On the track of the very successful path initiated in 2013 in Alghero, 2CO aims at gathering scholars, professionals and students from the international design community, engaged in the exploration of new ways to inform, communicate and disseminate technical, scientific, social and environmental content.
We invite international professionals, scholars, students, educators and young designers, to join us in Tenerife in November 2017 to share projects, experiences, points of views and methodologies to shape what has become a vast and challenging interdisciplinary field on professional and research activity.
Along with the original three main area of interest: informative-animation; interactive data visualization; info-graphics, the 2017 Conference will host a new ‘informative environments’ topic, aimed at encompassing projects that explore the potential of the dimension of space and of interactivity to convey information.
In order to start exploring the didactic issues associated with this new field of study we are working on a series of short intensive design workshops, to be held in the conference’s week, aimed to professionals and to junior researchers and students, to start tackling the many educational issues connected with communicating complexity.
The call for abstract closed on June the 5th.
After being reviewed by the scientific committee through a double blind process, the submitted abstracts will be notified acceptance for presentation.
The selected authors will be asked to come to the conference next november to present their papers and posters.
Following the contribution’s presentations the scientific committee will select the papers that will be included in the Conference’s proceedings (despite not ensuring the automatic admission, a contribution selected for presentation at the Conference is likely to be included in the proceedings).
As for the first edition the proceedings book will be an ISBN publication (in English).
