Sorry if you have received multiple copies of this email
================================================================

Call for Papers

GD 2022

30th International Symposium on
Graph Drawing and Network Visualization

September 13-16, 2022 - Tokyo, Japan
https://graphdrawing.github.io/gd2022/

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

This is a gentle reminder that the deadline for submitting your papers to GD 2022 is approaching:
Abstract submission deadline: June, 1st
Paper submission deadline: June, 8th.

Given the current status of the restrictions in Japan, the conference will be held in online hybrid mode. All authors will be given the possibility to present their work from remote. The organization committee is also preparing for an on-site component, but this possibility cannot be confirmed at the current stage. Please find more information at:

https://graphdrawing.github.io/gd2022/pages/news/

Please recall that, for the first time in the GD conference, this year the review process will be handled in a "lightweight double-blind mode": authors are not allowed to reveal their identity in the submitted paper, but are free to disseminate draft versions of the paper prior to the conference and to give talks on the topic as they normally would.

More details can be found in the full call for papers, which can be accessed at the following links and is reported below for your convenience:

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

CALL FOR PAPERS
------

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 about 30 years. Its focus is on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects of graph drawing, as well as the design of network visualization systems and interfaces. Researchers and practitioners working on any aspects of graph drawing and network visualization are invited to contribute papers and posters and to participate in the symposium and the graph drawing contest.

GD 2022 will be held at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, on September 13-16, 2022, with a reception on the evening of September 13. A pre-conference PhD school is planned for September 12-13, 2022.
While we hope that a physical conference will be possible, details of the exact format of the venue (onsite, online, hybrid) will be announced before the submission deadline. Regardless of the format, we are committed to offering remote participation for both presenters and the audience.

The code of conduct for the GD conference can be found at
http://graphdrawing.org/codeOfConduct.html

PAPERS
------

We invite authors to submit papers describing original research of theoretical or practical significance to graph drawing and network visualization.
To promote a balanced coverage of the field, GD has two distinct tracks, and papers submitted to one track will not compete with papers submitted to the other track. Regular papers must be submitted explicitly to one of the two tracks. However, all program committee members may review papers from either 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 and topological graph theory
* Computational topology of graphs on surfaces
* Geometric network design and optimization
* Geometric computing

Track 2: Experimental, applied, and network visualization aspects
--------------------------------------------------------------

This track is mainly devoted to the practical aspects of graph drawing, such as the development and evaluation of network visualization algorithms, systems, and interfaces in different application areas. The range of topics for this track includes (but is not limited to):
* Visualization of networks in real world applications
* Engineering of graph drawing algorithms and network visualization systems
* Benchmarks and experimental studies of algorithms, systems, and user interfaces for graph drawing and network visualization
* Cognitive studies on network visualization readability and user interaction
* Interfaces and methods for interacting with graphs and networks

Authors of accepted applied papers can request the opportunity to show a demo of their software/system during the poster session.

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.

Submission format
-----------------

All submissions must be formatted using the appropriate LaTeX style file, either gd-llncs.cls<https://graphdrawing.github.io/gd2022/assets/template/gd-llncs.cls> for long papers or gd-llncs-short.cls<https://graphdrawing.github.io/gd2022/assets/template/gd-llncs-short.cls> for short papers; these are derived from the style file used 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.

To promote inclusion of figures in the submitted papers, submissions will have a strict number of lines limit. Regular papers must have at most 400 lines and at most 14 pages (excluding references). Short papers must have at most 225 lines and at most 7 pages (excluding references).
When counting the lines, the following sections should be excluded: title, authors block, keywords, references. For figures, tables, and algorithm pseudo-code, only the lines of the main caption should be counted. Lines in all the rest of the paper should be counted, including the abstract.
The claims of the paper should be fully substantiated. If this information does not fit within the line/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.

All submissions will be handled through EasyChair at the web site https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=gd2022

Posters & Contest
-----------------

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.

Details about the traditional Graph Drawing Contest held at the conference are provided on the conference web site https://graphdrawing.github.io/gd2022/pages/contest/

LIGHTWEIGHT DOUBLE-BLIND REVIEW PROCESS
--------------------------------

This year, for the first time in the GD conference, the review process will be handled in a "lightweight double-blind mode". This means that authors are not allowed to reveal their identity in the paper that they submit to GD'22, but are free to disseminate draft versions of the paper prior to the conference and to give talks on the topic as they normally would. In particular, the submitted paper should not contain authors' names, affiliations, and email addresses. References to their own related work are allowed, as long as the supporting text maintains anonymity (e.g., using sentences in the third person, anonymising references).

