What the Workshop is About

The main objective of the workshop is working together on both defining open problems and research directions in the field of graph drawing. There may be space for presentations but the emphasis will be on working together "pencil-and-paper". Expected outcomes of the workshop are a new collection of open problems for the graph drawing community and some original research papers.
