ICON is calling for papers for its 10th Education Symposium. The open call is for contributions that broaden the understanding of how illustration is changing in the classroom and in practice. Unusual avenues of practice and inquiry are welcome, including both theory and practice-based researchers, academics, illustrators, typographers, designers, painters and artists.
The Conference will be held in Detroit, Michigan, July 11-14, 2018. The first two days of the conference are devoted to the Education Symposium and workshops; the second two days of the conference consist of main stage events with speakers, panels and presentations representing a broad range of specialties from the fields of illustration and design.
The extended deadline for submissions is August 1, 2017.
