Diagrams 2006 - Fourth International Conference on the Theory and Application of Diagrams
June 28-30, 2006
"Diagrams" is an international and interdisciplinary conference series on the theory and application of diagrams in any scientific field of enquiry. From early human history, diagrams have been pervasive in human communication. The recent rise of multimedia technology that has turned advanced visual communication into an integral part of our everyday reality makes a better understanding of the role of diagrams and sketches in communication, cognition, creative thought, and problem-solving a necessity. These developments have triggered a new surge of interest in the study of diagrammatic notations, which is driven by several different scientific disciplines concerned with cognition, computation and communication.
