Update to the submission

The submission as of the June 11 deadline must be a complete version to allow PC members to decide reviewing preferences. Updates to the submission are allowed until June 13.

Submission format

All submissions must be formatted using the LaTeX style file for the conference series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) provided by Springer. The default margins and fonts must not be modified; in particular, the use of packages such as times.sty is not allowed. Submissions that do not comply with this format risk rejection without consideration of their merits. The length of regular papers is limited to 12 pages (excluding references), while the length of short papers is limited to 6 pages (excluding references). The claims of the paper should be fully substantiated, including full proofs or appropriate experimental data. If this information does not fit within the page limits, the authors should include it in a clearly marked appendix, whose length is not constrained and which the reviewers may read at their own discretion.

Regular Papers

Regular papers must be submitted explicitly to one of two distinct tracks. Papers submitted to one track will not compete with papers submitted to the other track.

Track 1: Combinatorial and algorithmic aspects

This track is mainly devoted to fundamental graph drawing advances, such as combinatorial aspects and algorithm design. The range of topics for this track includes (but is not limited to):

  • Design and analysis of graph drawing algorithms
  • Geometric graph theory
  • Geometric computing
  • Planarity and topological graph theory
  • Optimization on graphs

Track 2: Experimental, applied, and network visualization aspects

This track is mainly devoted to the practical aspects of graph drawing, such as the development of network visualization systems and interfaces in different application areas. The range of topics for this track includes (but is not limited to):

  • Visualization of graphs and networks in real world applications, including big data
  • Engineering of network visualization algorithms and systems
  • Experimental results in graph theory and algorithms
  • Benchmarks and experimental studies of network visualization systems and user interfaces
  • Cognitive studies on graph drawing readability and user interaction
  • Interfaces and methods for interacting with graphs

Short papers

In addition to the above two tracks, there will be a separate category for short papers, describing theoretical or applied contributions of shorter length. Papers in this category will be assigned a shorter time for presentation during the conference.

Demos

Authors of applied papers will have the opportunity to show a demo of their software/system during the poster session.

Posters

Submissions of posters on graph drawing, network visualization, and related areas are solicited. The poster session will provide a forum for the communication of late-breaking research results (which may also appear elsewhere) to the GD community. Authors of posters should prepare an abstract (up to 2 pages in the LNCS style) that must be submitted together with the poster itself.
