23rd International Symposium on
Graph Drawing & Network Visualization
September 24-26, 2015, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Call for Papers

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 social sciences, Internet and Web computing, information systems, computational biology, networking, VLSI circuit design, and software engineering.

The International Symposium on Graph Drawing has been the main annual event in this area for more than twenty years. This year the Steering Committee of GD decided to extend the name of the conference from the "International Symposium on Graph Drawing" to the "International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization" in order to better emphasize the dual focus of the conference on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects as well as the design of network visualization systems and interfaces.

The conference will be hosted by the California State University at Northridge, in Los Angeles, CA, from September 24 to 26, 2015. 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.
