Call for ParticipationPermalink

The 29th Annual Graph Drawing Contest shall be held in conjunction with the 30th International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization (GD 2022).

The contest has two parts: the Creative Topics and the Live Challenge.

Creative Topics

The creative topics are provided a year in advance and focus on free-form visualisation of specific graphs. Two graphs are provided, and participants are invited to submit any drawings of one or both of the graphs. The submissions will be judged by the contest committee during the symposium. This year's topics are the Opera Network, and the Aesthetic Experience Network.

For details, see here.

Live Challenge

The live challenge will be held during the conference (exact date TBA) in a format similar to a typical programming contest, where teams are presented with a collection of challenge graphs and have approximately one hour to submit their highest scoring drawings. This year the challenge will focus on minimizing the planar polyline edge-length ratio on a fixed grid. The tool is available here. Note that the target function changed slightly compared to last year, but the tool has not been updated yet for the new function.

For details, see here.

Awards

We are planning to award a monetary prize to up to three submissions in each of the four different categories.
