May 8-9, 2017. tcworld China

From May 8-9, 2017, decision-makers and specialists in the field of technical communication meet at the tcworld conference in China.

Ulrike Parson, CEO of parson, gives the keynote speech on "Dynamic Publication of Intelligent Information". The main conference theme is "Let’s implement the future now!"

The keynote gives an overview of the requirements and characteristics of intelligent information, methods for content classification with metadata, and technical solutions for dynamic publication.
