Dear Colleagues,

the combination of

    visual languages and formal methods

is one of the traditional main topics of the IEEE
VL/HCC conference series with a history of more than
20 years! It is still time to write a submission
for this year's event (and to book a flight to
Dallas ... ).

Hope to see you in Dallas later this year!

                  CALL FOR PAPERS

      2005 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages
      and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC'05)

      Dallas, Texas, USA, 21-24 September 2005

* New Deadline of Paper Submission: 30 March 2005 *

Visual languages (VLs) have long been a means of
effective communication between human and machine.
Today, they are successfully employed for end-user
programming, modeling, rapid prototyping, and
design activities by people of many disciplines
including architects, artists, children, engineers,
and scientists. In addition, visual languages and
technologies are increasingly being used to
facilitate human-human communication through the
Internet Web technology, and electronic mobile

The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and
Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC) is the premier
international forum for researchers and industrial
practitioners to discuss the state-of-the-art in
visual languages and their applications. This year,
VL/HCC'05 together with several satellite events
will be held in Dallas, Texas, USA, in the heart
of the complex of over 600 major multinational
technology corporations known as the Telecom

                  SCOPE AND TOPICS

We solicit original, unpublished research papers
that focus on some aspect of visual language or
human-centric computing technology, whether it be
visual technology, text, sound, taste, virtual
reality, the Web, or other multimedia technologies.
Research papers may address cognitive and design
aspects, underlying theories, taxonomies,
implementation work, tool support, and case studies.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to
the following:

* End-User and Domain-Specific Languages
* Empirical Studies of Visual Languages and End-User Programming
* Human-Centric Software Development
* Multimedia Authoring Languages
* Multi-Modal Interaction
* Software Visualization and Animation
* Theory of Visual Languages
* Visual Languages for Design
* Visual Languages for Education
* Visual Languages in Software Engineering
* Visual Modeling and Specification Languages
* Visual Programming Environments
* Visual Query Languages and Databases
* Visual Techniques for Business Processes and Workflow

                  STUDENT EVENT

VL/HCC is anticipating a fully funded graduate student
consortium for graduate students working on research
relevant to VL/HCC. As in prior years, funding to
provide transportation, housing, and registration for
graduate student participants is anticipated. The
application process details should be similar to that
of prior years; details will become available later
this year.

                 PAPER SUBMISSION

Submissions that address research and development,
as well as experience reports and tool demonstration
proposals on the above and other related topics are
strongly encouraged. All the submitted papers will
be reviewed by the international Program Committee
members. Accepted papers will be published in the
Proceedings of VL/HCC'05 by the IEEE Computer
Society. A selection of the best papers will be
invited for subsequent publication in a special issue
of the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing.
Research papers and experience reports of up to eight
(8) and tool demonstrations of up to two (2) IEEE
double-column pages should be submitted electronically.
Detailed information on electronic submission can be
found at the VL/HCC'05 Web site:
