Information+ Contributions About

Information+ is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together researchers, educators, and practitioners in information design and data visualization to discuss common questions and challenges in these rapidly changing fields. Information+ seeks to foster productive exchanges amongst the variety of people involved in the theories, practices and pedagogies of analyzing and communicating information.

Information+ will be held in-person between November 22nd – 24th, 2023 at minimal cost to attendees. Building on the experiences from the previous installments of Information+ 2016 at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, Information+ 2018 at University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, and a virtual Information+ 2021, we seek to significantly broaden the base of our interdisciplinary community. Again an in-person event, we want to emphasize community building.

Information+, an interdisciplinary conference for information design and data visualization. The conference invites for three types of contributions: presentations and conversations, workshops, and exhibitions. We invite proposals from all relevant fields and areas of professional practice, research, and pedagogy.

Detailed calls for submissions will follow shortly. We welcome submissions of critical thoughts, theories, practices, and experiences around information design and data visualization and relevant application areas from both academic and non-academic perspectives including the humanities and science, art and design, and all related (interdisciplinary) fields.

Information+ is committed to enabling a diverse, inclusive and respectful environment where all participants can learn, network, and enjoy planned activities. We are dedicated to a harassment-free experience for everyone.


Registration will open in July 2023


Information+ 2023 is made possible through the help and support of many people and partnering organizations.
