Documentation brings value - we can break this down into change management, reduced silos, increased communication, more positive customer relationships, and education. This miniconference demonstrates the ethical imperative to support and expand documentation services within a business. Without such a documentation service, change, silos, customer relationships, and education atrophy and attenuate within a business to the detriment of all.

This documentation miniconference is open to professionals working in Australia, with invitations extended to international professionals. Following the LCA2020 theme, we are interested in the ethical impact documentation incites. We want to spotlight the ethical impact Documentation experts provide when they manage change, information silos and knowledge bases, customer relationships, Design for Users, and education.

We want to hear your stories, information, research, and ideas on documentation and ethics.

Whether you are are a professional writer, a project contributor, or just interested in the art of communication, we invite you to come along and discover the absolute value of documentation.
