SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE IMAGE
Kursaal Congress Palace, San Sebastian, Spain
26-27 September 2011
The Image Conference is a forum at which participants will interrogate the nature and functions of image-making and images. The conference has a cross-disciplinary focus, bringing together researchers, teachers and practitioners from areas of interest including: architecture, art, cognitive science, communications, computer science, cultural studies, design, education, film studies, history, linguistics, management, marketing, media studies, museum studies, philosophy, photography, psychology, religious studies, semiotics, and more.
We are pleased to hold the 2011 conference alongside the San Sebastian International Film Festival, founded in 1953 and acknowledged by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF) as an A Category Festival.
As well as a line-up of internationally-known plenary speakers, the conference will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. Participants are invited to submit a presentation proposal for a 30-minute paper, 60-minute workshop, or a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session.
Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the refereed International Journal of the Image. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication, as well as access to the journal. We also encourage you to present on the conference YouTube Playlist.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 10 March 2011. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, may be found on the conference website at http://ontheimage.com/conference/ .
We also invite you to subscribe to our free, monthly email newsletter, and to our Facebook, RSS or Twitter feeds at http://ontheimage.com/ .
We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in San Sebastian this September.
