At this year’s tcworld conference, we celebrated tekom Europe’s 10th anniversary. The celebration began with the Honors Banquet on Tuesday evening. The founding members of tekom Europe, who signed the founding papers of tekom Europe at tcworld conference 2013 in Wiesbaden, were honored. It was a wonderful evening with good food and good company.
tekom Austria organised an event dedicated to the S1000D, a standard that originally comes from the aviation and military industries. The event was held at the FH Joanneum Graz. Several guest speakers shed light on the standard, its theoretical foundations and its practical implementation from different angles.
This year’s conference started on Tuesday, September 19 with a networking event in the afternoon. Attendees discussed tools and trends in technical communication, including content writing, systems, and challenges in translation. The most hotly discussed question was “Will AI help us get rid of PDF as a format?” The overall consensus was that, at some point, PDF formats will probably be replaced by AI – however, it will take a while. In the evening, there was a guided tour through the city center of Copenhagen, where we visited the most important sights and learned about the history of Copenhagen.
Since this networking format was well received by attendees, providing an excellent start for the next two conference days, we will probably host it again next year, maybe in a different setting.
