ICTVC2010: 4th Intl Conf on Typography and Visual Communication (June, Cyprus)

On 17, 18 & 19 June 2010 the Department of Design & Multimedia of the University of Nicosia will be hosting the 4th International Conference on Typography and Visual Communication (ICTVC) with the general theme “Lending Grace to Language”.

After three important and successful international meetings (2002, 2004, 2007 / http://www.ictvc.org/) ICTVC moves to Cyprus.  Our new home sits at the crossroads of three continents, a location of historical significance that far outweighs its small size.  The multicultural character of the island makes Cyprus a perfect location for a conference that explores the world of typographic design and visual language.The Organizing Committee members invite you to contribute your proposals for a presentation or panel discussion for inclusion in the programme of the 4th ICTVC.  Abstracts of no more than 200 words and a short bio of 70-100 words, either in Greek or English, should be submitted by 10 January 2010.  Conference presentations should be up to 30 minutes.

This time ICTVC is organized in collaboration with the Mass Media and Communication Institute (IMME), Cyprus, and AlterVision, Greece, and is supported by the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication at the University of Reading (UK), the Association Typographique Internationale (ATypI), the Institute of Paper, Printing & Publishing (IP3, UK), the Greek Graphic Designers Association (EGE) and the Thessaloniki Design Museum.  ICTVC is endorsed by the International Council of Graphic Design Associations (ICOGRADA).
