Tutorials

Diagrams is an international interdisciplinary conference series,
covering all aspects of research on the theory and application of
diagrams. We invite proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials.
These tutorials will be held both before and after the main
conference, and will take place at the main conference venue.

Tutorials are expected to address topics that are of interest to the
Diagrams 2020 conference attendees. These include, but are not
limited to, the following:

* applications of diagrams,
* computational models of reasoning with, and interpretation of,
diagrams,
* design of diagrammatic notations,
* diagram understanding by humans or machines,
* diagram aesthetics and layout,
* educational uses of diagrams,
* evaluation of diagrammatic notations,
* graphical communication and literacy,
* heterogeneous notations involving diagrams,
* history of diagrammatic notations,
* information visualization using diagrams,
* nature of diagrams and diagramming,
* novel technologies for diagram use,
* philosophy of diagrams (see the Philosophy of Diagrams special
call),
* psychological issues pertaining to diagrams (see the Psychology
of Diagrams special call),
* reasoning with diagrams,
* semiotics of diagrams,
* software to support the use of diagrams, and
* usability and human-computer interaction issues concerning
diagrams.

Tutorials differ from workshops in that they do not solicit
contributions from attendees. However, attendees have previously
particularly enjoyed tutorials that are interactive and spark
debate.

Examples of previous tutorials may provide some inspiration and
guidance and can be found at:
