Connecting across disciplines to share knowledge and experience regarding the SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY and AESTHETICS of color. 

Rochester Institute of Technology | June 11-15, 2023

Gather with your color colleagues for five days of fascinating keynotes, thought-provoking presentations, hands-on workshops, short courses, field trips, an art exhibit and more. We expect attendees from around the world and from across the spectrum of color professions including Science, Industry, Education, Art & Design. 

The image[1] of a 66,000 handprint from a cave in Maltravieso, Spain echoes our theme “Color and Human Experience” which spans time and crosses disciplines. Although the print was made by blowing pigment over hand to create a stencil, we are only able to see it because of the technology that allows researchers to see through the layers of calcification that obscure it. 

The ability to truly “see” color depends on the collaboration among various disciplines, so we invite you to share what you know and learn from others as we also celebrate RIT's Munsell Color Lab’s 40th anniversary!  READ MORE

Colour Literacy Forum

June 15, 2023

1:15-2:45 EDT

Held online and in person in conjunction with Color Impact 2023

Visual Literacy: Color & the Perceiver:

Join us for Colour Literacy Forum #5, Visual Literacy –– Color & the Perceiver, which will take place at Color Impact 2023. This forum is the third in a 4-part series about color perception. (The first focused on color and light, the second on color and materials).

Color is a perceptual experience, and each perceiver has a unique point of view. In this forum, our speakers will investigate the relationship between color vision and visual literacy, which can be described as our ability to navigate through the world using information provided by our visual system, our memories, and other sensory input.

Danny Rich 1951-2022

With great sadness, the ISCC mourns the loss of our colleague Danny Rich. Danny was a friend and mentor to many in the world of color and the recipient of both the Nickerson and Godlove awards. We are a better organization due to his many contributions and he will be sorely missed.

Upcoming events

The Inter-Society Color Council advances the knowledge of color as it relates to art, science, industry and design.
Each of these fields enriches the others, furthering the general objective of color education.
