*CFP: IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing 
(VL/HCC '20)* <>

Location: *Dunedin,**New Zealand,*

Dates: *August 10-14, 2020 *

Key Deadlines:

*Feb 21, 2020 *(for registering abstracts) **

*Feb 28, 2020 *(for full and short paper submissions)

IEEE VL/HCC 2020 will be co-located with the ACM International Computing 
Education Research (*ICER*) 2020 conference,

 From the beginning of the computer age, people have sought easier ways 
to learn, express, and understand computational ideas. Whether this 
meant moving from punched 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 has been and 
continues to be 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. The 2020 edition of the 
symposium will take place August 10-14 in Dunedin, New Zealand

We solicit original, unpublished research papers on computing 
technologies and visual languages for modelling, programming, 
communicating, and reasoning, which are easier to learn, use or 
understand by humans than the current state-of-the-art. Papers should 
focus on efforts to design, formalize, implement, or evaluate those 
technologies and languages. 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 
business administration, production environments, healthcare, urban 
design or scientific domains).The 2020 theme is "Amplifiers for Human 
Learning and Creativity." Please see our website for more details:

In addition to papers, we also invite contributions through Workshops, 
Tutorials, Showpieces (e.g. posters and demos), and participation in our 
Graduate Consortium. VL/HCC 2020 workshops are small meetings intended 
to foster discussion in an area related to the symposium. Tutorials 
allow conference attendees to expand their knowledge by introducing 
researchers to emerging areas or new technologies, or providing an 
overview of the state of the art in an existing research area. Workshops 
and tutorials should be on topics related to the conference, such as 
(but not limited to) end-user programming, visual programming, 
domain-specific languages, software visualization, and CS education. 
Please see our website for more details:
