VL/HCC 2020
Tue 11 - Fri 14 August 2020 Dunedin, New Zealand

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 (VL/HCC) 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 2020 edition of the symposium was supposed to take place August 11-14 in Dunedin, New Zealand, but will now be converted into an all-digital conference experience due to COVID-19. IEEE VL/HCC 2020 is 100% Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Multimedia Computing (TCMC). Special Emphasis for 2020: Amplifiers for Human Learning and Creativity.

IEEE VL/HCC 2020 will be virtually co-located the same week as the ACM International Computing Education Research (ICER) 2020 conference, https://icer.acm.org/
