

I wanted to alert you to an opportunity to submit abstracts for the upcoming IEEE Professional Communications Society Conference later this year. I have recently been elected to serve on the PCS Board and will be part of the program committee reviewing the submissions.

I have provided contextual text below. Note the focus on data, data visualization and the like. All very much in line with the expertise across this group.

Please consider!!
IPCC 2012: Communicating Vision
For IPCC 2012, the IEEE Professional Communication Society invites proposals for papers, panels, and workshops by technical communicators, including engineers and engineering educators, on any topic in professional communication.

The theme of this year’s conference is Communicating Vision. Vision is, of course, one of the most important channels for communicating information, and we welcome submissions relating to all aspects of data visualization, information design, and best graphical practices, in all forms of print and electronic media.

Of course, we just as often refer to vision in a metaphorical sense, to denote ideas, goals, or breakthroughs that one “sees” with unusual acuity, understanding, or imagination. Vision of this type may make some professional communication particularly powerful, enabling it to bring together audiences and stakeholders, and to motivate them to action.

The conference organizers welcome submissions in all areas of professional communication. Authors interested in contributing to threads relating to the conference theme may want to consider areas such as the following:


 *   Communicating concepts with visuals
 *   Principles of visual rhetoric
 *   Design of data graphics
 *   Usability studies of visually oriented documents and displays
 *   Elements of page design and layout
 *   Use of visuals in social media
 *   Icon and logo design
 *   Techniques for presentations and data displays using slideware (PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi)
 *   The visual elements of human‐computer interaction and interface design
 *   Typography and font design
 *   Mission and vision statements, and other expressions of organizational identity and intent
 *   Business plans and other proposals laying out ideas for new enterprises

Student Poster Competition: In addition, IPCC 2012 invites students from all disciplines, at either the bachelor’s or master’s level, to submit posters representing projects in any area of technical communication. Prizes will be awarded at both undergraduate and master’s levels.
Submission Guidelines:  Please submit abstracts of up to 300 words for individual papers or workshops, or 500 words for panels.  Questions about the submission process should be directed to Richard House, Program Chair: house@rose-hulman.edu<mailto:house@rose-hulman.edu>.
Abstracts are due Friday, January 6, 2012. Visit www.ieeepcs.org<http://www.ieeepcs.org> to submit.
