CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------
VL/HCC 2011
IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing

September 18-22, 2011
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
http://vlhcc2011.cs.cmu.edu/
______________________________________________________________________

PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday 11 March 2011

IMPORTANT DATES
* Paper submissions (firm deadline): 11 March 2011
* Notification of reviews: 27 May 2011
* Rebuttals due: 3 June 2011
* Notification of final decision: 10 June 2011
* Camera-readies due: 1 July 2011

 From the beginning of the computer age, people have sought easier ways
to learn, express, and understand computational ideas. Whether this
meant moving from punch cards to textual languages, or command lines
to graphical UIs, the quest to make computation easier to express,
manipulate, and understand by a broader group of people is an ongoing
challenge. The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric
Computing (VL/HCC) is the premier international forum for research on
this topic. Established in 1984, the mission of the conference is to
support the design, theory, application and evaluation of computing
technologies and languages for programming, modeling and
communicating, which are easier to learn, use, and understand by
people.

SCOPE AND TOPICS
We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on efforts
to design, formalize, implement, and evaluate computing languages and
development tools that are easier to learn, easier to use, and easier
to understand. This includes languages and tools expressed not only as
text, but through any other means (visual, sketch-based, gesture-based,
or otherwise). This also includes languages and tools intended for a
wide range of audiences, including professional software developers,
novice programmers, or other any other people who find a need to
express computational ideas. We also seek papers that address
cognitive, social, cultural, and theoretical aspects of efforts to
lower barriers to computing.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Design, evaluation, and theory of visual languages
* End-user development, end-user programming
* Novel user interfaces for expressing computation
* Human aspects of software development
* Debugging and program understanding
* Computer science education
* Software development tools
* Model-driven development
* Domain-specific languages
* Software visualization
* Query languages
______________________________________________________________________

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
We invite two kinds of papers, due March 11, 2011:
* full-length research papers, up to 8 pages
* short research papers, up to 4 pages

All accepted papers, whether full or short, should be complete
archival contributions. The contribution from full papers are more
extensive than those from short papers. Short papers are not works in
progress; incomplete or ongoing research should be submitted to the
Posters category (see http://vlhcc.org/submitting/posters-demos/).
All submissions will be reviewed by members of the Program Committee.
The paper deadline will not be extended.

Authors may optionally submit a short digital video or interactive
illustration with paper submissions. Since not everyone who reviews
your paper may view the video figure, your submission must stand on
its own and will be reviewed as such. The videos of accepted papers
will be distributed at the conference and will appear in the IEEE
Xplore Digital Library. Video formatting details are available online.

=== A Note on Evaluations ===
Research papers are expected to support their claims with appropriate
evidence. For example, a paper that claims to improve programmer
productivity is expected to demonstrate improved productivity; a paper
that claims to be easier to use should demonstrate increased ease of
use. However, not all claims necessarily need to be supported with
empirical evidence or studies with people. A paper that claims to make
something feasible that was clearly infeasible might substantiate its
claim through the existence of a prototype. Moreover, there are many
alternatives to empirical evidence, including analytical methods or
formal arguments. We encourage authors to think carefully about what
claims their submission makes and what evidence would support them.
