The International Visual Methods Conference (IVMC) is an interdisciplinary conference bringing visual academics, researchers and practitioners together. Held every two years, the IVMC seeks to foster greater dialogue in the area of visual methods, in both theoretical and practical aspects.

Visual methods use a variety of visual tools (images, maps, drawings, graphic novels, photos, films, videos, etc.) to communicate complex concepts. These tools are generated through participatory activities, research and planning activities or even through using already existing visual materials in an original way.

The 2023 conference will take place in Rome hosted by Sapienza University, and will involve workshops and exhibition alongside the conference sessions. The contribution submitted will be published in a conference proceedings e-book supported by an international scientific committee.
