Graph Drawing Contest

Following the tradition of previous years, the 29th Annual Graph Drawing Contest will be held during the symposium. The contest is usually divided into two parts; the creative topics and the live challenge.

  • The creative topics concern two graphs and the task is to produce corresponding drawings for them.  Submissions will be evaluated according to aesthetic appeal, domain-specific requirements, readability and clarity of the visualization and novelty of the visualization concept. The data sets are available, and contestants should submit their visualizations before the conference start. 
  • The live challenge will take place during the conference in a format similar to a typical programming contest. Teams will be presented with a collection of challenge graphs and will have one hour to submit their highest scoring drawings.
