Information Design for Healthcare – call for papers open until 28 February.

Visionplus is back, even more importantly, it’s back in Vienna, Austria 🙂

The 19th Visionplus conference focuses on healthcare, prevention, and well-being:

Information Design for Healthcare

Finding a way through healthcare systems, healthcare buildings, and healthcare finances is often a challenge, even when we’re healthy and wealthy. Information is crucial to enable people to act appropriately.

The focus of the conference is on questions like:

  • How do information design principles relate to patients and their health?
  • Could information design be beneficial for the outcomes of treatments, care, and well-being?
  • Do patients really notice and appreciate information design?
  • What kinds of evidence and reasoning is required to show the relevance of information design in health contexts?
  • Can information design bridge the communication gap between patients and care-professionals?
  • Could information design really alleviate some of the pressures on healthcare systems?
  • How to visualise information about risks and benefits?


We welcome presentations on topics such as signage, instructions, forms, maps, diagrams, symbols, in both digital and analogue situations. These could be based on research, education, professional practice as well as and historical perspectives.
