Here's the theme of the conference:
Plain Language Advances: New skills, knowledge, research, and best practicesPlain language is an international language that everyone in your audience can easily understand. Clear writing in plain language saves time, money, and lives. Formed in 1993 as the Plain Language Network, the Plain Language Association InterNational (or PLAIN) is a growing volunteer nonprofit organization of plain-language advocates, professionals, and organizations committed to plain language.
The conference website says:
Plenary speakers, table topics and workshop hosts will share what is new in relevant research and which old guidelines are supported by recent research.
Experienced plain language professionals will share best practices and display their project successes and products. Table speakers (in round-table progressions) will offer business advice, while others will suggest better practices for self-management and development. Experts from related fields will share their knowledge and skills.

- Participate as a speaker or workshop facilitator.
- Lead a round robin conversation or share at a poster session.
