Diagrams 2000 An International Conference on the Theory and Application of Diagrams First call for participation. September 1-3, 2000 University of Edinburgh http://www-cs.hartford.edu/~d2k/ http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Diag2000/programme.html Driven by the pervasiveness of diagrams in human communication and by the increasing availability of graphical environments in computerised work, the study of diagrammatic notations is emerging as a research field in its own right. Diagrams 2000 is intended to become the premier international conference series in this field and will attract participants from applied linguistics, architecture, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, education, graphic design, history of science, human-computer interaction, philosophical logic, psychology and other areas. It merges successful workshop series that have been organised during the last few years: Thinking with Diagrams, Theory of Visual Languages, Reasoning with Diagrammatic Representations, and Formalizing Reasoning with Visual and Diagrammatic Representations. Diagrams 2000 provides a forum with sufficient breadth of scope to encompass researchers from all academic areas who are studying the nature of diagrammatic representations and their use by humans and in machines. The programe will include invited talks and tutorials by Alan M. MacEachren, Kim Marriott, David Gooding, Hermi Schijf, Jiajie Zhang. In response to the call for papers over 120 papers and posters were submitted. After review 31 full papers and 10 posters have been invited for presentation and publication. The proceedings of Diagrams 2000 is to be published as a volume in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (see http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Diag2000/programme.html for list of contents and abstracts). Diagrams 2000 is: - in cooperation with the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) - funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) - hosted by the Human Communication Research Centre (HCRC). Program Chairs: Michael Anderson, University of Hartford (USA) Peter Cheng, University of Nottingham (UK) Volker Haarslev, University of Hamburg (Germany) For further information and to register for the conference please see the Diagrams 2000web site: http://www-cs.hartford.edu/~d2k/ Early registration period ends 23 June, 2000.
