Update and Second Call for Papers
VL'96 is the premier international conference on visual and multimedia computer languages. This year, the theme will be "Visual Languages and Innovation." We are very interested in innovative aspects of visual and multimedia languages and how they affect their users -- whether these users are professional programmers, end-users, or children.
The conference is designed to encourage discussion among people working in the many different aspects aspects of this area. Visual language developers and researchers, HCI specialists, visualization researchers, end-user programming language designers, and multimedia researchers are all invited to join us in exchanging ideas and knowledge from many different points of view. This year the conference will include a number of special features:
Original papers, demonstrations, tutorials, and posters are invited in every area of such languages. Papers may address any aspect, including language design, implementation strategies, theoretical issues, usability, and practicality in the real world. We are especially interested in how this work adds new insights into how to build innovative languages: how does a particular feature provide greater support for some task than has been accomplished before? Who does this feature help, why, and how do we know? How is it different from other approaches? What is needed to make even more gains?
Sample topics include (but are not limited to):
The deadlines for paper and poster submissions is Feb. 12. Tutorials and other events have different deadlines (see the web page for details).
Please see our web page for more information on our keynoters, the special events, how to submit tutorial proposals and demo proposals, how to be a part of the Child's Play event, how to participate in the LegoBrick Challenge, the lovely conference hotel in downtown Boulder, and more.
