About the conference theme
The theme Colour Connections acknowledges the importance of multidisciplinary approaches to colour in this era of ever-narrowing specialization. Participants are invited to consider how their own work involving colour may be of interest and of importance in other disciplines, or to critically contrast and perhaps reconcile different specialized approaches to colour within their own discipline. We encourage participation from designers, artists and other colour practitioners whose work references scientific or philosophical understanding of colour, from colour educators whose teaching programs span the art-science divide, and from scientific, historical and other researchers who believe that their insights about colour have relevance beyond their specialized areas of interest.
Submissions on any colour-related topic are welcome, including but not limited to:
Colour Vision I Neuroscience I Phenomenology of Colour I Colour Perception and Illusions I Colorimetry | Colour Appearance Models
Colour and Language | Psychology of Colour I Colour Aesthetics I Colour Symbolism I Philosophy of Colour
Colour in Graphic Design, Fashion Design, Communication Design, Product Design, Packaging Design and Marketing I Colour in Photography, Image Processing, Television and Cinema
