Conference theme

Colour & Human Comfort

This theme aims to relate the human being with comfort through the transdisciplinar knowledge of Colour.

Wellbeing is the fundamental condition to be achieved in everyone's life, and colour could play a tremendous role towards that fulfillment, from the clothes we choose every morning to the house we live in, our workspace, the environment that surrounds us, the objects we love, and so on.

But we know that there are many places, objects and environments that are not comfortable. In some cases, the reason is simple — lack of knowledge — in others, it cloud be the desire to impose certain aesthetic tendencies.
