In spite of the many techniques on graph drawing, the representation and the visual analysis of large graphs is still a challenging task. The aim of the workshop is twofold: We would like to both study models and methods for drawing large graphs in the most general setting and consider special challenges coming from specific real world

In case you have some large graphs coming from a specific application scenario (e.g. communication networks, social networks, computational biology, information security, and so on) we invite you to bring them to the workshop. If you have pictures of these graphs in some electronic format (e.g. pdf, ppt, ps), please send them to us so that we can print them out and bring to Bertinoro.

The workshop format is informal. The idea is to have a meeting with a few selected people (about 30) and work together on large graph visualization questions. There may be space for presentations but the emphasis will be on working together "pencil-and-paper". One possible outcome could be a collection of open problems as well as some original research papers.
