Where is the journey heading?

Digitalization in Technical Communication.

The pandemic has led to significant changes in professionals’ work practices. They need to work from their home office, cooperating online with others. Many tasks are digitalized. These changes affect the field of technical communication in many ways, since communicating about digital and technical services is one of our core tasks.

Therefore, Digitalization in Technical Communication is a specific topic of interest of this year’s colloquium.

Learn more about Digitalization from the EACs presentations and get involved in interesting discussions -  not only for academics.
