INFORMATION+ 2021 Conference | Call for Participation
Interdisciplinary practices in information design & visualization
ONLINE: 27 September - 1 October 2021

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 online between 27th September – 2nd October, 2021 at minimal cost to attendees. Building on the experiences from the previous installments of Information+ 2016 at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver and Information+ 2018 at University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, we seek to significantly broaden the base of our interdisciplinary community. We are working to design a new kind of online event for the Information+ community; it will not be a typical online conference. We will be posting regular updates about our plans for the format as they develop.

In 2020, Information+ was scheduled to be held in-person at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia (USA). Due to the risks posed by COVID-19, that event was cancelled. The 2021 online format is intended to enable the safest and most inclusive possible event, given continued uncertainties about the viability of large in-person gatherings.

Information+, an interdisciplinary conference for information design and data visualization, invites proposals from all relevant areas of professional practice, research, and pedagogy.

We welcome submissions on topics, such as but not limited to the following: algorithmic accountability, critical visualization, cultural analytics, data journalism, data studies, digital civics, digital humanities, environmental awareness, health information, historical collections, science communication, and social advocacy. All proposals must feature original work, which has not been presented previously.

Proposals should contain the following elements: a clear research question or design objective; a discussion of related work; an explanation of methods employed or design decisions undertaken; culminating findings, reflections, and contributions. There are two possible formats for proposals, both of which are appropriate for academic and practice-based work: 15-minute paper presentations and 5-minute lightning talks. Please, use EasyChair to submit your proposals by 15 May 2021 ( The paper presentations and lightning talks will be pre-recorded by the authors, with live discussions among presenters and participants during the event between 27th – October 2nd. More information about the live format will be shared after contributions have been accepted.
