Short Description

The sixth European Academic Colloquium (EAC) took place on April 26-27, 2018 at the University of Limerick in Ireland. For the third time, the Colloquium was integrated into the Erasmus+ project TecCOMFrame. With this year’s focus topic, 21st Century Skills for Technical Communicators, the purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for an international audience to discuss the dynamic and fast-changing challenges and potentials of the technical communication discipline. This volume will keep you up to date on the latest trends in the field.

About the book

The European Academic Colloquium is an event that focuses on scientific content with respect to technical communication. It is targeted at members of the European scientific community who are teaching and doing research in the area of technical communication or related fields, such as translation, multilingual communication, localization, terminology, and information management. Since 2011, the EAC has served as a significant venue for the dissemination and sharing of technical communication research and practices in a European context.

The sixth EAC succeeded in bringing together 52 participants from 10 European countries and the USA who share a common interest in the interdisciplinary field of technical communication.
