I just learned of another opportunity for professionals to share their knowledge in 2009 from Brenda Heuttner, my colleague in the Society for Technical Communication and IEEE Professional Communication Society. Brenda shared the following information on her blog.
“Po’okela” – that’s Hawaiian for “Commitment to Excellence”, and the theme of the IEEE Professional Communication Society annual conference, to be held in Honolulu, HI in July 2009. Here’s a note from the program chairs describing the call for proposals:
Please consider submitting a proposal for the 2009 IEEE Professional Communication Society Conference (IPCC), to be held July 19-22, 2009 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Proposals for individual papers, panel presentations, workshops, and posters are invited. Please review the Call for Proposals for the suggested topic areas. Non-members of the PCS may either join the society, or submit as a non-member and pay a higher conference registration fee. Proposals must be limited to less than 350 words.
Deadline for 1-2 page proposals: January 30, 2009
Early Proposal Review Opportunity ends October 30, 2008.
As an incentive to meet the early deadline, proposals received by October 30 will either be accepted as submitted, or returned with suggestions for revision. An early acceptance may also be helpful to you in cementing your travel plans for Hawaii!
To submit your proposal for review, complete the following steps:
