About the conference

Theme of conference

Tracing the mind: How do we learn from text and graphics?

Mission statement of SIG2

SIG2 2 focuses on how learning is influenced by the representation of the learning material. Historically, we focused on text and picture comprehension. However, as there is an explosion of new representations by the introduction of graphical interfaces, the SIG now also considers other forms of representation. These include, but are not limited to, text, pictures, graphs, diagrams, concept maps, animations, equations, virtual reality, information and scientific visualization, haptics, multimedia, hypermedia, and simulations.
