28-29 October 2013, International Workshop on Diagram Logic and Cognition 2013, Kolkata, India

Date: 28-29 October 2013
Location: Kolkata, India
Deadline: 2 July 2013

Our world is increasingly visual, and diagrams are an essential aspect of many of the fields that try to make sense of it. These include demography, cartography, medical imaging, aviation, and so on. In particular, diagrammatic logic is gaining ground in logic and mathematics as an alternative to or when used in parallel with symbolic logics, and recent years have seen the appearance of increasingly expressive diagrammatic systems.

The purpose of the workshop is manyfold. Firstly, we want to gain deeper insights into the activities involved in reasoning with diagrammatic systems: how can a modern, highly-expressive diagrammatic logic help with inferential tasks in practice, such as those undertaken in the field of knowledge engineering? Our second purpose, closely related to the first, is cognition: the verbaliser-visualiser cognitive style classification. Finally, our meeting will also focus on the topics of diagram aesthetics and visual complexity.

We invite authors to submit an extended abstract (3-4 pages) via easychair. Submission period ends: 2nd July 2013.
