Call for Papers

14th International Symposium on Graph Drawing
September 18-20, 2006, Karlsruhe, Germany

Graph Drawing is concerned with the geometric representation of graphs and
networks and is motivated by those applications where it is crucial to 
structural information as graphs. Bridging the gap between theoretical 
and implemented solutions is an important aspect of the conference. Indeed,
advances in graph drawing are a key factor in such technological areas 
as web
computing, e-commerce, VLSI circuit design, information systems, software
engineering, computational cartography, visual interfaces, bioinformatics,
network analysis and networking. Researchers and practitioners working 
on theoretical and practical aspects of
graph drawing are welcome to participate. Human performance studies 
based on
perceptual and cognitive evaluations of graph drawings are encouraged.

The range of topics that are within the scope of the International 
Symposium on
Graph Drawing includes (but is not limited to): * Visualization of 
networks, Web maps, software engineering diagrams, database
schemas, chemical structures and molecules
* Graph algorithms
* Geometric graph theory and geometric computing
* Software systems for graph visualization
* Topology and planarity
* Graph theory and optimization on graphs
* Interfaces for interacting with graphs
* Empirical assessment of graph drawing systems
* Task analysis to guide graph drawing

INVITED SPEAKERS Oliver Deussen (Universität Konstanz)
Emo Welzl (ETH Zürich)

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original research and 
surveys of
theoretical or practical significance to graph drawing. Demonstrations of
systems incorporating original and innovative research ideas are also 
A system demonstration should include illustrative screen dumps and a
description of the system's functionalities. Regular papers and demos 
must be
labeled as either long or short; long papers will be assigned 12 pages 
in the
conference proceedings, and short papers 6 pages.
Submissions of posters in graph drawing and related areas are also 
The purpose is to provide a forum for the communication of results 
(which may
appear elsewhere) to the graph drawing community. A poster will be given 
2 pages
in the conference proceedings.  Submission of substantially similar 
papers or
demos to GD 2006 and to other conferences with published proceedings is not

Each submission must include an indication of its type (paper, demo 
or poster) and contact information for the primary author. For a paper or a
demo, an indication about whether it is a regular or a short submission 
also be given. Only electronic submissions are allowed. Detailed submission
instructions will be provided on the conference web site.
The full extended abstract should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages in
LNCS-style. If the authors believe that more details are essential to
substantiate the main claims of the paper, they may include a clearly  
appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.
Submissions deviating from these guidelines or from the submission deadline
below risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Following the tradition of previous conferences, a graph drawing contest 
will be
held. A 1,000 Euros prize will be awarded to the winner. Details on the 
will be provided on the conference web site.

* Submissions of papers, demos, and posters: June 4, 2006
* Notification of acceptance: July 20, 2006
* Graph Drawing Contest Submissions: September 15, 2006

Accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings, 
which will
be included in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Computer 
Final versions of accepted submissions are due at the conference.
