[DMANET] BLOCK COURSE: Methods in Graph Drawing (2nd announcement)


BLOCK COURSE: Methods in Graph Drawing

March 22 - April 8, 2011
Technische Universitaet Berlin
Berlin, Germany


Drawings of graphs are used to visualize complex data.
This has applications in many branches of science
and technology. Although each application has specific
requirements and objectives a common theoretical basis
for graph drawings has emerged. The main aim of this
course is the study of some key structures and methods.


1. Graph Drawing and Network Information Visualization (Ulrik Brandes)
March 22-24, 2011.

2. Drawing Planar Graphs (Eric Fusy)
March 28-30, 2011.

3. Drawing Dags and Posets (Stefan Felsner)
April 1-3, 2011.

4. Crossing Numbers and Crossing Minimization (Petr Hlineny)
April 6-8, 2011.

Lectures: 9:00-10:30 and 11:00-12:30
Exercises: 16:00-18:00


The course is addressed to students, graduate students and postdocs of
Mathematics or Computer Science, who are interested in graph drawing
and the combinatorics behind it.

Participation in the course is free of charge. There is a limited
amount of financial support available for PhD-students or for advanced
Master/Diploma students in a field related to the topics of the
course. Applications for financial support, with curriculum vitae,
copies of certificates, thesis, areas of interest, and a letter of
recommendation (sent directly by the letter writer) should be sent by
Feb. 20, 2011, preferably by e-mail, to
