Visualization

Visualization is the main topic of this first three-country tekom event. The trend of interacting more and more using visual features during the last years, in technical communication as well, is obvious. This was also reflected at the international tekom Europe / tcworld conference 2015 at Stuttgart. There are many reasons for the lively interest in pictures, films and interactive use.
The rise of mobile devices, growing complexity of products, rising translation costs and demanding global markets are just some of the aspects that influence all areas of technical communication. Experts from both universities and industry will zoom in on a huge range of visualization issues: They will present, reflect on and discuss theoretical and practical aspects of human communication, human-machine interfaces, flashy and moving visual applications, visualized modular content and what icons mean in technical communication.

The seminar is free for tekom Europe members and interested persons. All you need to do is sign up for the event online. Upon request you can receive a "Certificate of Participation" after the event.
