|Conference: GD '98: Sixth Symposium on Graph Drawing |
Organized by: Symposium is organized in conjunction with the computational geometry group, at the School of Computer Science, McGill University.
Field: Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computer Science
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 investigated in graph drawing includes algorithms, graph theory, order theory, visual languages, and perception.
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: It immediately follows the 10th Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry, also at McGill, August 10-12th.
Following the tradition of the Symposium, there will again be a Graph Drawing Contest this year.
