22nd-24th November, 2023
The Information+ conference calls for submissions of Presentations, Workshops & Activities, and Exhibitions.
Information+ is a biennial conference that brings together researchers and practitioners in information design and data visualization to discuss common questions and challenges in these rapidly changing fields. Unlike discipline-specific gatherings, Information+ seeks to foster productive exchanges amongst the variety of people involved in the theories, practices and pedagogies of analyzing and communicating information.
Following its previous editions in Vancouver and Potsdam, Information+ 2023 will be run as an in-person event in Edinburgh. The conference will be hosted by the University of Edinburgh, which is actively exploring interdisciplinary approaches to teaching and research around information design, visualization and related fields, visible in the Edinburgh Futures Institute, Design Informatics, the Bayes Centre, Data Lab, the Centre for Data, Culture, and Society.
In past years of Info+, presentations have covered a broad range of topics in information design and visualization, including:
social and political issues,
the environment and climate action
advocacy and law,
health and medical applications,
cultural analysis and collections,
Digital humanities, and
Advances and trends in information design
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Information+ calls for submissions for three types of contributions:
1/ Presentations call to engage the community in timely, thought-provoking, and interdisciplinary conversations from practitioners, artists, academics, and others that are not usually represented at visualization and data-oriented venues.
2/ Workshops & Activities aim to offer opportunities for discussion, hands-on experiences, and networking of different length and purpose. Activities offer opportunities for brief exercises that engage the conference attendees with data and visual representation
Submissions will follow a form and should be submitted by June 7th, also through EasyChair.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
