This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Conference, Diagrams 2004, held in Cambridge, UK, in March 2004.

The 18 revised full papers and 42 revised poster papers presented together with a survey article and the abstracts of 2 posters were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 91 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on fundamental issues, logical aspects of diagrammatic representation and reasoning, computational aspects of diagrammatic representation and reasoning, cognitive aspects of diagrammatic representation and reasoning, visualizing information with diagrams, diagrams in human-computer interaction, and diagrams in software engineering.
