The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC) celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2004. Predicated on the idea that visual representations can greatly benefit the task of computer programming, the conference has become the premier international forum on VL research. Originally named "Symposium on Visual Languages", the conference has undergone several changes in response to the evolution of the field. Its present name, extended to Human-Centric Computing, reflects the expanded mission of the symposium:

to support the design, formalization, implementation, and evaluation of computing languages that are easier to learn, easier to use, and easier to understand by a broader group of people.
This includes all research aimed at the above mission, regardless of whether it is focuses entirely on visual technology, text, or instead focuses on the use of sound, taste, virtual reality, the web, or other technologies. Examples of research in this area include, but are not limited to, language/environmental design aspects, theory that supports the many media used toward this goal, implementation aspects, empirical work, software comprehension aspects (including software visualization), and software modeling and/or software engineering aspects.

Following the 2003 edition in New Zealand, this year's symposium will be held from September 26-29, 2004 in Rome Italy, the site of the 1989 edition. This wonderful city affords participants a unique environment for scientific discussion. Distinguished researchers, including Paul Dourish of the University of California, Irvine, USA, and Margaret-Anne Storey of the University of Victoria, Canada, will give talks on relevant and emerging issues related to the field of visual languages and human-centric computing. The conference also includes a demo section of working prototype systems that provide a closer look at recent results within this broad area.

VL/HCC 2004 will be colocated with ICGT 2004, (International Conference on Graph Transformation), the premier venue for research and applications in the field of Graph Transformations. Joint participation in the two conferences is highly recommended and will be facilitated.
