  Graph Drawing is concerned with the geometric representation of graphs
and networks and is motivated by those applications where it is crucial to
visualize structural information as graphs. Bridging the gap between
theoretical advances and implemented solutions is an important aspect of
the conference. Indeed, advances in graph drawing are a key factor in such
technological areas as Web computing, e-commerce, VLSI circuit design,
information systems, software engineering, bioinformatics, networking, and

  GD 2003 aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from
industry and academia to advance the state of the art in graph drawing
theory and to encourage wider uptake of graph drawing techniques in

  The conference will benefit from the contributions of two distinguished
invited speakers. 45 high quality papers (selected from 89 submissions)
will be presented, drawn from a wide range of subjects including
visualization of computer networks and Web maps, graph algorithms,
visualization of software engineering diagrams, geometric graph theory and
geometric computing, software systems and libraries for graph
visualization, topology and planarity, graph combinatorics and
optimization, and visualization of chemical structures and molecules.
