Graphs are used almost everywhere when representing or modelling
structures and systems, not only in applied and theoretical computer
science, but also in, e.g., natural and engineering sciences. Graph
transformation and graph grammars are the fundamental modelling
paradigms for describing, formalizing, and analyzing graphs that
change over time when modelling, e.g., dynamic data structures,
systems, or models. The International Conference on Graph
Transformation (ICGT) series aims to bring together researchers from
different areas in this context and to provide a forum for presenting
new results, discussing novel ideas and sharing experience. In order
to foster a lively exchange of perspectives on the subject of the
conference, the programme committee of the ninth edition of ICGT
encourages all kinds of contributions related to graph
transformation. Topics of interest include, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO the
following subjects:

- General models of graph transformation (e.g., high-level, adhesive,
node, edge, and hyperedge replacement systems)
- Analysis and verification of graph transformation systems
- Graph theoretical properties of graph languages
- Automata on graphs and parsing of graph languages
- Logical aspects of graph transformation
- Computational models based on graph transformation
- Structuring and modularization concepts for graph transformation systems
- Hierarchical graphs and decompositions of graphs
- Parallel, concurrent, and distributed graph transformation
- Modelling and analysis of dynamic data structures
- Term graph rewriting
- Graph transformation and Petri nets
- Ontologies and ontology evolution
- Graph databases
- Modelling and realizing software architectures, refactoring, evolution,
workflows, business processes, access control, security policies,
service-oriented applications, semantic web, ...
- Natural language processing, natural computing, bioinformatics,
quantum computing, ubiquitous computing, visual computing,
image generation, natural and engineering sciences, ...
- Model-driven development and model transformation based on
graph transformation
- Model checking, program verification, simulation and animation
- Syntax, semantics and implementation of programming languages,
domain-specific languages, and visual languages
- Graph transformation languages and tool support
- Efficient algorithms (pattern matching, graph traversal etc.)

The 9th International Conference on Graph Transformation (ICGT 2016)
will be held in Vienna, Austria, as a STAF event
( The conference takes place under
the auspices of EATCS (, EASST
(, and IFIP ( WG 1.3.

Paper Submission

Papers are solicited in three categories:

* Research papers (limited to 16 pages in Springer LNCS format)
describe innovative contributions and are evaluated with respect to
their originality, significance, and technical soundness. Additional
material intended for reviewers but not for publication in the final
version may be included in a clearly marked appendix.

* Case studies (limited to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format)
describe applications of graph transformations in any application

* Tool presentation papers (limited to 12 pages in Springer LNCS
format) demonstrate the main features and functionality of
graph-based tools. A tool presentation paper may have an appendix
with a detailed demo description (up to 5 pages), which will be
reviewed but not included in the proceedings.

Papers can be submitted at
Submitted papers must use Springer's LNCS format (
Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of
material that has already been published elsewhere is not allowed. The page
limits are strict and include references.

Proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science ( series.
