CALL FOR PAPERS: Euler Diagrams, 28 Jul 2014, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA


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

ED 2014:
Diagrams 2014:
VL/HCC 2014:

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

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
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

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 will invite authors of the best papers to
submit extended versions of their work to a special issue of the Journal
of Logic, Language and Information.

We are pleased to announce that Atsushi Shimojima will give the keynote
talk, entitled "Euler systems as feature indicator systems". Atsushi
Shimojima is Professor of Culture and Information Science at Doshisha
University in Japan. His research so far has been focused on applying
semantical analysis of diagrammatic systems to make predictions on their
cognitive potentials and verifying these predictions on the basis of
psychological experimentation. A good example of this coupling of
semantic analysis and cognitive science is found in his recent
publication with Yasuhiro Katagiri in the journal, Cognitive Science,
entitled "An Eye-Tracking Study of Exploitations of Spatial Constraints
in Diagrammatic Reasoning". See our webpage for more details.


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.
