AIC 14th Congress Milano 2021
August 30th– September 3rd 2021
The Congress of the International Color Association (AIC) is a unique multidisciplinary event that brings together scholars and professionals from a wide range of fields. It has been held every 4 years since its inception in 1969 and in 2021, it will be hosted in Italy, for the first time, organized by the Associazione Italiana Colore.
As it is well known, color has been studied in depth for centuries and its ever growing theoretical and scientific understanding has led to significant developments in the culture of color and its applications; these, in turn, have had a major impact on the wider socio-economic community. Hence, in this Congress, all the topics related to color are welcome and will be addressed together with special session topics and the workshops of the AIC Study Groups. There will also be a special session for the awards: the AIC “Judd” award founded in 1973, the AIC “Color in Art and Design” (CADE) award and the Gruppo del Colore – Associazione Italiana Colore “Premio Colore GdC” award.
The Covid19 pandemic imposes multiple constraints all over the world. In Italy the laws of the state together with the safety rules of the previously chosen Venue (Ca’ Granda, Università degli Studi di Milano) prohibit any socializing, which is one of the fundamental reasons for the participation in presence. Moreover, due to travel-related risks and restrictions, the Gruppo del Colore – Associazione Italiana Colore in agreement with the AIC has decided to organize the AIC 14th Congress online in compliance with the program elements required by the AIC rules: Opening Ceremony, Awards, AIC General Assembly, AIC Working Groups Workshops and Closing Ceremony. In addition, all standards required for publications and the handover of the AIC banner to AIC2022 will be respected. The registration fee for the 5 days of the Congress has consequently been reduced.
However, if you decide to come to Milan we would like to remind you that the Congress will be exclusively online with no services provided in the previously selected Venue.
Online Milan, together with the Università degli Studi di Milano, Politecnico di Milano and the Congress organizers (Gruppo del Colore – Associazione Italiana Colore), is ready to welcome the participants from all over the world to the 14th AIC Congress, both as presenters and auditors, to explore together the scientific and cultural themes of human activity in which color intervenes or assumes a prominent place.
