Call for Proposals Now Open for Spectrum 2018!


Submit your proposal by Dec. 8 to be considered as a presenter for STC Rochester’s regional conference, Spectrum 2018: Hack Into Your Flow, at the Rochester Institute of Technology March 25-27.

Author and technical communication consultant, Judith L. Glick-Smith, Ph.D., will deliver this year’s keynote speech and share her insights on flow-based decision making and leadership. When you get in the flow (or “the zone”), you lose your sense of time, increase productivity, and achieve better outcomes. Work even becomes fun!

In Technical Communication, hacking into a flow state can be essential as individuals and teams work to generate innovative, emergent, and complex communication on tight deadlines. What gets you and your team in the zone? Presenters are invited to answer this question and others:

  • What techniques can help us generate innovative and complex communication more efficiently?
  • What applications best manage our content and keep us focused?
  • What emerging tools or methods can help tech comm pros be more effective?
  • How can we improve our soft skills?
  • What do we need to know now that will help us advance our careers?
  • What’s the secret to leading fulfilling professional lives?

Please submit proposals using the 2018 Spectrum proposal submission form to
