CALL FOR PAPERS: 4th International Workshop on Euler Diagrams, July 28, 2014, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA


ED 2014

**Co-Located with Diagrams 2014 and VL/HCC 2014 in Melbourne, Australia **

ED 2014: http://www.diagrams-conference.org/2014/ED2014

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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: ?drawability, layouts, logic, reasoning,
Software Support: diagram generation, automated reasoning, data
exploration,
Real-World Applications: system modelling, information visualization,
education,
Cognition and Perceptual Principles: readability, aesthetics and
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 multi-interdisciplinary expertise. We envisage
that this will stimulate collaborations on current and future research
needs. This will be the second time the workshop has run as part of the
Diagrams conference series and the fourth Euler diagrams workshop (after
successful workshops in 2012, 2004 and 2005). The workshop will bring
together researchers with diverse backgrounds, from both academia and
industry including those with expertise in mathematic, computer science,
artificial intelligence, information design, visualization,
human-computer interaction, as well as end-users from various
application area.

We solicit submissions on the topics mentioned above, in the following
forms:

full papers (15 pages), consisting of:
       - original research
       - surveys
short papers (7 pages), consisting of:
       - systems descriptions
       - software demonstrations
       - position statements
       - original research contributions

All submissions should be in Springer?s LNCS format. The proceedings
will be published by CEUR. We plan to organise a special issue of a
journal for extended versions of the best papers.

IMPORTANT DATES
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Abstract submission (optional):  April 21st
Paper submission:                        April 28th
Notification:                           May 27th


Although abstract submission is optional, authors are strongly
encouraged to upload their abstract. Program Committee members will be
asked to bid on papers for review, between the abstract and paper
submission dates. Making your abstract available will help to ensure
that the most appropriate experts review your paper.
