The ISCC is the principal professional society on the
field of color in the United States, encompassing the arts, sciences and industry,
pursuant to the Aims and Purposes described here. Other national
organizations with an
interest in color are Member-Bodies of the Council and appoint delegations to participate
in the Council's work. Individual members are the largest single group.
The Annual Meeting, usually held in April, includes
- meetings of the Project Committees and
- sessions of three Interest Groups:
- Fundamental & Applied Color Research;
- Industrial Application of Color; and
- Art, Design & Psychology.
There is also a
- main program devoted to a specific aspect of color plus a
- Poster Paper session.
Joint programs with one of the Council's Member-Bodies are interesting and educational.
In most years there is a separate topical Williamsburg
Conference, often in February, where a single color subject is explored in depth with
participants from all over the world providing state-of-the-art information. Attendance at
these conferences is usually smaller than at Annual Meetings, reflecting their topical
nature and permitting interaction between speakers and participants.
The ISCC is the U.S. Member of the Association
Internationale de la Couleur (AIC), which holds general meetings quadrennially
and topical meetings annually.
