VL/HCC 2013
IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing

September 15-19, 2013
San Jose, CA, USA


Live programming consists of writing and editing code that is running at
the same time. Liveness in programming has applications in performance
arts, computing education, and software engineering. Liveness is getting
increasing attention today as a result of increases in computer power,
new ideas related to computational thinking, and the thoughtful efforts
of some create people. This event brings to the VL/HCC audience
perspectives on live programming from each of the aforementioned
application areas.

In the first session, two distinct forms of live programming are
addressed: live coding in musical performance art, and educational
computing environments. In the second session, the relationship between
liveness and productivity in software engineering is explored. The
audience can expect to learn not only about what these various aspects
of live programming are but find out about current trends and what
liveness will bring to the future of programming.

From the beginning of the computer age, people have sought easier ways
to learn, express, and understand computational ideas. Whether this
meant moving from punch cards to textual languages, or command lines
to graphical UIs, the quest to make computation easier to express,
manipulate, and understand by a broader group of people is an ongoing
challenge. The IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric
Computing (VL/HCC) is the premier international forum for research on
this topic. Established in 1984, the mission of the conference is to
support the design, theory, application and evaluation of computing
technologies and languages for programming, modeling and
communicating, which are easier to learn, use, and understand by
