Call for Papers: Philosophy of Diagrams Special Track
Diagrams 2018: 10th International Conference on the Theory and 
Application of Diagrams
Conference dates: 18th - 22nd June 2018
Location: Edinburgh, UK

Diagrams 2018 is the tenth conference in the biennial series that 
started in 2000, which provides a united forum for all areas concerned 
with the study of diagrams.
For 2018, we will have a special track devoted to philosophical issues 
pertaining to diagrams. Special theme topics include any research on the 
philosophy of diagrams, such as:

- aesthetic properties of diagrams,
- diagrams for syllogisms,
- diagrams in mathematical practice,
- diagrams in the mind,
- historical aspects of diagrams,
- iconicity and naturalness of diagrams,
- imagination,
- philosophy of notation,
- reasoning and argumentation with diagrams,
- semantics of diagrams,
- semiotics of diagrams,
- square of opposition, trees and graphs,
- the nature of diagrams and diagramming,
- the work of C. S. Peirce,
- visualization and intuition.

Submission Categories

Diagrams 2018 will include presentations of refereed Papers, Abstracts, 
and Posters, alongside tutorials, workshop sessions, and a graduate 
We invite submissions for peer review that focus on any aspect of 
diagrams research, as follows:

- Long Papers (16 pages)
- Abstracts (3 pages)
- Short Papers (8 pages)
- Posters (4 pages – this is both a maximum and minimum requirement)

All submissions should include diagrams where appropriate.
Long Papers and Short Papers should report on original research 
Submissions to the Abstracts category should report on significant 
research contributions, which may have been published elsewhere (such 
submissions must clearly cite prior work) or are intended to be 
published elsewhere. The contribution should be of a similar level to
that expected of a Long Paper. Submissions to the Abstracts category 
will not be included as an archival contribution in the proceedings.
Accepted Abstract submissions will be offered the same presentation time 
in the program as Long papers. High quality Abstract submissions that 
nonetheless fall short of the standard required for full acceptance may 
be accepted for a short presentation. The Abstracts
submission category is not intended for work-in-progress; the Poster 
submission category should be used for work-in-progress.
Posters may report on original, yet early stage, research or on 
previously published research that is of interest to the Diagrams 
community (such submissions must clearly cite prior work).


For all Paper, Abstract and Poster submission categories the title and 
descriptive abstract (i.e. a summary of the contribution, up to 200 
words) are required to be submitted before the main submission deadline, 
to permit the allocation of reviewers.
In the case of submissions to the Abstracts category, the title and a 
brief descriptive abstract (up to 200 words) are still required in advance.

All submission categories: pre-submission of title and descriptive 
abstract due 16th November 2017
Long Papers and Short Papers categories: full versions due 23rd November 
Abstracts and Posters categories: full versions due 28th November 2017
