NEW [ 31.03.2021 ] 2CO 3rd conference announced
COmmunicating COmplexity is the international network aimed at exploring languages, approaches and technologies to respond to the emerging need for making complex information accessible through design.
We are happy to announce a new edition of 2CO COmmunicating COmplexity, the international design conference exploring ways to make information more accessible through design, to take place in Alghero from 9 to 11 of September 2021.
A new initiative for the exploration of the educational issues of Communicating Complexity in the light of what we have recently learned with on-line teaching.
Generated by a consortium of European Universities that in 2011 started to collaborate in the InformAnimation project, and by fellow Universities active in visual design teaching and research, COmmunicating COmplexity aims at becoming an international reference point for research and education in communicating complexity through new media.
After the two first editions of the 2CO International Design Conference held in 2013 and 2017, the Communicating Complexity community is now aiming to find new opportunities to gather, discuss and exchange experiences and points of view on ways to ease the access to complex content through design.
Something we have been so far engaged with along various directions such as:
1. Actively involving students, which we like to think of as junior researchers, either with our Junior Track category, and with the 2CO workshops program we started in Tenerife.
2. And with increasingly shaping the 2CO platform as a bridge among the domains of research and profession practice, with the introduction of the 2CO everyday seminars.
In addition to this we have come up with this new project, the 2CO educational endeavor, which is intended at the same time as an approach march to the actual conference and an exploration to the educational issues of Communicating Complexity in the light of what we have recently learned with on-line teaching.
We are currently working to an on-line introductory course on info-design to take place from here to the September main event.
