Call For Papers

(copied from flyer available from the conference web page:)

Diagrams 2018 is the tenth conference in the biennial
series that started in 2000. The multidisciplinary nature of
Diagrams means it encompasses: architecture, art,
artificial intelligence, biology, cartography, cognitive
science, computer science, education, graphic design,
history of science, human-computer interaction, linguis-
tics, logic, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, and
software modelling. The conference attracts a large
number of researchers from these interrelated fields,
positioning Diagrams as the major international event in
the area.

Diagrams 2018 will be hosted by Edinburgh Napier
University in the UK. The conference venue is located
within a short distance of the UNESCO World Heritage
designated-centre of Edinburgh. This makes the venue an
ideal location for delegates to explore the vibrant city,
famous for its castle, culture, and history.
The organisers are pleased to be able to offer centrally
located, ensuite accommodation to delegates for around
£45 per night which, alongside a low early registration fee
(expected to be under £300 for faculty, £230 for students;
amounts to be confirmed), makes this high-quality confer-
ence research-budget friendly.

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

• applications of diagrams,
• computational models of reasoning with, and interpretation of, diagrams,
• design of diagrammatic notations,
• diagram understanding by humans or machines,
• diagram aesthetics and layout,
• educational uses of diagrams,
• evaluation of diagrammatic notations,
• graphical communication and literacy,
• heterogeneous notations involving diagrams,
• history of diagrammatic notations,
• information visualization using diagrams,
• nature of diagrams and diagramming,
• novel technologies for diagram use,
• philosophy of diagrams (see the Philosophy of Diagrams special call on the web),
• psychological issues pertaining to diagrams(see the Psychology of Diagrams special call on the web),
• reasoning with diagrams,
• semiotics of diagrams,
• software to support the use of diagrams, and
• usability and human-computer interaction issues concerning diagrams.


Diagrams 2018 will include presentations of refereed
Papers, Abstracts, and Posters, alongside tutorials, work-
shop sessions, and a graduate symposium.
We invite submissions for peer review that focus on any
aspect of diagrams research, as follows:
• Long Papers (16 pages)
• Abstracts (3 pages)
• Short Papers (8 pages)
• Posters (4 pages – this is both a maximum and
minimum requirement)

All submissions should include diagrams where appropri-
ate. Submission of Long Papers, Abstracts, Short Papers,
and Posters should be made to either the main conference
track, or one of the special session tracks, on the philoso-
phy of diagrams and the psychology of diagrams.
Long Papers and Short Papers should report on original
research contributions.

Submissions to the Abstracts category should report on
significant research contributions, which may have been
published elsewhere (such submissions must clearly cite
prior work) or are intended to be published elsewhere. The
contribution should be of a similar level to that expected of
a Long Paper. Submissions to the Abstracts category will
not be included as an archival contribution in the proceed-
ings. Accepted Abstract submissions will be offered the
same presentation time in the program as Long papers.
Posters may report on original, yet early stage, research or
on previously published research that is of interest to the
Diagrams community (such submissions must clearly cite
prior work).
