                       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.
