COVID-19 Announcement Update: May 2020
The IEEE VL/HCC 2020 Organizing Committee and IEEE Computer Society have been monitoring the developing COVID-19 situation. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are announcing that the IEEE VL/HCC 2020, scheduled to be held in-person in Dunedin, New Zealand will now be converted into an all-digital conference experience. The dates of the conference will remain the same. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. More details regarding the conference and online registration will be available soon. For any questions, please contact Craig Anslow.

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 will take place August 10-14 in Dunedin, New Zealand. 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.
