[DMANET] Graph Drawing and Network Visualization, GD 2015 - Call for Posters

===========================================================================

Call for Posters

GD 2015

23rd International Symposium on
Graph Drawing and Network Visualization

September 24-26, 2015 - Los Angeles, CA, USA
http://www.csun.edu/gd2015/

===========================================================================

Graph Drawing is concerned with the geometric representation of graphs and
constitutes the algorithmic core of Network Visualization. Graph Drawing
and
Network Visualization are motivated by applications where it is crucial to
visually analyze and interact with relational datasets. Examples of such
application areas include social sciences, Internet and Web computing,
information systems, computational biology, networking, VLSI circuit
design,
and software engineering.

The International Symposium on Graph Drawing has been the main annual event
in this area for more than twenty years. This year the Steering
Committee of
GD decided to extend the name of the conference from the "International
Symposium on Graph Drawing" to the "International Symposium on Graph
Drawing
and Network Visualization" in order to better emphasize the dual focus of
the conference on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects as well as the
design
of network visualization systems and interfaces.

The conference will be hosted by the California State University at
Northridge,
in Los Angeles, CA, from September 24 to 26, 2015. Researchers and
practitioners
working on any aspect of graph drawing and network visualization are
invited to
contribute papers and posters and to participate in the symposium and
the graph
drawing contest.

POSTERS
-------

We invite authors to submit posters on graph drawing, network
visualization,
and related areas. The poster session will provide a forum for the
communication
of late-breaking research results (which may also appear elsewhere) to
the graph
drawing community. Authors of posters should prepare an abstract (up to
two pages
in the LNCS style) that must be submitted together with the poster.
Abstracts of
accepted posters will appear in the conference proceedings (two pages),
but will
not be made available for indexing. The maximum size for a poster is A0
(84.1 cm x 118.9 cm). The posters must be in portrait mode.

POSTER SUBMISSION
-----------------

Each submission consists of two pdf files (the two-page abstract and the
poster)
and must include names, email addresses and contact information of the
contributors.
Contributions should be submitted via the conference web site.

BEST POSTER AWARD
-----------------

To recognize the effort of participants in preparing and presenting
their posters
in a clear and elegant way, there will be a Best Poster Award voted on
by the
GD 2015 attendees.
