GD 2016

24th International Symposium on
Graph Drawing and Network Visualization

September 19-21, 2016 – Athens, Greece


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.


We invite authors to submit papers describing original research of theoretical
or practical significance to graph drawing and network visualization. Regular
papers must be submitted explicitly to one of two distinct tracks. Papers
submitted to one track will not compete with papers submitted to the other

Track 1: Combinatorial and algorithmic aspects

This track is mainly devoted to fundamental graph drawing advances, such as
combinatorial aspects and algorithm design. The range of topics for this track
includes (but is not limited to):

• Design and analysis of graph drawing algorithms
• Geometric graph theory
• Geometric computing
• Planarity and topological graph theory
• Optimization on graphs

Track 2: Experimental, applied, and network visualization aspects

This track is mainly devoted to the practical aspects of graph drawing, such as
the development of network visualization systems and interfaces in different
application areas. The range of topics for this track includes (but is not
limited to):

• Visualization of graphs and networks in real world applications, including big data
• Engineering of network visualization algorithms and systems
• Experimental results in graph theory and algorithms
• Benchmarks and experimental studies of network visualization systems and user interfaces
• Cognitive studies on graph drawing readability and user interaction
• Interfaces and methods for interacting with graphs

Short papers

Besides regular papers in the two tracks above there will be a separate
category for short papers. In this category it will be possible to submit
theoretical contributions and applied papers of shorter length. Papers in this
category will be assigned a shorter time for presentation during the conference.


Authors of applied regular and short papers will have the opportunity to show a
demo of their software/system during the poster session.

Submission format

All submissions must be formatted using the LaTeX style file for the conference
series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) provided by Springer. The
default margins and fonts must not be modified. Submissions that do not comply
with this format risk being rejected. The length of regular papers is limited
to 12 pages (excluding references), while the length of short papers is limited
to 6 pages (excluding references). The claims of the paper should be fully
substantiated, including full proofs or appropriate experimental data. If this
information does not fit within the page limits, the authors should include it
in a clearly marked appendix, whose length is not constrained and which the
reviewers may read at their own discretion.


Submissions of posters on graph drawing, network visualization, and related
areas are also solicited. The poster session will provide a forum for the
communication of late-breaking research results (which may also appear
elsewhere) to the graph drawing community. Authors of posters should prepare an
abstract (up to two pages in the LNCS style) that must be submitted together
with the poster itself.


Details about the traditional Graph Drawing Contest held at the conference will
be provided on the conference Web site.


All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, published by
Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and, following
a green open access policy, as a conference index on the arXiv repository. The
LNCS proceedings will be made freely accessible to the GD community upon
publication and openly accessible to anyone after four years. The self-archived
arXiv proceedings will provide immediate and unrestricted open access. Twelve
pages (excluding references) will be allocated for regular papers and six pages
(excluding references) for short papers. Upon submission of the camera-ready
version of accepted papers, the identical paper (optionally including a clearly
marked appendix) must be submitted to the arXiv repository and its arXiv
identifier must be specified for inclusion in the conference index. Abstracts
of accepted posters will also appear in the conference proceedings (two pages),
but will not be made available for indexing. Selected papers will be invited
for submission to a special issue of the Journal of Graph Algorithms and


For each of the two tracks, the Program Committee of GD 2016 will give a Best
Paper Award. In addition, to recognize the effort of participants to present
their work and to prepare their posters in a clear and elegant way, there will
be a Best Presentation Award and a Best Poster Award voted on by the GD 2016
