SCCI Progam

2019 Program

Keynote address: Tom Johnson, Amazon

Full CFP

SCCI explores how the design and presentation of complex information affects how humans use it. Information complexity arises from the inherent relationships between context, content, and people using the information. SCCI seeks to examine these relationships by exploring how design and content choices influence people’s behavior when they interact with complex information in different contexts. As such, SCCI is of interest to fields as diverse as computer science, visual design, technical communication, mass communication, communication studies, and library sciences.

SCCI includes a half-day program track focusing on sharing research results, theoretical models, and best practices for conveying complex information associated with health and medical contexts. This track is sponsored by the Eunice C. Williamson Endowment fund at Louisiana Tech University.
