APCOMTEC 2021 in Porto

Greetings to all technical writers, and to everyone interested in technical communication!

It's time for face-to-face events again, or perhaps hybrid events. APCOMTEC, with the support of all the usual suspects, is organizing a half-day presential event on Saturday, November 6th.

Poster The event features two round-tables and a networking lunch:

How to create a department of Technical Communication
Cláudia Santos (Nokia at Aveiro), Rui Oliveira (Feedzai at Lisbon), Joaquim Baptista (Farfetch at Lisbon), João Ribeiro (Synopsis at Porto).
Technical Communication training: why and how?
Alexandra Albuquerque (APCOMTEC and ISCAP at Porto), Ana Costa (Synopsys at Porto).

Practical considerations:

  • The event starts at 10h30, meaning that you can take an early train in Linbon and arrive just in time.
  • The two round-tables will happen in a large auditorium, so you will only feel COVID-cramped if you want to.
  • Weather permitting, the networking lunch starting at 13h00 may happen outside.

You must register to participate, mostly for planning purposes, but also to decide whether the event is presential of hybrid.

You only pay for optional items such as the networking lunch.
