Call For Interactive Sessions Proposals

The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC) 2010 will be a forum for demos and panels (Interactive Sessions) on emerging as well as established topics relevant to the theory, applications and evaluation of technologies on Visual Languages and Human-Centric research.
The organization of demos will be shared between the VL/HCC organizers and the proposers, while the VL/HCC organizers will handle the organization of panels.
The steering and organizing committees will evaluate proposals. Decisions will be communicated to the proposers by June 1st 2010. The actual activation of panels is subject to the presence of an adequately sizeable attendance.

Demos demonstrate how user experience and visual languages and interaction professionals and researchers have applied human-computer
interaction to create practical solutions to domain specific situations. Presentations may include areas such as: challenges faced in implementing methods and techniques; development of new or improved
techniques; or incorporating Visual languages and Human-Centric approaches into an organization (industrial case studies).

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: visual technology, multimodal interaction, virtual reality, the web, or any other technologies related to conference topics. Demos will be accompanied by a demonstration of the software prototype. Demonstrators should use their personal laptops, or provide adequate equipment for installation. Demonstration proposals should be submitted by June 1st 2010 to amalizia@inf.uc3m.es and tanimoto@cs.washington.edu

We solicit the submission of Poster abstracts describing promising work in progress. Poster abstracts should not exceed 2 pages in IEEE Proceedings format. These abstracts will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE, and will be presented as posters.
Besides a dedicated session, we plan to have posters on Display throughout the whole Conference, with adequate time for discussion. Submission deadline June 1st 2010.

Panels should focus on emerging research, controversial issues, or unsolved problems in the VL/HCC community. The goal of a panel is debate. Therefore panels should always reflect more than one point of view.

Panels should be provocative and lively and should inspire thoughtful, engaged discussion, at the event itself and beyond. We expect the panelists to actively engage the audience and help them gain a deeper understanding of important and of controversial issues. All areas of interests to VL/HCC participants are acceptable as panel topics.

Please contact us before the deadline if you have an idea you would like to discuss with us for suitability. Panel proposals will be accepted on the basis of their audience appeal, credentials of panelists, originality, and focus on disputed topics.

Proposal submission deadline June 1st 2010.
Interactive Sessions chairs: Alessio Malizia (amalizia@inf.uc3m.es) and Steve Tanimoto (tanimoto@cs.washington.edu).
