VL/HCC 2022
Mon 12 - Fri 16 September 2022 Rome, Italy

Welcome to VL/HCC 2022!

From the beginning of the computer age, people have sought easier ways to learn, express, and understand computational ideas. Whether this meant moving from punch cards to textual languages, or command lines to graphical UIs, the quest to make computation easier to express, manipulate, and understand by a broader group of people is an ongoing challenge.

The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing is the premier international forum for research on this topic. Established in 1984, the mission of the conference is to support the design, theory, application, and evaluation of computing technologies and languages for programming, modeling, and communicating, which are easier to learn, use, and understand by people.

The 2022 symposium is scheduled to take place September 12-16 in Rome, Italy. Our special emphasis for 2022 is Human-Centric AI. VL/HCC 2022 is 100% Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing (TCMC).

VL/HCC is indexed in Scopus, DBLP, IEEE Explore, WoS.

The Symposium is planned to be in presence. In any case, we are monitoring the Covid situation and will act according to decisions of the authorities to insure the safest and widest participation.

COVID Precautions

For the activities at DIAG (Graduate Consortium), masks are mandatory to enter the Department, and so is temperature check (no entrance if temperature above 37.5).

For the activities at the Auditorium Antonianum (VL/HCC main conference and joint session with Diagrams) masks are recommended in crowded areas, so participants may have them on hand.
