Abstract

This position paper presents the preliminary findings of a systematic literature review of applications of the Physics of Notations: a recently dominant framework for assessing the cognitive effectiveness of visual notations. We present our research structure in detail and discuss some initial findings, such as the kinds of notations the PoN has been applied to, whether its usage is justified and to what degree users are involved in eliciting requirements for the notation before its application. We conclude by summarizing and briefly discussing further analysis to be done and valorization of such results as guidelines for better application.
