Attended by about 200 professionals from around the world, the IPCC offers an opportunity for colleagues and experts to meet and learn from one another. Sessions offer both fundamental and leading-edge developments in communication theory and technology. The IPCC Proceedings is the archive for the conference papers, provided for attendees and available as an IEEE publication.
The ongoing success of the IPCC also depends on its networking opportunities, where attendees can gather in small groups for in-depth discussions with featured speakers. Recent IPCC speakers include researcher Karen Schriver (author of Dynamics in Document Design), Edmond Weiss (author of several well-known books on writing, such as How to Write a Usable User Manual and The Writing System for Engineers and Scientists), and Walter Bender, Interim Director of the MIT Media Lab.
Also in development are Specialty Regional Conferences. Suggested topics have included content management and communicating in the engineering profession. If you are interested in hosting a regional conference, please contact PCS Vice President, Luke Maki.
As part of our ongoing effort to fulfill our mission, PCS from time to time presents Colloquia with other organizations. Our most recent effort was a 2-day event planned jointly with the Russian A.S. Popov Society.
