Call for Papers

Scope and Topics

We solicit original, unpublished research papers on computing technologies and visual languages for modelling, programming, communicating, and reasoning, which are easier to learn, use or understand by humans than the current state-of-the-art. Papers should focus on efforts to design, formalize, implement, or evaluate those technologies and languages. This includes tools and visual languages intended for general audiences (e.g., professional or novice programmers, or the public) or domain-specific audiences (e.g., people working in business administration, production environments, healthcare, urban design or scientific domains).

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Designing Technologies that Accelerate Human Learning
  • Better Ways to Teach and Learn Computational Thinking
  • Interfaces that Induce or Support Creativity
  • AI/ML in Support of Human Cognition
  • Designing for Inclusion and Diversity
  • Cognitive Amplifiers for People with Special Needs
  • Collaboration Support for Creative Work
  • Understanding Dynamics of Technology-Empowered Teams
  • Computer Techniques to Teach Creativity & Problem Solving
  • Fostering Creativity Through Coding
  • Understanding Coding as Creative Problem Solving
  • Visual Languages to Support Workflows for Problem Solving


Special Emphasis for 2020: Amplifiers for Human Learning and Creativity

This year’s special topic is “Amplifiers for Human Learning and Creativity”.
