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.
A few years ago I set up a new journal – Colour: Design and Creativity. What I wanted to do was create a journal where people interested in colour could communicate and discuss their research whether their background be scientific, artistic, design, or anything else. For me colour is inherently multi-disciplinary – it’s a sort of meta-discipline, in fact. And the richest discussion is likely to be discussion that enables people from many different backgrounds to contribute.
I set the journal up with the Society of Dyers and Colourists who seemed to share my view. But I guess it didn’t really work out and we needed to find a new home for the journal. So I Was delighted when there was interest from AIC – the International Colour Association. We have now launched the Journal of the International Colour Association and published our first issue last month: see http://journal.aic-color.org/ and click on browse issues on the right-hand side. I am slowly uploading the previous issues that were published as Colour: Design and Creativity but that could take some time.
The journal is free to view and free to publish in. Please take a look.
