VL/HCC 2013 - IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing

 

The VL/HCC conference is the premier international forum for researchers and industrial practitioners to discuss the theory, applications and evaluation of technologies, visual and otherwise, that enhance the role of humans in the computing process. The conference was established in 1984 and aims to support the design, formalization, implementation, and evaluation of computing languages that are easier to learn, easier to use, and easier to understand by a broader group of people.

Important dates



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
people.

Scope and Topics
We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on efforts
to design, formalize, implement, and evaluate computing languages and
development tools that are easier to learn, easier to use, and easier
to understand. This includes languages and tools expressed not only as
text, but through any other means (visual, sketch-based, gesture-based,
or otherwise). This also includes languages and tools intended for a
wide range of audiences, including professional software developers,
novice programmers, or other any other people who find a need to
express computational ideas. We also seek papers that address
cognitive, social, cultural, and theoretical aspects of efforts to
lower barriers to computing.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:


Paper Submissions

We invite two kinds of papers (abstracts due 1 March 2013):


All accepted papers, whether full or short, should be complete
archival contributions. Contributions from full papers are more
extensive than those from short papers. Preliminary research should be
submitted to the Showpieces category (below). All submissions will be
reviewed by members of the Program Committee. Submission and reviews
for the technical program are managed with EasyChair at:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vlhcc2013

Accepted papers will be distributed at the conference and will appear
in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. In 2011 the conference paper
format was changed by IEEE, so be sure you are using the new format.

A Note on Evaluation of Papers
Research papers are expected to support their claims with appropriate
evidence. For example, a paper that claims to improve programmer
productivity is expected to demonstrate improved productivity; a paper
that claims to be easier to use should demonstrate increased ease of
use. However, not all claims necessarily need to be supported with
empirical evidence or studies with people. A paper that claims to make
something feasible that was clearly infeasible might substantiate its
claim through the existence of a prototype. Moreover, there are many
alternatives to empirical evidence, including analytical methods or
formal arguments. We encourage authors to think carefully about what
claims their submission makes and what evidence would support them.

Showpieces
Showpieces offer an interactive opportunity to show off your ideas
and/or accomplishments to the VL/HCC community. Formerly called
"posters and demonstrations," the category has expanded in 2013 to
also include videos, downloadable apps, handouts, electronic devices,
physical prototypes, or any other artifacts that facilitate meaningful
interactions with with other conference attendees. More information
is available on the VL/HCC 2013 web site.

Graduate Consortium
The conference will also hold a single-day graduate consortium for
graduate students about their research, and it will have conference
and travel funding for accepted students. Students are encouraged to
submit papers to the main conference as well as to apply to the
consortium. You can read more about the graduate consortium on the VL/HCC 2013 web site.

Workshops and Tutorials
The conference also invites submissions for workshops and tutorials.
More information will be posted on the VL/HCC 2013 web site.
