The conference

Welcome to the website of the 2nd International Conference & Exhibition on Semiotics and Visual Communication. This event will take place from the 2nd to the 4th of October 2015 at the Cyprus University of Technology, and is being organized by the Cyprus Semiotics Association together with Cyprus University of Technology. The conference will be accompanied by an Art and Design exhibition with the theme ‘Culture of Seduction (the seduction of culture)’. This inclusive conference and exhibition aims to investigate the broad subject field of semiotics in its widest context, celebrating the exploration of connections, tensions, contradictions and complementarity between the diversity of outputs.


The event seeks to bring together researchers, scholars and practitioners who study, evaluate and reflect upon the means by which semiotic theories can be analysed, perceived and articulated within the context of the various forms of theoretical and practice based visual communication. The conference welcomes papers from a broad interdisciplinary and theoretical spectrum, such as different semiotic paradigms, post-structural and postmodern approaches, social semiotics, theories of culture and visual communication. Papers will be accepted in Greek and English.