Members of the Program Committee will not have the identity of the authors of any paper revealed to them during the entire review process. To handle conflicts of interest effectively, authors will be offered the opportunity to declare conflict of interest with relevant PC members when they submit their paper.


PUBLICATION: PROCEEDINGS AND SPECIAL ISSUES
-----------------------

All accepted papers (including the two-page poster abstracts) will appear in the conference proceedings, published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The LNCS proceedings will be made freely accessible to the GD community upon publication and openly accessible to anyone after four years.

Authors will be required to submit their accepted papers to the arXiv repository at the same time as submitting their camera-ready versions, in order to provide immediate and unrestricted open access to them. The self-archived arXiv papers shall consist of the LNCS proceedings version (identical, except for possibly changed references to the appendix resp. the arXiv version) plus an optional clearly marked appendix. This appendix could contain a long version of the entire paper or proofs that have been omitted from the main text. Subsequent submissions of revised versions of the paper to the arXiv (known as arXiv "replacements") are allowed. Upon submission of the camera-ready version of an accepted paper, the authors will be required to specify the arXiv identifier associated with the paper for inclusion in a conference index, which will be also published in the arXiv repository. Failure to comply with these guidelines will impede the publication of the paper.

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

Selected papers from both tracks will be invited for submission to a special issue of the Journal of Graph Algorithms and Applications (JGAA). The authors of two selected papers in Track 2 will be invited to submit a substantially extended and enhanced version of their work to IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG). Invitations to the special issues will be sent at most two weeks after the conference.

A TVCG papers session at the Graph Drawing conference will also feature regular TVCG papers. Please find more details at
https://www.computer.org/digital-library/journals/tvcg/tvcg-partners-with-conferences


AWARDS
------

For each of the two tracks, the Program Committee of GD 2022 will bestow a Best Paper Award. In addition, to recognize the effort of participants to present their work and to prepare their posters in a clear and elegant way, there will be a Best Presentation Award and a Best Poster Award voted on by the GD 2022 attendees.

LOCATION

**********************************************

SPIRE 2022 will be held in the Faculty of Engineering of the Universidad de Concepción, in the city of Concepción, located next to the BioBio river and the Pacific ocean. Concepción is the second largest city in Chile and can be reached via direct flight from Santiago (about 45 minutes). Universidad de Concepción is the largest educational institution in the city, being also one of the most traditional and prestigious universities in Chile. Its beautiful campus is a touristic attraction by itself, with its famous campanil overlooking both the University and the city. The University hosts more than 20 thousand students in its three campuses, and it has become a symbol of pride for the city. Concepción is a vibrant city with many universities, shopping centers, and surrounded by beautiful nature and picturesque locations such as the Dichato beach (for swimming and seafood eating), Caleta Tumbes (with numerous seafood restaurants), Chiflón del Diablo (a former underground coal mine). Many touristic areas are also relatively close to Concepción, such as Termas de Chillán (a hot spring facility close to the Andes), Pucón (a city surrounded by several National Parks, lakes like Villarrica and Caburgua, hot springs, and the magnificent Villarrica Volcano), and Valdivia (a historical city, close to the sea and surrounded by rivers and a breathtaking natural scenery). Other touristic places in Chile (like San Pedro de Atacama, in northern Chile) can be reached via direct flight from Concepción. The conference will have a hybrid format (onsite + online), yet it can change to a full online format depending on the pandemic situation in November.

Tutorial on Graph Databases
**********************************************

Speakers:
Aidan Hogan (University of Chile and Institute for Foundational Research on Data)
Domagoj Vrgoč (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and Institute for Foundational Research on Data)

Date: TBA.

Abstract:
This tutorial will provide an introduction to graph databases, which have been gaining more and more attention in recent years, particularly for querying large-scale knowledge graphs. An interesting recent development in this area has been the application of text indexing and compression techniques to optimize graph queries at large scale. The tutorial will be divided into three parts. The first part will introduce and motivate graph databases in the broader context of data management, discussing their advantages (and disadvantages) compared with relational databases, their data models, their key applications, providing also a short demo of graph database engines in use. The second part of the tutorial will focus on querying graph databases, introducing the key primitives used for querying graphs, along with some popular graph query languages, before concluding with some high-level challenges for evaluating graph queries in an efficient manner. Towards addressing these challenges, the final part of the tutorial will introduce indexes and algorithms that enable the efficient evaluation of queries over graph databases, starting with more traditional techniques inspired by relational databases, progressing towards more modern algorithms and indexes; in this part, we will see some surprising applications of text compression and indexing techniques for querying graph databases efficiently (in terms of both time and space). See the website for more details (http://spire2022.inf.udec.cl/#section-tutorial).

