The two newly elected members of the GD Steering Committee are

        Therese Biedl and Martin Nöllenburg

Congratulations!  Both have accepted their new duty.
Therese currently is a member of the SC (2017-19) as PC chair
of GD 2018.  Martin was an elected member of the SC (2015-17).

Attached are the results of phase II of the election.
All candidates gave us their consent to publishing the results.
Please note that Ballotbin rounded down all percentages,
which is why they don't sum up to 100%.
127 people participated in phase II, that is, roughly 1/3
of the 393 voting invitations that we sent out got a reaction.

We are also attaching the statistical data that we collected in
phase I.  In hindsight, it would have been brighter to collect
this data in phase II where we got nearly twice as many participants.
Out of the 68 participants of phase I, between 43 and 56
answered our survey questions.  We removed the names of the
countries that appeared only once.  Apparently, the typical
survey participants were German professors who have taken part
in more than five GD conferences ;-)

Overall, we are quite happy with the electronic voting system.
For us, it was a good experience.  We recommend using it for
future elections.

Dear Member of the Mailing List GD-Election,

the following members of the community got the most votes.
(The list is in alphabetical order of family names.)

Therese Biedl (U Waterloo) https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/~biedl/
Walter Didimo (U Perugia) http://mozart.diei.unipg.it/~didimo/
Michael Goodrich (UC Irvine) http://www.ics.uci.edu/~goodrich/
Michael Kaufmann (U Tübingen) 
Stephen Kobourov (U Arizona) https://www2.cs.arizona.edu/~kobourov/
Jan Kratochvíl (Charles U Prague) http://kam.mff.cuni.cz/~honza/

Antonios Symvonis (NTU Athens) http://www.math.ntua.gr/~symvonis/

All of them declared to be willing to stand for election.

 From the 492 email addresses that were in the mailing list GD-election
on January 8, 34 didn't exist anymore, and some people reported that
they received invitations for voting to several email addresses.
As far as we could see, nobody voted twice.
In total, 68 people voted in phase I.

We have removed the non-existing email addresses and obvious double
occurrences from the mailing list GD-election. So this voting invitation
goes only to the remaining 393 email addresses.

So now it's time to vote! Make up your mind and follow the link to the
voting platform. You can vote for up to 2 of the 10 candidates.

The vote closes on February 14, at 23:59 MET. We'll inform you about the
