PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS

2nd International Conference on

VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS AND INTERPRETATIONS

Liverpool, UK, September  9 - 12, 2002


Contributions are invited for a multi-disciplinary workshop on Visual

Representations and Interpretations.  This will be a multi-disciplinary

meeting exploring all aspects of visual images, their interpretation,

representation and modeling, and their relationships to other forms of

human knowledge and activities.



SCOPE AND AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP

The value of multi-disciplinary research, the exchanging of ideas and

methods across traditional discipline boundaries, is well recognised.

It could be argued that many of the advances in science and engineering

take place because the ideas, methods and the tools of thought from one

discipline become re-applied in others.



The topic of "the visual" has become increasingly important as advances

in technology have led to multi-media and multi-modal representations,

and extended the range and scope of visual representation and

interpretation in our lives.  Under this broad heading there are many

different perspectives and approaches, from across the entire spectrum

of human knowledge and activity.  The development of advanced graphics

for computer games and film animations, for example, has drawn on and

led developments in computational geometry.  Even outside the

technological sphere, recent controversies over artworks which some have

considered to be blasphemous show the power of the visual to manifest

wildly different interpretations, and to become a topic of everyday

conversation and a focus of political activity.



One goal of this workshop on Visual Representations and Interpretations

is to break down cross-disciplinary barriers, by bringing together

people working in a wide variety of disciplines where visual

representations and interpretations are exploited.


The first Workshop on Visual Representations and Interpretations was

held in Liverpool in 1998.  Contributions to the workshop came from

researchers actively investigating visual representations and

interpretations in a wide variety of areas including: art, architecture,

biology, chemistry, clinical medicine, cognitive science, computer

science, education, engineering, graphic design, linguistics,

mathematics, philosophy, physics, psychology and social science.



VRI2002 aims to build on this good beginning, and to provide a forum for

wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary discussion on visual representations

and interpretations.  Contributions on any aspect of visual

representations and interpretations are welcomed, including, though of

course not limited to:


 - visual representation languages

 - film and photographic interpretation

 - art as argument

 - diagrams and sketches

 - the philosophy, sociology and politics of art and images

 - formalization and representation of images

 - visual human-machine interaction

 - connections between visual and other human senses

 - computational geometry

 - diagrammatic reasoning

 - the modeling of patterns and form

 - blueprints and scale models

 - visual metaphors and knowledge discovery



SUBMISSIONS

Contributions in the form of original research papers are invited.

Papers should be a maximum of 12 pages in length.  There will be the

opportunity to edit accepted papers after the Workshop for inclusion in

the final published proceedings.


Paper submissions should be sent to:
