27th International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization


The 27th International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization will be organized by Charles University - Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in cooperation with Mathematical Institute AS CR from September 17 to 20, 2019 in Prague, Czechia. 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.

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 data science, social sciences, Web computing, information systems, biology, geography, business intelligence, information security and software engineering.

GD has been the main annual event in this area for more than 25 years. Its focus is on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects of graph drawing as well as the design of network visualization systems and interfaces.

In 2019, the conference will be back in the Prague region after 20 years, honouring scientific achievements of Jan Kratochvíl.
