3rd Annual Symposium on Communicating Complex Information (SCCI)

February 24-25, 2014
East Carolina University
Greenville NC

Registration is now open.

We invite everyone to join us on February 24-25 for the Symposium on Communicating Complex Information (SCCI).
Mendenhall Student Center--Room 15.

The future will see the design of information and communication technologies that serve ever more complex purposes and problems. For these technologies, creating user centered design is particularly challenging when users are engaged in sophisticated knowledge work and collaborations and do not want to become power users to conduct this work electronically. Goals of this workshop are to clarify what we already know about communicating complex information, how to apply that understanding in our work, and to clarify our understanding of what issues urgently need further research.

We hope to reach new insights about

  • The current major research issues that need to be addressed
  • Ways to transform research into practical applications

Keynote address will be given by Whitney Quesenbery.

The symposium offers a format designed to maximize the exchange of information and ideas among all the attendees. It features a highly interactive format with each presenter giving a 15-20 minute presentation followed by a 20-30 minute discussion. Our goal is to encourage high interactivity and in-depth discussion about each presentation.

Please, feel welcome to come join us.
