Welcome to the website of the 3rd International Conference & Exhibition on Semiotics and Visual Communication. This event will take place from the 3rd to the 5th of November 2017 at the Cyprus University of Technology, and is being organized by the Cyprus Semiotics Association together with Cyprus University of Technology and the Semiotics and Visual Communication Research Lab at the Department of Multimedia and Graphic Arts. The conference will be accompanied by a Poster exhibition with the theme ‘explosion[s]: the global logo’. 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, design and visual communication. Papers will be accepted in Greek and English.
Previous information can be seen at the first conference on Semiotics and Visual Communication , second conference on Semiotics and Visual Communication as well as in respect of the first selective volume of proceedings at Semiotics and Visual Communication: Concepts and Practices.
