2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: 3rd International Workshop on Euler Diagrams, July 2, 2012, Canterbury, UK
Held in conjunction with Diagrams 2012
Abstract submission deadline: Friday, March 30, 2012 Paper submission deadline: Friday, April 6, 2012 ***** SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN! ***** Proceedings to be published by CEUR. Best papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing: Visualization and Reasoning with Euler Diagrams. Please consider forwarding this call for papers to the appropriate groups or individuals. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Euler diagrams represent relationships between sets, including intersection, containment, and disjointness. These diagrams have become the foundations of various visual languages and have notably facilitated the modelling of, and logical reasoning about, complex systems. Over the years, they have been extensively used in areas such as biosciences, business, criminology and national security to intuitively visualize relationships and relative cardinalities of sets. This widespread adoption has allowed analysis of complex collections of data. The workshop will cover all aspects of Euler diagram research, including, but not limited to: - theoretical advances: o drawability, o layouts, o logic, o reasoning, - software support: o diagram generation, o automated reasoning, o data exploration, - real-world applications: o system modelling, o information visualization, o education, - cognition and perceptual principles: o readability, o aesthetics, o evaluation including comparison to other representations. Recently, there have been significant advances in all of the above areas. This workshop of peer-reviewed submissions will afford the growing Euler diagrams community the opportunity to present and discuss new research, and share expertise. It is envisaged that this will stimulate collaborations on current and future research needs. This will be the third Euler diagrams workshop (after two successful workshops in 2004 and 2005) and will again bring together researchers with diverse backgrounds, from both academic and industry including: mathematicians, computer scientists, artificial intelligence experts, information designers, visualization experts, human-computer interaction experts and users from various application areas. SUBMISSIONS We solicit submission of: - full papers (15 pages), consisting of original research and surveys, - short papers (7 pages), consisting of systems descriptions, software demonstrations, and position statements, as well as original research contributions. The formatting style is LNCS. The necessary style files are available at http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0. Submissions are now open! Papers should be submitted via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ed2012). PROCEEDINGS A preprint of the proceedings will be available at the workshop. The proceedings will be published by CEUR, and will be available after the workshop. In addition, authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue of the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing called Visualization and Reasoning with Euler Diagrams.
