The IEEE Professional Communication Society (PCS) is hosting its annual conference at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, October 13-15, 2014. This will be an ideal venue to deliver information about your products or services to the technical and professional communication community.

Attendee Profile

PCS has about 40% non-North American membership, and our conference attendance reflects the international nature of our membership. Many IPCC attendees have strong ties to academic institutions around the world. This conference has a higher percentage of technical communication professors and researchers than any other related events. Finally, due to the underlying support of the larger IEEE organization, we also have a high percentage of engineers who attend to learn more about communication skills and tools.

Sponsorship Opportunities

For Academic Programs in Technical Communication: $500 and $300

Two levels of support: an advertisement for your academic program in the conference program and on the PCS website, and your materials in the registration area ($500), or just the advertisement ($300).

  • All sponsors are entitled to mention their sponsorship and to use the IPCC 2014 logo on their websites or other promotional materials.
