Information+: interdisciplinary practices in information design and information visualization.

Information+ was an interdisciplinary conference, workshop, and exhibition aimed at bringing together researchers, educators and practitioners to discuss opportunities and challenges in information design and information visualization. The inaugural Information+ conference was held in June 16–17, 2016, at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC, Canada, with the workshop taking place on the 18th and the accompanying exhibition Information Everything, co-curated by Katherine Gillieson and Gillian Russell, running through the month of July in the Concourse Gallery at Emily Carr.

Co-organized by Katherine Gillieson, Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Isabel Meirelles, OCAD University, Information+ 2016 would not have been possible without financial support from our home institutions as well as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
