The fifth European Academic Colloquium (EAC) on Technical Communication took place in Antwerp, Belgium on April 28, 2017. A specific topic of interest that year was Content Strategy, which “plans for the creation, delivery and governance of useful, usable content”, according to Kristina Halvorson, the author of “Content Strategy for the Web” (2012). This volume will keep you up to date on the latest trends in the field.
Continuing the fruitful mission of previous editions of EAC, the fifth EAC succeeded in bringing together almost 30 scholars from 9 European countries and the USA who share a common interest in the interdisciplinary field of technical communication.
