colour conference in UK


In July of this year the UK is hosting the 12th International Congress of the International Colour Association. We have received over 600 submissions from people who would like to present their work and so it looks as though we can have a very successful conference. If you have an interest in colour then this is the place to be this year – for further details visit http://aic2013.org/

The 12th International Congress of the International Colour Association (AIC) is taking place in July next year in the UK. The deadline for submitting abstracts is 17th December 2012 so there is not much time. Please visit http://aic2013.org/ for further information about how to submit abstracts and about how to get involved generally. The Congress will be held in Gateshead which is on the opposite side of the river to Newcastle and will take place in the iconic Sage conference centre. Attending AIC is a great way to meet other people who share your interest in colour.

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.
