 Last Chance for VL 98!

VL 98 is only about two weeks away!!  There are various seat sales that
cover the conference period, but the booking deadlines are very close,
so you should contact your travel agent immediately.  From most places
within the US you should be able to get a fare of approximately $500 US
or less.  Many fares from overseas are also currently discounted.  If
your travel agent has difficulties please feel free to contact me and I
can investigate things at this end.

Note that a Canadian dollar currently costs about 66 cents US, which
puts the conference hotel at less than $80 US per night.  Also, we're
extending the deadline for early registrations (only on-site
registrations will be charged the late registration rate).  The fee for
IEEE/CS members works out to less than $315 US!

More information, including registration and hotel booking forms, is
available at:   http://www.*-*-*.com/

Demos, both of academic research systems and commercial products, are
invited from all registered participants.  Just e-mail me and space will
be reserved for you at no additional cost (demonstrators must bring
their own equipment).

VL98 is the premiere international conference on visual computer
languages. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers
and industrial professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds to
present and discuss their ongoing work on visual communication with
computers. We are interested in visual computer languages in the broad
sense of the term, ranging from high-level graphical tools for
programming professionals, to graphical database query languages, to
languages for children to create simulation environments. In past years
attendees have come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including
human-computer interaction, programming languages theory and practice,
psychology of programmers, computer-aided design, multimedia, database
systems, geographical information systems, software engineering, and
computer science education. We also draw participants from both industry
and academia, including students as well as professionals. This year we
are particularly interested in increasing attendance from the human
psychology community, including human computer interaction, empirical
studies (qualitative as well as quantitative), psychology of
programmers, and related fields.
