IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing • October 11
–14, 2017 • Raleigh, North Carolina, USA

October 11 - 14, 2017 -- Raleigh, North Carolina

Deadline for paper submissions is April 13th.

We solicit original, unpublished research papers on computing technologies
and visual languages for programming, modelling and communicating. These
technologies should be easier to learn, use or understand than the current
state-of-the-art, and papers should focus on efforts to design, formalize,
implement, or evaluate them. This includes tools and visual languages
intended for general audiences (e.g. professional or novice programmers, or
the public) or domain-specific audiences (e.g. people working in
healthcare, urban design or scientific domains). It encompasses languages
and tools for expressing forms of computation and reasoning and in any
computing context.

This year’s special topic is Programming and Play. Visual languages play a
crucial role in exploratory programming, especially when individuals are
learning to program. Subjects fitting within this topic include
gamification of programming, problem solving reward systems and making
computer science education fun.

In addition to papers, we also invite contributions through showpieces
(Posters & Demos) and participation in our Graduate Consortium.
