VL/HCC 2018 Call for Participation
2018 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing
1-4 October, 2018 - Lisbon, Portugal

Early registration deadline: August 31, 2018.
Please come and join us in Lisbon, the Capital of Portugal on October 1-4,
2018 for the IEEE
Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC 2018)!

>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
technologies and languages for programming, modeling, and communicating,
which are easier
to learn, use, and understand by people. We will hold the IEEE Symposium on
Languages and Human-Centric Computing in Lisbon, Portugal.

Highlights of VL/HCC 2018 include three top-level keynotes, two workshops
and a graduate

We selected different types of high quality contributions: 19 technical
research papers, 12 short
papers essentially describing ongoing work, 6 tool demonstrations and 13
posters. The final
program will soon be completed and available online. Meanwhile you can
consult all these
contributions under the Program menu in the VL/HCC 2018 web page:
