24th International Symposium on
Graph Drawing & Network Visualization
19-21 September 2016, Athens, Greece

24th Int. Symp. on Graph Drawing & Network Visualization

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 2016 will be hosted by the Institute of Communications and Computer Systems, an affiliate of the National Technical University of Athens from September 19 to 21, 2016 in Athens, Greece. 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.
