Proceedings of the European Academic Colloquium on Technical Communication, Volume 2

Jörg Michael

The “Proceedings of the European Academic Colloquium on Technical Communication” are a European scientific journal for technical communication. They are released annually and are published on the internet and as print on demand. They are comprised of project reports, educational articles, empirical results of research and scientific discussions on all the topics related to technical communication.

The second "European Academic Colloquium on Technical Communication” was held in the Rhein-Main Hallen in Wiesbaden, Germany, on 5 November 2013. The topic of the event was “Scientific Perspectives on Technical Communication—What is the Scientific Approach to Technical Communication of the Participating Scholars across Europe?” While the focus was mainly on sharing scientific knowledge and reporting on (ongoing) research projects, scholars were also invited to exchange ideas on the design of curricula and study programs, the mobility of scholars and students, and cooperation between universities.
