   IEEE Symposia on Human-Centric Computing Languages and Environments
                           September 3-6, 2002
                           Arlington, VA (USA)


                          Call for Participation

The HCC'02 symposia (formerly the IEEE Visual Language Symposium) are
the premier international conferences on visual and multimedia
languages for creating/understanding software.

We hope you will plan to join us at this year's conferences, which
consist of three symposia, include keynote talks by Ben Bederson,
Clayton Lewis, and Randy Pausch, two tutorials, a social program, and
more. Here are some of the details:

Symposium --- Visual/Multimedia Programming and Software Engineering
      Program Chairs: Gregor Engels and Martin Erwig

Symposium --- Empirical Studies of Programmers
      Program Chairs: Susan Wiedenbeck and Marian Petre

Symposium --- End-User and Domain-Specific Programming
      Program Chairs: Philip Cox and Trevor Smedley

Keynote --- Ben Bederson

      Ben Bederson is a Professor of Computer Science at the University
      of Maryland where he is the director of the Human-Computer
      Interaction Lab (HCIL) working in Information Visualization, user
      interface interaction techniques, and groupware. He is well known
      in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, e.g., for his work on
      Zoomable User interfaces (Pad++ and then Jazz).

Keynote --- Clayton Lewis

      Clayton Lewis is a Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer
      Interaction, at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His main
      interests are in the design of user interfaces that will enable
      people to learn computer systems quickly and use them effectively,
      efficiently, and comfortably. The interface issues he addresses
      are primarily cognitive, that is, having to do with mental
      activities such as perception, memory, learning, and problem
      solving. Moreover he is also interested in computer supported
      negotiation and computer modeling in elementary science.

Keynote --- Randy Pausch

      Randy Pausch is a Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer
      Interaction, and Design at Carnegie Mellon, where he is a founding
      co-director of CMU's Entertainment Technology Center (ETC). He was
      a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator and
      a Lilly Foundation Teaching Fellow. He has consulted with Walt
      Disney Imagineering on the user interface design and testing of
      interactive theme park attractions, particularly for the
      "DisneyQuest" virtual-reality based theme park. He has consulted
      with Google and sits on the Board of Directors of Jupiter Media
      Metrix. Dr. Pausch is the author or co-author of five books and
      over 50 reviewed journal and conference proceedings articles, but
      his mother is most proud that he was asked to write the "Virtual
      Reality" article for the World Book Encyclopedia.

Tutorial --- Visual Languages for Computer-Based Communication
      by Steven L. Tanimoto (University of Washington)

Tutorial --- Design for Usability with Cognitive Dimensions
      by Alan Blackwell (University of Cambridge)

Our social program this year includes a Welcome Reception and an
exciting Conference Banquet which will tentatively be on a "cruise"
along the Potomac with buffet dinner and dance music for those who
want it. And last, but not least, Arlington (VA) is located in the
Washington DC area which offers an abundance of cultural life, area
attractions and so on...

Please join us! More information, including the advance program and
registration details, is available at:
