CALL FOR PAPERS: special issue of JoLLI on "Euler and Venn diagrams"
Call for Papers: Euler and Venn diagrams Special issue of the Journal of Logic, Language and Information (JOLLI) Overview Euler and Venn diagrams have been widely studied over recent years and their role in logical reasoning and information visualization is now prominent. Venn diagrams formed the basis of what is widely regarded to be the first sound and complete diagrammatic logic, called Venn-I, developed by Sun-Joo Shin in the 1990s. Since then, substantial research has been conducted on Euler and Venn diagrams, spanning logic, cognitive science and philosophy. We will consider submissions that focus on any aspect of Euler and Venn diagrams research, that falls within the scope of JOLLI, and encourage submissions from any discipline. The proposed special issue will bring together a valuable collection of papers for researchers working in this area. Submissions We solicit papers consisting of original research contributions. Submitted papers that extend previously published conference papers should be submitted with a cover note to the editors explaining the contribution beyond the earlier version. It is expected that substantial new material is included in the submission to the special issue. All submitted papers should fall within the scope of JOLLI as well as the scope of the special issue. Formatting guidelines and details of the scope of JOLLI can be found on the journal's web page: http://www.springer.com/philosophy/logic+and+philosophy+of+language/journal/10849 Submission is via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=evd2015 All papers will be subject to full peer review in line with standard JOLLI practice.
