​The event offers a fantastic opportunity to present and review the latest research across the closely linked fields of usability, technical communication and localisation. It is also a chance for attendees to map trends, update old approaches or devise new ones to suit how people are accessing information in the digital age.

Individuals interested in presenting at the symposium are invited to submit a 250-300 word proposal to give a 15-20 minute talk. Proposals should be submitted as .doc files emailed to, with the subject line reading ‘Strasbourg Symposium’.
