[DMANET] Call for Posters - Graph Drawing and Network visualization GD 2018


Call for Posters

GD 2018

26th International Symposium on
Graph Drawing and Network Visualization

September 26-28, 2018 - Barcelona, Spain


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, or 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 2018 will take place September 26-28, 2018 at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. Researchers and practitioners working on any aspects of graph drawing and network visualization are invited to contribute posters and to participate in the symposium and the graph drawing contest.


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 at the web site

Each poster must be presented at the conference by an author (barring unforeseen circumstances), otherwise the abstract will not be included in the proceedings. Should any visa restriction prevent an author from attending the conference and presenting a poster, he/she will be given ways to participate via electronic means.


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 2018 attendees.
