Euler Diagrams 2012: 3rd International Workshop on Euler Diagrams


Euler Diagrams 2012: 3rd International Workshop on Euler Diagrams

Held in conjunction with Diagrams 2012
July 2, 2012
Canterbury, UK


Abstract submission deadline: Friday, March 30, 2012
Paper submission deadline: Friday, April 6, 2012


Proceedings to be published by CEUR.
Best papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of the Journal
of Visual Languages and Computing: Visualization and Reasoning with
Euler Diagrams.

Please consider forwarding this call for papers to the appropriate
groups or individuals.


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 data.

The workshop will cover all aspects of Euler diagram research,
including, but not limited to:

- theoretical advances:
o drawability,
o layouts,
o logic,
o reasoning,

- software support:
o diagram generation,
o automated reasoning,
o data exploration,

- real-world applications:
o system modelling,
o information visualization,
o education,

- cognition and perceptual principles:
o readability,
o aesthetics,
o 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 expertise. It is envisaged that this will
stimulate collaborations on current and future research needs. This will
be the third Euler diagrams workshop (after two successful workshops in
2004 and 2005) and will again bring together researchers with diverse
backgrounds, from both academic and industry including: mathematicians,
computer scientists, artificial intelligence experts, information
designers, visualization experts, human-computer interaction experts and
users from various application areas.


We solicit submission of:

- full papers (15 pages), consisting of original research and surveys,

- short papers (7 pages), consisting of systems descriptions, software
demonstrations, and position statements, as well as original research

The formatting style is LNCS. The necessary style files are available at
Submissions are now open! Papers should be submitted via EasyChair


A preprint of the proceedings will be available at the workshop.
The proceedings will be published by CEUR, and will be available after
the workshop.
In addition, authors of best papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their paper to a special issue of the Journal of
Visual Languages and Computing called Visualization and Reasoning with
Euler Diagrams.
