Current Workshop

SetVR 2020

International Workshop on Set Visualization and Reasoning
August 2020, Tallinn, Estonia
(co-located with Diagrams 2020)

SetVR 2020 will be the 7th meeting, with the first one held in 2004, previously called the Euler Diagrams Workshop. It aims to promote theoretical, empirical, applied research on visualization and diagrammatic reasoning, especially, about sets (set-theoretical and grouped data). SetVR 2020 will run as part of Diagrams 2020 conference, which will be held from August 24th to 28th in 2020, and is expected to occupy one day during this period

SetVR 2020 will encourage researchers to submit papers on set visualization and reasoning in the following areas (but not limited to):
  • Information Visualization: diagram/graph drawing and layout, data visualization, ontology visualization, human-computer interaction
  • Diagrammatic Logic: formalization, inference system, expressiveness, decidability, computational complexity, automated reasoning, history of notation
  • Cognitive Science: efficacy evaluation, cognitive process, cognitive model, educational outcome
  • Historical and philosophical dimensions related to set visualization and reasoning.
  • Application of Diagrams: visual modeling, real world reasoning, ontology engineering, data exploration

Call for papers
SetVR 2020 welcomes the following types of contributions, in Springer LNCS style:
