In June of next year, the ISCC and AIC are hosting a special, one-time only event to honour the legacy of Albert H. Munsell.

The Munsell Centennial Symposium

The year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the Munsell Color Company as well as 100 years since the passing of Munsell. 2018 is also the 75th anniversary of the Munsell Renotations. In June of 2018, ISCC and AIC are hosting a special event in Boston to celebrate these milestones in the world of colour.

The Munsell Centennial Symposium will take place from June 11-15, 2018 at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. MassArt was known as the Massachusetts Normal Art School when Munsell graduated and taught there for over 30 years.

The Munsell 2018 Organizing Committee invites submissions of poster papers that feature the history, evolution, state-of-the-art, and future directions for Munsell’s system and systems inspired by Munsell as well as other approaches to solving similar problems in science, art, industry and education.

Poster submissions on topics that will enhance the themes of the invited presentations are especially encouraged. See the attached Program at a Glance.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is December 15, 2017. 
Notification will be February 9. 2018.
