Visualization and Reasoning with Euler Diagrams[edit]

Special issue of the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing[edit]

Abstract submission deadline: Friday, September 7, 2012
Paper submission deadline: Friday, October 5, 2012

Euler diagrams represent relationships between sets, including intersection, containment, and disjointness. These diagrams have become the foundations of various visual languages and have notably facilitated the modelling of, and logical reasoning about, complex systems. Over the years, they have been extensively used in areas such as biosciences, business, criminology and national security to intuitively visualize relationships and relative cardinalities of sets. This widespread adoption has allowed analysis of complex collections of data.

The special issue will cover all aspects of Euler diagram research, including, but not limited to:

  • theoretical advances
    • drawability
    • layouts
    • logic
    • reasoning

  • software support
    • diagram generation
    • automated reasoning
    • data exploration

  • real-world applications
    • system modelling
    • information visualization
    • education

  • cognition and perceptual principles
    • readability
    • aesthetics
    • evaluation including comparisons to other representations

All papers will be subject to full peer-review in line with standard JVLC practice.


We solicit submission of papers consisting of original research and surveys, including, but not limited to, substantially extended papers published at Euler Diagrams 2012 and other similar conferences.

Formatting guidelines can be found on the JVLC webpage at http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/622907/authorinstructions.

Submission is via the EasyChair system, at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vred13.
