NEW [ 26.05.2021 ] :( 2CO 3rd conference postponed
COmmunicating COmplexity is the international network aimed at exploring languages, approaches and technologies to respond to the emerging need for making complex information accessible through design.
After hoping to be able to hold our conference in Alghero next September regularly, we have realized it may not happen to happen how we’d like it to be, on the track of our friendly and collaborative 2CO ‘Slow Complexity’ spirit.
Being realistic, we have then come to the conclusion that – after the too long stand-by and the somehow dramatic times we’ve been through – we all deserve to get back to opportunities to meet, exchange, and most off all, spend some time together.
A new initiative for the exploration of the educational issues of Communicating Complexity in the light of what we have recently learned with on-line teaching.
Generated by a consortium of European Universities that in 2011 started to collaborate in the InformAnimation project, and by fellow Universities active in visual design teaching and research, COmmunicating COmplexity aims at becoming an international reference point for research and education in communicating complexity through new media.
After the two first editions of the 2CO International Design Conference held in 2013 and 2017, the Communicating Complexity community is now aiming to find new opportunities to gather, discuss and exchange experiences and points of view on ways to ease the access to complex content through design.
Something we have been so far engaged with along various directions such as:
1. Actively involving students, which we like to think of as junior researchers, either with our Junior Track category, and with the 2CO workshops program we started in Tenerife.
2. And with increasingly shaping the 2CO platform as a bridge among the domains of research and profession practice, with the introduction of the 2CO everyday seminars.
In addition to this we have come up with this new project, the 2CO educational endeavor, which is intended at the same time as an approach march to the actual conference and an exploration to the educational issues of Communicating Complexity in the light of what we have recently learned with on-line teaching.
We are actively working to an on-line introductory course on info-design.
The first block took place from april to may 2021. We are almost redy to announce a second block from october to november 2021
