International Colour Association
Association internationale de la couleur
Internationale Vereinigung für die Farbe
The International Colour Association (Association Internationale de la Couleur (AIC), or Internationale Vereinigung für die Farbe) is a learned society whose aims are to encourage research in all aspects of color, to disseminate the knowledge gained from this research, and to promote its application to the solution of problems in the fields of science, art, design and industry on an international basis. The AIC also aims for a close cooperation with existing international organizations, such as, for example, the International Commission on Illumination (CIE), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the International Commission for Optics (ICO), regarding issues concerned with color. The AIC will neither duplicate the work of these bodies nor will it attempt to assume any of their responsibilities. The AIC foundation occurred on 21 June 1967 in Washington DC, USA. The association serves worldwide.
