A call for participation is open for Information+, the interdisciplinary conference for information design and data visualization. Proposals from relevant areas of professional practice, research, and pedagogy on topics such as algorithmic accountability, critical visualization, cultural analytics, data journalism, data studies, digital civics, digital humanities, environmental awareness, health information, historical collections, science communication, and social advocacy are welcome.
Information+ was co-founded in 2016 by Professor Isabel Meirelles, with the aid of a SSHRC Connections Grant. Now in its third edition, the conference will take place virtually in the week of September 27 – October 1. The call for participation is open with a deadline on May 15.

Authors accepted for presentation at the conference will have an opportunity to submit articles for publication in a special issue of an open-access academic journal. Articles will be selected by a peer review process. Submission and selection for the journal will take place after the conference. Previous special issues that Meirelles co-edited have been published as open access with the international and well-known Information Design Journal: IDJ 23.1 (https://doi.org/10.1075/idj.23.1) has articles from the 2016 conference, and IDJ 25:1 (https://doi.org/10.1075/idj.25.1) from the 2018 event.
