Kluwer Academic Publishing is pleased to announce Volume 1 of

 D I A G R A M S

A new journal fostering an interdisciplinary approach to the study of
representational systems.

Diagrams play a central role in many important endeavors. Diagrams,
the first journal to explore all aspects of the theory, design and use
of diagrams from multiple perspectives, will present high quality peer
reviewed research from all academic disciplines with the intention of
advancing our understanding of these fundamental forms of
representation. By investigating the nature of diagrammatic
representations in the broadest sense we hope to gain critical
insights into our intellectual, cognitive, social, cultural, and
technological lives.

Diagrams targets topics that provide insight into the nature and use of
diagrams, including:
 - novel representations that support multiple tasks in substantial domains
 - principles for the design of effective diagrams
 - encoding high dimensionality information in 2D displays
 - visual and cognitive processes underpinning diagram use
 - techniques and tools to support the creation of complex diagrams
 - social and cultural aspects of diagram use
 - analysis of alternative representations
 - historical evolution of representational systems
 - roles and use of multiple representations
 - experimental and analytic techniques for the study of diagrams
 - computational aspects of diagrams
