I had a very long flight today and arrived in Taipei about 27 hours after I left my home in Leeds at 5am this morning. I am here for the AIC colour conference (sun-tues). Staying in the Grand hotel which certainly lives up to its name. Very impressive.
The date for abstract submissions to AIC2012 (the International Colour Association’s conference in 2012) has been extended to 14th February 2012. There is still time to apply to present at this very exciting event in Taiwan. For further information see http://www.aic2012.org/. Taiwan is going to be a great venue and late September will be a fantastic time of year to see Taipei.
You may also be interested in the AIC’s new colour journal. It’s online and free to publish in and read. For further information see http://aic-colour-journal.org/.
And whilst we are add it – please make a note in your diaries for the AIC 12th International Congress which will be held in Gateshead (UK) in 2013 (8-12th July.
I am one of the organisers of AIC2013 – a major international conference to be held about colour in Gateshead (UK). We’re holding the conference in the Sage which is an amazing venue. I recently went to the Sage to see Brit Floyd – a fantastic tribute act to Pink Floyd. As a drummer, I would love to play at the Sage but we have a long way to go before we could justify that sort of venue 🙂
2013 may seem a long way away but we have already been planning this conference for about two years. We’re expecting 500+ delegates and if you are interested in colour this is the place to come in 2013. Of course, there is a smaller (but still fantastic) AIC meeting in Taiwan in 2012 if you can’t wait until 2013. I am also going to be going to Taiwan for AIC2012 and will probably call in at Shanghai whilst I am over there.
