Short Description

The second "European Academic Colloquium on Technical Communication" was held in the Rhein-Main Hallen in Wiesbaden, Germany, on November 5, 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?" This volume will keep you up to date on the latest trends in the field.

About the book

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.

Research focusing on technical communication is crucial to advancing our understanding and knowledge and to proactively preparing future-oriented development. In response to this need, tekom ─ Europe’s largest professional association for technical communication ─ has organized the European Academic Colloquium on Technical Communication since 2012 to encourage the exchange of knowledge and ideas among members of the European scientific community who are teaching and doing research that is focused on technical communication or related fields, such as translation, multilingual communication, localization, terminology, and information management.
