GVP 2014 Call For Papers:
1st International Workshop on Graph Visualization in Practice
August 1, 2014
Co-located with Diagrams 2014 and VL/HCC 2014 in Melbourne, Australia

The "Workshop on Graph Visualization in Practice: Challenges and
Methods" is a forum to foster exchange and discussions among researchers
in graph visualization and people from application areas that require
graph visualization. The objective is to discuss challenges emerging
from applications, recent advances in research, and how to facilitate
the transfer of research results into practical applications.

Graphs provide a versatile model for data from a large variety of
application domains, including biology, finance, information security,
telecommunication, software engineering, and social sciences. Graph
visualization helps scientists and engineers to understand critical
issues in these domains. However, the depth of understanding depends on
the quality of the visualization and the interactive interface. Graph
visualization techniques need to be intuitive for domain experts to
facilitate exploration of networks within the experts' work flow. In
particular, one has to take into account application semantics or
user-defined constraints. In many areas, the application of graph
visualization methods seems to lag behind the current state of the art
in research by many years, whereas in others the most pressing
challenges have not yet been addressed sufficiently by the research

We invite researchers in the field of graph visualization and related
areas as well as practitioners in fields of application both from
academia and industry to submit papers.

Papers should either describe substantial research in graph
visualization concerned with application-driven requirements (long
paper, 10 pages maximum) or ongoing research, experiences and challenges
in application areas (short paper, 5 pages maximum).

The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to:
  * graph drawing
  * interactive graph exploration
  * graph-based visual data analysis
  * evaluation of graph visualizations
  * graph visualization software
  * graph models and analysis

All submissions should be in Springer's LNCS format. The proceedings
will be published by CEUR. We plan to organise a special issue of a
journal for extended versions of the best papers.
