Euler Diagrams 2012
3rd International Workshop on Euler Diagrams

July 2, 2012
Canterbury, UK

Held in conjunction with Diagrams 2012


Submissions are now closed

Notification: Friday, May 4, 2012
Early registration: Friday, May 11, 2012

Proceedings published by CEUR.
Best papers invited to submit to a special issue of the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing: Visualization and Reasoning with Euler Diagrams.


Euler diagrams represent relationships between sets, including intersection, containment, and disjointness. These diagrams have become the foundations of various visual languages and have notably facilitated the modelling of, and logical reasoning about, complex systems. Over the years, they have been extensively used in areas such as biosciences, business, criminology and national security to intuitively visualize relationships and relative cardinalities of sets. This widespread adoption has allowed analysis of complex collections of data.

The workshop will cover all aspects of Euler diagram research, including, but not limited to:

+ theoretical advances:
.... drawability
.... layouts
.... logic
.... reasoning

+ software support:
.... diagram generation
.... automated reasoning
.... data exploration

+ real-world applications:
.... system modelling
.... information visualization
.... education

+ cognition and perceptual principles:
.... readability
.... aesthetics
.... evaluation including comparison to other representations

Recently, there have been significant advances in all of the above areas. This workshop of peer-reviewed submissions will afford the growing Euler diagrams community the opportunity to present and discuss new research, and share expertise. It is envisaged that this will stimulate collaborations on current and future research needs. This will be the third Euler diagrams workshop (after two successful workshops in 2004 and 2005) and will again bring together researchers with diverse backgrounds, from both academic and industry including: mathematicians, computer scientists, artificial intelligence experts, information designers, visualization experts, human-computer interaction experts and users from various application areas.



We solicit submissions on the topics mentioned above, in the following forms:

+ full papers (15 pages), consisting of:
.... original research
.... surveys

+ short papers (7 pages), consisting of:
.... systems descriptions
.... software demonstrations
.... position statements
.... original research contributions

The formatting style is LNCS. The necessary style files are available at
Submissions are now open! Papers should be submitted via EasyChair (


A preprint of the proceedings will be available at the workshop.
The proceedings will be published by CEUR, and will be available after the workshop.
In addition, authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue of the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing on Visualization and Reasoning with Euler Diagrams.


For both full and short papers:

- Abstract submission (optional): Friday, March 30, 2012
- Paper submission: Friday, April 6, 2012
- Notification: Friday, May 4, 2012
- Early registration: Friday, May 11, 2012
- Camera ready copy: Friday, May 25, 2012
- Workshop: Monday, July 2, 2012


Attendees can register for the workshop only.
However, there will be a discount for those registering for both the workshop and main Diagrams conference.
Details will be available at


The workshop and the main Diagrams conference will be held on the campus of the University of Kent in the ancient cathedral city of Canterbury in Kent, which is less than an hour from London by train. Accommodation will be provided on campus with very flexible bookings. It will be possible to book accommodation for only the workshop date or any other specific dates during the week, with possible extensions before and after the main Diagrams conference.
