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)


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


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:

Submission is via EasyChair:

All papers will be subject to full peer review in line with
standard JOLLI practice.
