Call for Posters

Researchers and practitioners working on any aspects of graph drawing and network visualization are invited to contribute posters and to participate in the symposium and the graph drawing contest.


The submission of posters on graph drawing, network visualization, and related areas is solicited. The poster session will provide a forum for the communication of late-breaking research results (which may also appear elsewhere) to the GD community. Authors of posters should prepare an abstract (up to two pages in unmodified LNCS style—no times package is allowed) that must be submitted together with the poster. Abstracts of accepted posters will appear in the conference proceedings (two pages). The maximum size for a poster is A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm). The posters must be in portrait mode.

Each submission will then consist of two pdf files (the two-page abstract and the poster) and must include names, email addresses and contact information of the contributors. Contributions must be submitted via EasyChair at the web site

Each poster must be presented at the conference by an author (barring unforeseen circumstances), otherwise the abstract will not be included in the proceedings. Should any visa restriction prevent an author from attending the conference and presenting a poster, he/she will be given ways to participate via electronic means.


To recognize the effort of the participants in preparing and presenting their posters in a clear and elegant way, there will be a Best Poster Award voted on by the GD 2018 attendees.
