The last few decades have witnessed a lively debate on whether visual mental representations are a real part of human cognition. Likewise, AI systems have varied in how heavily they rely on visual systems of knowledge representation, from purely proposition-based production systems that contain no explicit visual reasoning to systems that use overt models of visual knowledge. Advances in this area may enable more extensive autonomous reasoning in visual domains, foster deeper computational support for and understanding of human problem solving, modeling, and design, and improve human-machine interaction through more intense and effective use of visual representations. Drawing participants from diverse research communities such as AI, HCI, cognitive science, learning science, and design science, this interdisciplinary workshop aims to describe and discuss the latest scientific research that may inform and influence progress towards these goals.

Topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Cognitive architectures
* Visual and propositional comparisons
* Diagrammatic reasoning
* Educational theory, technology, and practice
* Formal theories of visual representation
* High-level perception
* Mental images in cognition
* Multi-modal representations and reasoning
* Sketch understanding
* Spatial representations and reasoning
* Visual media theory and applications
* Visual representations and mental models
* Visual representations in creativity and design
* Visual representations in human culture
* Visual similarity and analogy


We welcome two types of submissions: full papers (6-8 pages) and shorter extended abstracts or position papers (2-3 pages). Submissions must follow the standard IJCAI two-column format, and PDF submission instructions can be found on the workshop website:

The deadline for all types of submissions is March 14, 2011. Submission is now open.
