                              SetVR 2016

      International Workshop on Set Visualisation and Reasoning
        7 August 2016, Philadelphia, United States of America
                   (co-located with DIAGRAMS 2016)

---- Important Dates ----

Submission of papers: 11 April 2016
Notification of acceptance/rejection: 16 May 2016
Final version due: 11 July 2016
Workshop: 7 August 2016

---- Aims and Scope ----

The International Workshop on Set Visualisation and Reasoning
(previously called the
Euler Diagrams Workshop) aims to bring together researchers in the
field. The
community publishes in a diverse range of outlets, hence a single workshop
provides a unique opportunity to share ideas and practice.

The topic of the workshop includes established set representations like
Euler/Venn diagrams and matrices as well as new formalisms, such as
linear diagrams
and line-sets. The workshop scope covers methods for laying out,
reasoning with and
evaluating set visualisations.

As new notations come online, this workshop will provide a focal point
for early-stage
research alongside more advanced contributions, enabling a better
of how we visualize and reason about sets. Application areas for this
are broad and encompass many other disciplines, such as biosciences,
and criminology. Submissions detailing novel applications of visual set
representations are welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Theoretical Advances:
- diagrammatic drawability
- layout constraints
- logic
- reasoning
- novel forms of set visualisation

Software Support:
- visualisation generation
- mechanisms for interaction
- tools for dynamic set data
- automated reasoning
- layout algorithms
- data exploration

Real-World Applications:
- big data
- system modelling
- education
- social networks
- biosciences
- security

Cognition and Perceptual Principles:
- readability
- aesthetics
- evaluation and comparisons

---- Paper Submission and Publication ----

We solicit submissions on the topics mentioned above and other related
in the following forms:

full papers (15 pages), consisting of:
- original research
- surveys

short papers (7 pages), consisting of:
- systems descriptions
- software demonstrations
- position statements
- early original research contributions

All submissions should be in LNCS format
Please submit via EasyChair

We plan to publish the proceedings of the workshop in the CEUR Workshop
Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org).
