Default ATypI 2005: Helsinki

ATypI has issued a Call for Papers for this year’s annual meeting, to be held September 15 to 18 in Helsinki, Finland.
Conference theme: On the Edge

  • This is type on the northern edge of Europe and the edge of the Baltic Sea; type of the Nordic and Baltic cultures and languages.
  • This is type on the forward edge of technology: type on television screens; type embedded in telephones; type circling around the world.
  • This is type on the edge of a global culture: type as a medium of change and also of preservation; type as a carrier of cultures.
  • And this is type on the edge of design: type as form and content; type as an idea, and type as an activity.
The ATypI programme committee invites submissions of abstracts for presentations related to type and typography “on the edge” and says that “novel interpretations are welcome.” The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2005.

Topics may include type design, typographic media (new and old), font technology, printing history, use of type, multilingual typography, design education, or other topics.

Abstracts should include: Title, presenter’s name or names, short biographical note (50 words), short summary (100 words), all suitable for publication in the conference programme. It is expected that presenters will provide the text and images (if possible) for a publication after the conference.

Send proposals by e-mail to the ATypI programme planning committee. Or check out the ATypI web site for further information.
