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 symposium.
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 contributions.
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 2017
Abstracts and Posters categories: full versions due 28th November 2017
The Proceedings will be published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The Long papers, Short papers, and Posters will be indexed by Springer, whilst the Abstracts will not.
