Subject: Call for Participation: DIAGRAMS 2000
An International Conference on the Theory and Application of Diagrams
First call for participation.
September 1-3, 2000
University of Edinburgh
Driven by the pervasiveness of diagrams in human communication and by the
increasing availability of graphical environments in computerised work, the
study of diagrammatic notations is emerging as a research field in its own
right. Diagrams 2000 is intended to become the premier international
conference series in this field and will attract participants from applied
linguistics, architecture, artificial intelligence, cognitive science,
computer science, education, graphic design, history of science,
human-computer interaction, philosophical logic, psychology and other
areas. It merges successful workshop series that have been organised
during the last few years: Thinking with Diagrams, Theory of Visual
Languages, Reasoning with Diagrammatic Representations, and Formalizing
Reasoning with Visual and Diagrammatic Representations. Diagrams 2000
provides a forum with sufficient breadth of scope to encompass researchers
from all academic areas who are studying the nature of diagrammatic
representations and their use by humans and in machines.
The programe will include invited talks and tutorials by Alan M.
MacEachren, Kim Marriott, David Gooding, Hermi Schijf, Jiajie Zhang. In
response to the call for papers over 120 papers and posters were submitted.
After review 31 full papers and 10 posters have been invited for
presentation and publication. The proceedings of Diagrams 2000 is to be
published as a volume in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence (see http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Diag2000/programme.html for
list of contents and abstracts).
Diagrams 2000 is:
- in cooperation with the American Association for Artificial Intelligence
- funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
- hosted by the Human Communication Research Centre (HCRC).
Michael Anderson, University of Hartford (USA)
