Even though diagrammatic representations were a function of human com- nication from early historical past, contemporary advances in printing and digital media technologyhaveintroducedincreasinglysophisticatedvisualrepresentationsinto everydaylife. we have to enhance our figuring out of the position of diagramsand sketches in communique, cognition, inventive proposal, and problem-solving. those issues have caused a surge of curiosity within the examine of diagrammatic notations, specifically in educational disciplines facing cognition, compu- tion, and verbal exchange. We think that the learn of diagrammatic communique is healthier pursued as an interdisciplinary activity. The Diagrams convention sequence used to be introduced to aid a global learn neighborhood 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 conversation, 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; pondering with Diagrams (TWD), Europe; and thought of visible Languages (TVL), Europe - Diagrams has emerged as an incredible overseas convention in this subject.

It has to be expected that this idea induces an order on the contexts which should be a tree, having the sheet of assertion as greatest element. This order has to be defined now. If is a context and is a vertex, edge, or cut, we say that is directly enclosed by If we have a chain of contexts such that each is directly enclosed by its successor and we have we say that is enclosed by Of course, if is directly enclosed by a context then it is enclosed by as well. In the following, for two contexts we write if is enclosed by and if or The use of the symbol can be justified with the next lemma, which states that is a order on the set of contexts.
