CALL FOR PAPERS

2010 IEEE Symposium on
Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing
(VL/HCC'10)

Madrid, Spain, 21-25 September 2010

http://dei.inf.uc3m.es/vlhcc10/

From the beginning of the computer age, researchers and computing
practitioners have sought ways to make interactions with computers more
human-oriented. For example, visual languages have long been used to
provide effective communication between humans and computers. Visual
languages have been successfully employed for end-user programming,
modeling, and rapid prototyping; they have supported design activities
by people of many disciplines and backgrounds including architects,
artists, children, engineers, and scientists. In the last few years, a
number of languages and technologies have incorporated visual interfaces
to facilitate human-human communication through Web technology and
electronic mobile devices.

The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing
(VL/HCC) is the premier international forum for researchers and
industrial practitioners to discuss the theory, applications and
evaluation of technologies, visual and otherwise, that make computing more
accessible to humans.

Established in 1984, the mission of the IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages
and Human-Centric Computing is to support the design, formalization,
implementation, and evaluation of computing languages that are easier to
learn, easier to use, and easier to understand by a broader group of
people.

This includes all research aimed at the above mission, regardless of
whether it uses entirely visual technology, text, sound, virtual reality,
the Web, or other technologies. Examples of research addressing this
problem include, but are not limited to, language and environment design
and implementation; theory and empirical studies that support the many
media used toward this goal; and software comprehension (including
software visualization), modeling, and engineering, especially as they are
applied toward the above goal.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCOPE AND TOPICS
------------------------------------------------------------------------

We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on one or
more aspects of human-centric computing technology--for instance visual
programming or interaction, text, sound, virtual reality, the Web, or
other multimedia technologies.

Research papers may address cognitive, social, cultural and design
aspects, underlying theories, formal methods, taxonomies, implementation
efforts, tool support, and empirical studies. We also solicit short papers
that present work in progress or demonstrations of tools. Areas of
interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Visual languages for programming, modeling, and communication
- Visual domain-specific languages
- End-user software development
- Computer-mediated human-human communication
- Empirical studies of human-centric software technologies
- Languages and tools for domain-specific software development
- Multimodal interaction
- Sketch and Gestural Computing
- Software visualization and algorithm animation
- Visual or multidimensional model-driven development
- Visual and Spatial/Temporal Reasoning
- Visual Query Languages and Databases
- Visual Techniques for Business Processes and Workflow

------------------------------------------------------------------------
PAPER SUBMISSION
------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite two different types of paper submissions:

(a) full-length papers, up to eight pages, reporting on research or
experience, and
(b) short papers, up to four pages, describing work in progress or
tool demonstrations.

All papers must be formatted in IEEE double-column conference format and
must be submitted electronically. All submissions will be reviewed by
members of the international Program Committee. To help us assign papers
to reviewers, we require authors to submit abstracts of their papers two
weeks prior to the paper submission deadline.

Accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings of VL/HCC 2010, published
by the IEEE Computer Society. The paper submission deadline is March 8,
2010.The conference also invites submissions for workshops and tutorials
to be held in conjunction with the symposium; more details will be posted
soon.
