Progress in Colour Studies 2022 (PICS2022)
The aim of the PICS 2022 is to provide a forum for discussion of recent and ongoing research and bring scholars from different disciplines together. Authors are encouraged to consider their own specialist colour expertise in the broader context of colour at the intersection of many disciplines.
We therefore welcome proposals for papers on colour studies from any area of interest, including but not limited to the following topics:
- Linguistics, psycholinguistics, and colour in languages
- Colour in literature and poetry
- Translation of colour
- Vision, perception, cognition, memory
- Design, fashion
- Architecture, art, history, heritage, culture
- Imaging, computation, analysis, modelling
- Illumination, optics, photography, technology
- Conservation, chemistry, materials, surfaces
Authors are also encouraged to consider their own specialist colour expertise in the broader context of colour at the intersection of many disciplines.
Confirmed keynote speakers are:
Delwin T. Lindsey & Angela M. Brown (Ohio State University, USA)
Galina Paramei (Liverpool Hope University, UK)
Carsten Levisen (Roskilde University, Denmark)
Along with the keynote lectures, the conference will host oral and poster presentations.
Oral presentations will be allocated 25 minutes per speaker (20 minutes for the presentation plus 5 minutes for questions and discussion).
Proposals for group sessions (of 3-5 papers) are also welcome.
Abstract submission deadline is 20 March 2022.
Notification about acceptance of abstract is 5 May 2022.
