IPCC 2001, Communication Dimensions What's at the end of the Santa Fe Trail?

...one of the most beautiful and culturally rich cities in America...

...a landmark hotel called La Fonda...

...and, this October, exciting ideas in technical and professional communication.

We’re Still On—IPCC 01 will be held as scheduled, though the postconference workshops have been cancelled.

The 2001 International Professional Communication Conference will explore the many dimensions of a profession vital to our technological society. The conference is held each year under the auspices of the IEEE Professional Communication Society (one of the many societies within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) to help advance written, graphical, and spoken communication in the context of engineering, science, and technology.

The 2001 conference will be held at La Fonda on the historic Plaza of Santa Fe, New Mexico. IPCC 01 begins Wednesday, October 24 at a keynote luncheon (which also serves to wrap up the ACM SIGDOC conference) and runs through the entire day Friday, October 26.

Things To Do Now...

Preview the Program

Facts and ideas you can use will be everywhere.
As this Preliminary Program shows, an exciting selection of topics awaits you, with three and sometimes four technical sessions in parallel.

Attend the whole conference or select a single day.
We hope you can come for the entire conference. But in case one day's sessions match your interests especially well, or you’re on deadline and can’t get away for the whole three days, we recently added single-day rates. Speaking of savings, check out the deal on PCS and IEEE membership...
Arrange Your Travel and Lodging

You can get here from there... easily and inexpensively.
Transportation options, weather (we can’t promise fall color in the mountains, clear skies, and the scent of roasting chile in the air, but we’re certainly hoping for all that and more ourselves...), and how to get the IPCC 01 rate at a very special hotel...

Exploring Further...

Meet Our Keynote Speaker

See your work in a new light.
Amid the deadlines and details, sometimes we forget that we’re helping make a technological revolution happen. Our opening keynote speaker has played a role in some of this—and has talked with key figures in the rest of it. We could hardly wish for a better way to begin exploring the many dimensions of our profession than with Dr. Moira Gunn...

Sit in on SIGDOC and save.
IPCC 01 attendees who are interested in computer documentation should consider spending the entire week in Santa Fe and attending SIGDOC; the two conferences are joining forces to offer crossover registration at a noteworthy discount. Crossover registration means that when you register for one conference at its regular fee, you can attend the other conference for a modest additional fee. It’s a great way to parlay your trip into a weeklong immersion in the state of the art.
Explore New Mexico

Art, culture, science, history, scenery... it’s all here.
Can a photo evoke the way the sky can change from sapphire to Cerrillos turquoise... how a dark and secret place in a busy public square can be bisected into shadow and brilliant light with the passage of a cloud... what it feels like to walk around a corner and find yourself at the gallery of an artist whose work you’ve long admired?

You’ll just have to come and see for yourself. Whatever your interests, and whether your free time and ambition lend themselves to a stroll around the Plaza, a day trip, or the vacation of a lifetime, New Mexico has something for you.

Plan Now for 2002

Hope to see you again next year—Sept. 17-21 in Portland.
If IPCC 01 is a rewarding experience (or if you hoped to attend but couldn’t make it this year), please consider coming to Portland, Oregon for IPCC 2002, “Reflections on Communication.” Their Call for Papers is now in play (deadline March 8, 2002), so take a look... and tell a colleague or two about it as well.
