                         Second Call for Papers

                             DIAGRAMS 2002

                    Second International Conference
                  Theory and Application of Diagrams

               Callaway Gardens & Resort, Georgia, USA
                         April 18-20, 2002



"Diagrams" is an international and interdisciplinary conference series
on the theory and application of diagrams in any scientific field of
enquiry. From early human history, diagrams have been pervasive in
human communication. The recent rise of multimedia technology that has
turned advanced visual communication into an integral part of our
everyday reality makes a better understanding of the role of diagrams
and sketches in communication, cognition, creative thought, and
problem-solving a necessity. These developments have triggered a new
surge of interest in the study of diagrammatic notations, which is
driven by several different scientific disciplines concerned with
cognition, computation and communication.

The study of diagrammatic communication as a whole must be pursued as
an interdisciplinary endeavor. "Diagrams 2002" is the second event in
this conference series, which was successfully launched in Edinburgh
in September 2000. It attracts a large number of researchers from
virtually all academic fields that are studying the nature of
diagrammatic representations, their use in human communication, and
cognitive or computational mechanisms for processing diagrams. By
combining several earlier workshop and symposia series that were held
in the US and Europe [Reasoning with Diagrammatic Representations
(DR), US; Thinking with Diagrams (TWD), Europe; Theory of Visual
Languages (TVL), Europe], "Diagrams" has emerged as a major
international conference on this topic. It is the only conference that
provides a united forum for all areas that are concerned with the
study of diagrams: architecture, artificial intelligence, cartography,
cognitive science, computer science, education, graphic design,
history of science, human-computer interaction, linguistics,
philosophical logic, and psychology, to name a few.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- computational models of reasoning with and interpretation of
- diagram understanding by humans or machines
- diagram usage in scientific discovery
- formalization of diagrammatic notations
- history of diagrammatic languages and notations
- interactive graphical communication
- novel uses of diagrammatic notations
- psychological issues pertaining to perception, comprehension, and
   production of diagrams
- reasoning with diagrammatic representations
- role of diagrams in applied areas such as visualization
- spatial information and diagrams
- usability issues concerning diagrams

"Diagrams 2002" will consist of technical sessions with presentations
of refereed papers, posters and tutorial sessions. The tutorials will
provide introductions to diagram research in various disciplines in
order to foster a lively interdisciplinary exchange.

We invite submissions of tutorial proposals, full research papers and
extended abstracts of posters. All submissions will be fully peer
reviewed and accepted papers and posters will be published in the
conference proceedings. Further information and submission details
will be available from the conference web site:
