SEE #5

For five years now the “see conference” has been gathering the most creative people and exciting ideas on the topic of information visualization. The interdisciplinary platform brings together fields like design, art, architecture and new technologies. Our international speakers will show the latest ideas and approaches on how to deal with the current flood of information, on how to visualize it and turn it into something that can be experienced.

Lift10

Lift is a series of events built around a community of doers and thinkers who get together in Europe and Asia to explore the social consequences of new technologies. Each conference is a chance to turn changes into opportunities by anticipating the major shifts ahead, and meeting the people who drive them.

05. – 07.05.2010 Geneva, Switzerland

UPDATE: Humanities + Digital

HyperStudio’s Visual Interpretations conference will bring digital practitioners and humanities scholars together with experts in art and design to consider the past, present, and future of visual epistemology in digital humanities. The goal is to get beyond the notion that information exists independently of visual presentation, and to rethink visualization as an integrated analytical method in humanities scholarship.

20. – 22.05.2010 MIT, Massachusetts, USA

SND Denver

In developing the program, we are focusing on training, seminars and networking — for students coming into the profession, for their advisers and teachers, for managers and editors, and for visual journalists in and out of papers. More specifically, our tracks will include sessions on career development, page design for newspapers large and small, online design, photography, informational graphics, graphic arts and multimedia.

23. – 25.09.2010 Denver, USA

VisWeek 2010

IEEE VisWeek 2010 is the premier forum for visualization advances for academia, government, and industry. This event brings together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in tools, techniques, and technology. The conferences and symposium will include an exciting and informative collection of workshops, tutorials, papers, panels, demonstrations, posters, and exhibitions.

This list is far from complete, so please help us with a note in the comments about any other event that would fit this list.

    What a fantastic, aspirational list. A while ago, we spotlighted 10 “alternative conferences” – all cross-disciplinary yet design-minded – on Brain Pickings. I hadn’t heard of Lift and it sounds fascinating, so it’s definitely going in our sequel. Thanks Ben.

    I will be attending to both Seeconference and IC10! Me and my classmate are graduating this year from Communication & MultimediaDesign in Maastricht The Netherlands. We are still finding our way towards the subject but our initial direction is the communications between government and civilians and how infographics could be of help.
