\paragraph{Location:} \v Sti\v r\'{\i}n castle in the vicinity of Prague,
Czech Republic. A high baroque castle recently restored and refurbished into
a first class hotel and conference center.
\bigskip\smallskip
\paragraph{Scope:}
The symposium is a forum for researchers,
practitioners, developers and users working on all aspects of graph visualization and representations.
The range of issues considered in graph drawing
includes algorithms, graph theory, geometry, topology, order theory, graphic
languages, perception, applications and practical systems.
Much 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 graph drawing
field. Results on perception and visualization issues related to diagrams
are relevant.
\bigskip\smallskip
\paragraph{Call for Papers and Demos:}
Papers describing original research and surveys as well as demos of new graph drawing tools and techniques are being
sought. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
\begin{itemize}
\item Algorithms, models and techniques for drawing graphs, concepts for visualizations of structural information, perception issues related to diagram understanding.
\item Geometric and topological graph theory, planarity issues, intersection
and visibility representations of graphs.
\item Tools and systems for graph drawing, user interfaces for viewing graphs, interactive exploration of large graphs, presentation of dynamic graphs and
animation of graphs,
applications of graph drawing to areas such as software visualization,
user interface design and database query formulation.
\end{itemize}
\smallskip
\paragraph{Graph Drawing Contest:}
Following the tradition of previous conferences, a
graph drawing contest will be held. See the GD '99 web site for details.
\smallskip
\paragraph{Submissions:}
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract or full draft paper
of 5 to 10 pages, including fax number and e-mail address, to arrive
at the latest by May 26, 1999. Mail 16 hard copies to the conference
address or
alternatively (and preferably), send a standard postscript version
of the manuscript by e-mail to {\tt gd99subm@kam.ms.mff.cuni.cz}.
Received submissions will be confirmed by e-mail.
\smallskip
\paragraph{Proceedings:}
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings,
which will appear in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science of
Springer-Verlag. The camera-ready copy as well as
electronic files of accepted papers are
due at the conference.
All participants will receive a copy of the proceedings as part of
their registration.
