IEEE symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (2007: Coeur d'Alene, Idaho) Ed. by Philip Cox and John Hosking.

Computer Society Press


276 pages




Papers from a September 2007 symposium, 29 in all, highlight theoretically rooted, empirically driven, validated research into human-centric programming languages and environments. The main themes of the symposium were software engineering theory, teaching and learning, domain-specific or end-user tools, end-user programming evaluations, visualization approaches, formal methods for domain specific and end-user applications, web development approaches, and empirical studies. A final section of papers presents material from the symposium's graduate student consortium. Specific paper topics include children as unwitting end-user programmers, scenario-based requirements for web macro tools, free-choice collaborative learning through social computing, end-user development for teenagers, trace visualization and exploration for reactive systems, and controlling transparency in an online learning environment. There is no subject index.
