Welcome

TCUK is the ISTC’s annual conference for everyone involved in writing, editing, illustrating, delivering and publishing technical information.

With over 30 different presentations and workshops from both world renowned speakers and the ISTC’s own members, it offers three days of intensive learning, with social activities for networking and an impressive vendor exhibition.

Looking towards TCUK 2015

This year’s special focus is Breaking the Boundaries of Technical Communication.

One of the exciting aspects of technical communication is its changing nature. Assumptions are being challenged, boundaries are being broken, as technical communicators meet the needs of users. You’ll be hearing from others about their experience of, and thoughts on, moving beyond the technical communication that we know today.

This year’s venue

The Technical Communication UK (TCUK) conference for 2015 will be in Scotland for the very first time. TCUK 2015 takes place on 29th and 30th September and 1st October, and is at the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre, at Dalmuir in Clydebank, just outside Glasgow.

Looking back at TCUK 2014

Delegates could choose from a wide range of presentation topics, including content development and content delivery, the challenges of mobile documentation, and the opportunities that exist in structured authoring. The special focus was “Technical Content in the Age of Social Media”.