[DMANET] The 13th Annual Uri N. Peled Memorial Lecture - Monday May 30, 2022 by Martin Milanič - Shifting paths to avoidable ones

You are cordially invited to attend on zoom

The 13th Annual Uri N. Peled Memorial Lecture

Date: Monday May 30, 2022 (zoom link below)
Time: 13:30 UK; 14:30 France; 15:30 Israel; 18:00 India;
9:30 Rio and Buenos Aires ; 8:30 New York; 7:30 Chicago

Speaker: Martin Milanič (University of Primorska, Koper, Slovenia)
Title: "Shifting paths to avoidable ones"

Abstract:

An *extension* of an induced path P in a graph G is an induced path P'
such that deleting the endpoints of P' results in P. An induced path in a
graph is said to be *avoidable* if each of its extensions is contained in
an induced cycle. In 2019, Beisegel, Chudnovsky, Gurvich, Milanič, and
Servatius conjectured that every graph that contains an induced k‐vertex
path also contains an avoidable induced path of the same length, and
proved the result for k = 2. The case k = 1 was known much earlier, due to
a work of Ohtsuki, Cheung, and Fujisawa in 1976. The conjecture was proved
for all k in 2020 by Bonamy, Defrain, Hatzel, and Thiebaut.

Using a similar approach, we strengthen their result from a
reconfiguration point of view. Namely, we show that in every graph, each
induced path can be transformed to an avoidable one by a sequence of
shifts, where two induced k-vertex paths are *shifts* of each other if
their union is an induced path with k + 1 vertices. We also obtain
analogous results for not necessarily induced paths and for walks. In
contrast, the statement cannot be extended to trails or to isometric paths.

This is joint work with Vladimir Gurvich, Matjaž Krnc, and Mikhail Vyalyi.

Note:
Uri Natan Peled ז"ל was a mathematician, friend, open-minded,
thoughtful, and generous person, author of many research papers,
journal guest editor, survey and book writer. He was a perfectionist
with the patience to wait for the right solution to an open problem before
committing to a final written version. Together with colleagues, his work
introduced many topics related to threshold graphs, as well as
mathematical works on Boolean functions, polyhedral combinatorics, and
information theory. He contributed much to the academic atmosphere at his
home institution, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and was a
frequent visitor to the Caesarea Rothschild Institute at the University of
Haifa. Prof. Peled died on September 5, 2009 at the age of 65. By this
annual lecture series, we honor his memory and his research work.

[DMANET] [Deadline Extension] LAMAS & SR 2022 - Final Call for Contributions

[Apologies for multiple cross-posting]

[Deadline Extended to *June 5th (AoE)*]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Call for Contributions

2nd International Workshop on
Logical Aspects in Multi-Agent Systems and Strategic Reasoning (LAMAS&SR)
2022
25-26 August 2022, Rennes, France
URL: https://lamassr.github.io/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Objectives
----------

Logics and strategic reasoning play a central role in multi-agent systems.
Logics can be used, for instance, to express the agents' abilities,
knowledge,
and objectives. Strategic reasoning refers to algorithmic methods that
allow for
developing good behaviour for the agents of the system. At the
intersection, we
find logics that can express existence of strategies or equilibria, and can
be
used to reason about them.

The LAMAS&SR workshop merges two international workshops: LAMAS (Logical
Aspects
of Multi-Agent Systems), which focuses on all kinds of logical aspects of
multi-agent systems from the perspectives of artificial intelligence,
computer
science, and game theory, and SR (Strategic Reasoning), devoted to all
aspects
of strategic reasoning in formal methods and artificial intelligence.

List of Topics
--------------

The topics covered by the workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Logical systems for specification, analysis, and reasoning about
multi-agent systems
* Logic-based modelling of multi-agent systems
* Dynamical multi-agent systems
* Deductive systems and decision procedures for logics for multi-agent
systems
* Development and implementation of methods for verification in multi-agent
systems
* Logic-based tools for multi-agent systems
* Logics for reasoning about strategic abilities
* Logics for multi-agent mechanism design, verification, and synthesis
* Logical foundations of decision theory for multi-agent systems
* Strategic reasoning in formal verification
* Automata theory for strategy synthesis
* Applications and tools for cooperative and adversarial reasoning
* Robust planning and optimisation in multi-agent systems
* Risk and uncertainty in multi-agent systems
* Quantitative aspects in strategic reasoning

Invited Speakers
----------------

* Rineke Verbrugge, University of Groningen

Co-Located Event
----------------

LAMAS&SR 2022 will be an event co-located with the 14th International
Conference
on Advances In Modal Logic (AiML 2022, 22-25 August).

About COVID-19
--------------

Local organizers are following closely the evolution of the pandemic
situation.
Our preference is for a full in-person event, but we will employ an online
or
hybrid format according to the situation.

Important Dates
---------------

* Paper submission: (extended to) June 5 (AoE)
* Author notification: June 30 (AoE)
* Camera ready: July 15 (AoE)
* Workshop: August 25-26, 2022

Contribution Submission
-----------------------

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of 2 pages, plus 1 page for
references only, in the AAMAS 2022 format. Both published and unpublished
works
are welcome. Submissions are subject to a single-blind review process, thus,
submissions should not be anonymous, must be in PDF format, and will be
handled
via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lamassr22

Although there will be no formal proceedings, accepted extended abstracts
will
be made available on the workshop website. Extensions of selected original
contributions will be then invited to a special issue of Games, an MDPI
open-access journal, with a special arrangement.

[DMANET] CFP - IET Image Processing special issue on "Advancements in Fine Art Pattern Extraction and Recognition" [deadline 28 November 2022]

apologies for multiple posting, please distribute among interested parties
_________________
*Call for Papers*

_______ *Special Issue of IET Image Processing on* __________
*ADVANCEMENTS in FINE ART PATTERN EXTRACTION and RECOGNITION*

___________
Aim & Scope

Cultural heritage, especially fine arts, plays an invaluable role in the
cultural, historical and economic growth of our societies. Fine arts are
primarily developed for aesthetic purposes and are mainly expressed
through painting, sculpture and architecture. In recent years, thanks to
technological improvements and drastic cost reductions, a large-scale
digitization effort has been made, which has led to an increasing
availability of large digitized fine art collections. This availability,
coupled with recent advances in pattern recognition and computer vision,
has disclosed new opportunities, especially for researchers in these
fields, to assist the art community with automatic tools to further
analyze and understand fine arts. Among other benefits, a deeper
understanding of fine arts has the potential to make them more
accessible to a wider population, both in terms of fruition and
creation, thus supporting the spread of culture.

This special issue aims to offer the opportunity to present advancements
in the state-of-the-art, innovative research, ongoing projects, and
academic and industrial reports on the application of visual pattern
extraction and recognition for a better understanding and fruition of
fine arts, soliciting contributions from pattern recognition, computer
vision, artificial intelligence and image processing research areas. The
special issue will be linked to the 2nd International Workshop on Fine
Art Pattern Extraction and Recognition (FAPER2022). Authors of selected
conference papers will be invited to extend and improve their
contributions for this special issue, and authors are also invited to
submit new contributions (non-conference papers).

_______________________________________
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Applications of machine learning and deep learning to cultural
heritage and digital humanities
- Computer vision and multimedia data processing for fine arts
- Generative adversarial networks for artistic data
- Augmented and virtual reality for cultural heritage
- 3D reconstruction of historical artifacts
- Point cloud segmentation and classification for cultural heritage
- Historical document analysis

[DMANET] Trends in Arithmetic Theories -- call for participation

An ICALP 2022 satellite workshop "Trends in Arithmetic Theories" will take
place on Monday 4 July 2022 in Paris, France (in person):

http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/people/christoph.haase/home/trends-in-arithmetic-theories/

Logical theories of arithmetic such as Presburger arithmetic play an
important role in a variety of different areas of computer science and
have been studied since the early days of the field. The recent years have
seen a lot of progress on all aspects of such theories, ranging from new
foundational results, algorithmic advances, more performant decision
procedures to novel application domains. This progress has largely been
obtained independently without much interaction between researchers
working on different aspects of this field. The goal of this workshop is
to bring together researchers working in the field to exchange latest
trends, understand currently existing challenges and to initiate new
collaborations.

Everyone interested in arithmetic theories is invited to attend.
This will be an in-person workshop, but we hope to livestream talks and
plan to make them available online after the event has taken place.

Speakers:

Émilie Charlier (Université de Liège, Belgium)
Philipp Hieronymi (University of Bonn, Germany)
Roberto Sebastiani (Università di Trento, Italy)
Thomas Sturm (Loria Nancy, France & MPI for Informatics, Germany)
Sven Verdoolaege (Cerebras Systems, Belgium)

Programme and registration:

In addition to invited talks, we plan to include an introductions-type
session in the programme to give all attendees an opportunity to get to
know each other.

Please register for the workshop through the main ICALP registration:

https://icalp2022.irif.fr/?page_id=50

We're also thinking about a workshop dinner, on Sunday evening
before the event.

Workshop organisers:

[DMANET] Final CfP: AMAI Special Issue on Symbolic Computation in Software Science

Call for submissions

Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence
Special Issue on on Symbolic Computation in Software Science --
In the Era of Computational and Artificial Intelligence

https://www.risc.jku.at/people/tkutsia/organization/amai-scss.html
------------------------------------------------------------------

SCOPE
--------
In 2020, Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence (AMAI)
celebrated its 30th anniversary. Over the years, the journal has
promoted better understanding of the application of quantitative,
combinatorial, logical, algebraic and algorithmic methods to artificial
intelligence areas as diverse as decision support, automated deduction,
reasoning, knowledge-based systems, machine learning, computer vision,
robotics and planning. AMAI special issues are intended to be
collections of original research papers reflecting the intersection of
mathematics and a focused discipline demonstrating how each has
contributed greatly to the other. A further goal of the journal is to
close the gaps between the fields even further. Papers should report on
current research in the appropriate areas, as well as more retrospective
papers in which progress has been ongoing over a period of time.

The purpose of this special issue of AMAI is to promote research on
theoretical and practical aspects of symbolic computation in software
science, combined with recent artificial intelligence techniques.
Symbolic Computation is the science of computing with symbolic objects
(terms, formulae, programs, representations of algebraic objects etc.).
Powerful algorithms have been developed during the past decades for the
major subareas of symbolic computation: computer algebra and
computational logic. These algorithms and methods are successfully
applied in various fields, including software science, which covers a
broad range of topics about software construction and analysis.
Meanwhile, artificial intelligence methods and machine learning
algorithms are widely used nowadays in various domains and, in
particular, combined with symbolic computation. Several approaches mix
artificial intelligence and symbolic methods and tools deployed over
large corpora to create what is known as cognitive systems. Cognitive
computing focuses on building systems which interact with humans
naturally by reasoning, aiming at learning at scale.

The special issue is related to the topics of the The 9th International
Symposium on Symbolic Computation in Software Science - SCSS 2021.
Participants of the symposium, as well as other authors are invited to
submit contributions.


TOPICS
-------------------
This special issue focuses on advanced results on the topics that
include, but are not limited to, the following:

- software science-relevant applications of
* automated reasoning, knowledge reasoning, common-sense
reasoning, reasoning in science
* combinations of linguistic/learning-based and semantic/reasoning
methods
* algebras, co-algebras, categories, proof theory, model theory
* artificial intelligence and machine learning methods
- algorithm (program) analysis, synthesis, verification
- extraction of specifications from algorithms (programs)
- algorithm (program) transformation
- formal methods for network and system security
- programming models
- formalization and computerization of knowledge; large-scale computer
understanding of mathematics and science
- alignment and joint processing of formal, semi-formal, and informal
libraries
- formal verification of artificial intelligence and machine learning
algorithms, explainable artificial intelligence, symbolic artificial
intelligence
- cognitive computing, cognitive vision, perception systems and
artificial reasoners for robotics
- computational origami


SUBMISSION

[DMANET] PhD position

My apologies for possible cross-posting

A PhD position will become available from the next intake (Sep 2022) at the
University of Artois, the campus in Bethune.

The PhD thesis will be conducted on the optimization modeling and algorithm
design in mathematical programming addressing problems in logistics. The
focus will be mainly on the logistics operations in presence of cross
docks. Both linear and non-linear models will be part of the challenge.
Moreover, the solution algorithms based on the classical and also some
ml-aware mathematical programming techniques and metaheuristics are going
to be the main focus of the work.

The candidate is expected to have a background in OR/Math/CS/IE and have
obtained an in-depth understanding of mathematical programming. A master
dissertation on the algorithmic aspects of mathematical programming is a
significant plus.

Familiarity with C/C++ and Python is a must. Some knowledge in machine
learning and the willingness in acquiring this is inevitable. Good command
of English is essential and one letter of recommendation from the master
supervisor will be appreciated.

A half a page letter of motivation would be welcome.

A downloadable link (WeTransfer, google drive, etc.) to the application
materials (all aforementioned plus bachelor and masters' transcripts) can
be sent to shahin.gelareh@univ-artois.fr

Please do add in the title "*PhD2022*".

The deadline is June 3, 2022.
