[DMANET] Call for participation: Graph Drawing Contest

Call for participation: Graph Drawing Contest

The 30th Annual Graph Drawing Contest shall be held in conjunction
with the 31st International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network
Visualization (GD 2023). The contest has two parts: the Creative Topic
and the Live Challenge. They are briefly described below -- details on
both contests can be found on the contest webpage:


Creative Topic

The creative topic is provided a year in advance and focusses on free-form
visualisation of a specific graph. Participants are invited to submit a
creative drawing of this graph that evokes exploration and understanding
the graph. The submissions will be judged by the contest committee. This
year's topic is Boardgame Recommendations.

Live Challenge

The live challenge will be held during the conference (exact date and time
to be announced) in a format similar to a typical programming contest,
where teams are presented with a collection of challenge graphs and
have approximately one hour to submit their highest scoring drawings
(either created manually, or automatically). This year the challenge
will focus on minimizing crossings, when drawing a graph by assigning
its vertices to a given set of locations.


Awards will be given to the top submissions in each of the contests.
