     available. Train and bus service are available from Washington,
     D.C. For more information on Colonial Williamsburg, visit:

   * Scope: The symposium is a forum for researchers and practitioners
     working on all aspects of graph visualization and representation. The
     range of topics considered in graph drawing includes graph algorithms,
     graph theory, geometry, topology, visual languages, visual perception,
     information visualization, computer-human interaction, and graphic

     Much research in graph drawing is motivated by applications to systems
     for viewing and interacting with graphs. The interaction between
     theoretical advances and implemented solutions is an important part of
     the graph-drawing field.

   * Call for Papers and Demos: Authors are invited to submit papers
     describing original research of theoretical or practical significance
     to graph drawing. System demonstrations are also solicited.
     Descriptions of system demos should include illustrative screen dumps
     and an explanation of the system's functionality. Regular papers and
     demo descriptions should be labeled as either long or short; long
     papers will be assigned 12 pages in the conference proceedings, and
     short papers 6 pages.

   * Graph Drawing Contest: Following the tradition of previous conferences,
     a graph drawing contest will be held. Details will appear on the website
     later this Spring.

   * Submissions: Submitted papers and demo descriptions must be received by
     May 24, 2000. Each submission should include an indication of its type
     (paper or demo description) and length (regular or short), and contact
     information for the primary author. Electronic submissions in standard
     PostScript should be sent by e-mail. Alternatively, 16 hard copies of
     the submission can be mailed to the program chair. All submissions
     received will be acknowledged promptly by e-mail.

   * Proceedings: Accepted papers will be published in the conference
     proceedings, which will appear in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture
     Notes in Computer Science. Camera-ready and electronic copies of
     accepted papers are due at the conference. Instructions for Authors
     will be available after the paper notification deadline.

     All participants will receive a copy of the proceedings as part of
     their registration.
