Call: Fourth International Conference on the Image


Deadline (abstracts): December 6, 2012

On behalf of the International Advisory Board, I am pleased to announce the Call for Papers and Call for Work for the Fourth International Conference on the Image and the Call for Submissions to the peer-reviewed International Journal of the Image.

The Image Conference will be held 18-19 October 2013 in Chicago, USA.

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. Proposals are invited that contribute to the conference discourse from any of the following thematic areas:

  • The Form of the Image: examining the nature and form of the image as a medium of representation
  • Image Work: investigating image making processes and spaces of image representation
  • The Image in Society: exploring the social effects of the image

In addition to these community themes, we invite submissions to the Call for Papers that addresses our 2013 special theme:

“The Everyday Image: Reproduction and Participation”

We are also pleased to announce a ‘Call for Work’. In conversation with the International Conference on the Image we invite conference participants to submit artistic work for entry into the 2013 Image Conference Exhibition. More information available at:

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters/exhibits, or colloquia are invited for the conference. The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 6 December 2012. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, may be found at the conference website:
