Scope
------------------------------------

The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing
(VL/HCC)
will be celebrating in 2004 its 20th anniversary. It was established,
based on
the idea that visual representations would greatly benefit the task of
computer programming and has become the premier international
conference on VL
research. Originally named "Symposium on Visual Languages", it has
undergone
several changes in response to the evolution of the field. Its present
name,
extended to Human-Centric Computing, reflects the expanded mission of
the
symposium:

   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
they use entirely visual technology, text, or instead use sound, taste,
virtual reality, the web, or any other technologies. Examples of
research
addressing this problem include but are not limited to
language/environmental
design aspects, theory that supports the many media used toward this
goal,
implementation aspects, empirical work, software comprehension aspects
(including software visualization), and software modeling and/or
software
engineering aspects.

The 2004 edition of the Symposium will be held in Rome, Italy,
September 26
to 29. It will return to this wonderful city after 15 years, since the
1989
edition, and will allow participants to enjoy a unique scenario for
scientific
discussion. Also this year distinguished researchers will be invited to
give
talks on relevant and emerging issues related to the field of Visual
Languages
and Human-Centric Computing. We will also include a demo section of
working
prototype systems to allow a closer look at recent results within this
broad
area.

VL/HCC 2004 will be colocated with ICGT 2004, (International Conference
on
Graph Transformation), the premier venue for research and applications
in the
field of Graph Transformations. Joint participation in the two
conferences is
highly recommended and will be facilitated.
