Announcing the 2014 Pre-Conference

The STC Academic SIG Pre-Conference at CPTSC is being held 25 September 2014. The pre-conference is free of charge and is followed immediately by the annual CPTSC and ACM SIGDOC conferences. All three conferences are being held from September 25 to 29 at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. The Pre-Conference format has changed this year: it is shorter (Noon - 5pm) and features concurrent sessions. Watch this space for more Pre-Conference information and registration coming soon!
