>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

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
