By Alan Blackwell, Kim Marriott, Atsushi Shimojima

Even supposing diagrammatic representations were a function of human com- nication from early heritage, fresh advances in printing and digital media technologyhaveintroducedincreasinglysophisticatedvisualrepresentationsinto everydaylife. we have to enhance our realizing of the function of diagramsand sketches in communique, cognition, artistic suggestion, and problem-solving. those issues have brought on a surge of curiosity within the research of diagrammatic notations, in particular in educational disciplines facing cognition, compu- tion, and conversation. We think that the research of diagrammatic verbal exchange is healthier pursued as an interdisciplinary exercise. The Diagrams convention sequence was once introduced to aid a world study group with this universal objective. After profitable conferences in Edinburgh (2000) and Georgia (2002), Diagrams 2004 used to be the 3rd occasion within the sequence. The Diagramsseries draws a largenumber of researchersfrom nearly all academic?elds who arestudying the character of d- grammatic representations, their use in human communique, and cognitive or computationalmechanismsforprocessingdiagrams.Bycombiningseveralearlier workshop and symposium sequence that have been held within the US and Europe - R- soning with Diagrammatic Representations (DR), US; considering with Diagrams (TWD), Europe; and concept of visible Languages (TVL), Europe - Diagrams has emerged as an immense overseas convention in this subject.

A general structure for Conceptual Constituents conceptual categories. These include [Event], [Thing], [Place], [Path]. Lexical items serve as functions which map their arguments into one of the ontological categories. For instance in the sentence John is tall, the verb be is a state-function that maps its arguments (found in the subject and predicate adjective position) into a [State]. Functions can take zero or more argument places. Figure 1. shows a general specification for conceptual structures.
