MAY 27 TO 29, 2024

Graphic Horizons is the starting point of a graphic adventure that will take us further: GRAPHIC HORIZONS has an existential component of being and its interpretation that no matter how far we advance, it will always be ahead. But it is also linked to the future, to hope, to utopia or to a distant reference, that need to see a little further.

In this society, events and changes happen to us and force us to adapt to these new situations that transform and influence our world where the field of graphic expression is no stranger to this future. The future of our area of knowledge will depend on our ability to adapt.

The dissemination of our research and teaching experiences started precisely from the EGA Conference held in La Coruña in 1984 and have had a constant and renewed desire for debate through the 19 editions held every two years that preceded us uninterruptedly from the Congress of Seville in 1986, and from the III EGA Valencia Congress (1990) they have had an international character. In 2002 the IX International EGA Congress returns to La Coruña. Now we pick up the witness of the EGA Congress held in Cartagena, and the circumstances have wanted this XX International Congress EGA 2024 to be held again in a shared way: The EGA department of the University of Coruña with our colleagues from the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto that in May 2024 we will meet again.

Our Congress entitled GRAPHIC HORIZONS will have the thematic lines that we list below:

As in previous Congresses, all those communications developed within the field of Architectural Graphic Expression will be admitted, which will be valued and accepted by the peer reviewers.

In the scheduled structure of the Congress, each line of work will be developed with the previous summary of all the accepted communications. The summary presentation of a limited number of communications will serve as an introduction to the debate led by members of the Scientific Committee.

In the development of the program of the Congress, there will be presentations by references of the Honorary Committee and one belonging to an active architect of recognized international prestige.

Mail from the academic committee of the EGA Coruña department:
