Picturing Argument from & about Evidence in the 21st Century: A Conference

Well, if pictures of reasoning -- including reasoning from and about evidence -- are so persistent and powerful, why then there ought to be a conference -- about the visualization of evidence and inference. And such a conference will in fact take place -- in New York City (Manhattan) at Cardozo Law School in late January 2007. The conference will be called Graphic and Visual Representations of Evidence and Inference in Legal Settings. Henry Prakken is the chair of the program committee and Tom Cobb is the deputy chair of the program committee. The panelists for this two-day event include:
