By Alan Blackwell, Kim Marriott, Atsushi Shimojima

Even supposing diagrammatic representations were a function of human com- nication from early historical past, fresh advances in printing and digital media technologyhaveintroducedincreasinglysophisticatedvisualrepresentationsinto everydaylife. we have to increase our knowing of the function of diagramsand sketches in verbal exchange, cognition, artistic idea, and problem-solving. those issues have caused a surge of curiosity within the learn of diagrammatic notations, in particular in educational disciplines facing cognition, compu- tion, and verbal exchange. We think that the learn of diagrammatic conversation is healthier pursued as an interdisciplinary undertaking. The Diagrams convention sequence was once introduced to help a world examine group with this universal aim. After winning conferences in Edinburgh (2000) and Georgia (2002), Diagrams 2004 used to be the 3rd occasion within the sequence. The Diagramsseries draws a largenumber of researchersfrom almost all academic?elds who arestudying the character of d- grammatic representations, their use in human communique, and cognitive or computationalmechanismsforprocessingdiagrams.Bycombiningseveralearlier workshop and symposium sequence that have been held within the US and Europe - R- soning with Diagrammatic Representations (DR), US; considering with Diagrams (TWD), Europe; and thought of visible Languages (TVL), Europe - Diagrams has emerged as a big foreign convention in this subject.

Example text

It can be understood as an object which is not further specified (similar to a variable in first order logic which is existentially quantified, or similar to a wildcard in computer systems). Besides the generic marker, object names are allowed as referents as well. The ovals between concept boxes represent relations between the referents of the concept boxes. The cuts of existential graphs appear in concept graphs with cuts as well (as the name says). But now, as they should not be confused with relation ovals, they are drawn bold.
