|Conference: Graph Drawing '97 |
Organized by: Third University of Rome.
The Fifth Symposium on Graph Drawing is sponsored by the EC ESPRIT Long Term Research Project.
Field: Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computer Science, Publishing, Artificial Intelligence, Graph theory
Place: Third University of Rome, Rome
Description: Graph drawing addresses the problem of visualizing structural information. More specifically it is concerned with the construction of geometric representations of abstract graphs and networks. The automatic generation of drawings of graphs has important applications in key computer science technologies such as database design, software engineering, VLSI and network design and visual interfaces and also in engineering, chemistry and biology. The range of issues being investigated in graph drawing includes algorithms, graph theory, order theory, visual languages.
A great deal of research in graph drawing is motivated by applications to systems for viewing and interacting with graphs. The interaction between theoretical advances and implemented solutions is an important part of the area of graph drawing.
Additional information: Accepted papers and descriptions of accepted demos will be published in the proceedings of GD'97, which will appear in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science of Springer Verlag. Camera-ready copies of papers are due at the workshop.
A limited number of fellowships are available for students. The deadline to apply for fellowships is July 18, 1997.
