[DMANET] Call for Posters: Graph Drawing and Network Visualization GD 2017


Call for Posters

GD 2017

25th International Symposium on
Graph Drawing and Network Visualization

September 25-27, 2017 - Boston, MA, U.S.A.


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 data science, social
sciences, Web computing, information systems, biology, geography,
business intelligence, information security and software engineering.

GD has been the main annual event in this area for more than 20 years.
Its focus is on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects of graph drawing
as well as the design of network visualization systems and interfaces.
GD 2017 will take place September 25-27, 2017 at the Northeastern
University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Researchers and practitioners
working on any aspects of graph drawing and network visualization are
invited to submit posters and to participate in the symposium.


The submission of posters on graph drawing, network visualization, and
related areas is 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 two pages in unmodified LNCS style -- no times
package is allowed) that must be submitted together with the poster.
Abstracts of accepted posters will appear in the conference proceedings
(two pages). The maximum size for a poster is A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm).
The posters must be in portrait mode.

Each submission will then consist of two pdf files (the two-page
abstract and the poster) and must include names, email addresses and
contact information of the contributors. Contributions must be submitted
via EasyChair following the link provided on the conference web site.


To recognize the effort of the 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 2017 attendees.
