Graph drawing concerns the visualization of graphs and networks and is motivated by those application domains where it is crucial to visually analyse and interact with relational datasets. Examples include social sciences, Internet and web computing, information systems, computational biology, networking, VLSI circuit design, and software engineering.
Algorithmic experiments have been considered as integral aspects of graph drawing from its very inception and are indispensable when it comes to developing practically relevant algorithms.
The main theme of this Special Issue is the role of experimentation and of algorithm engineering techniques in the design and evaluation of graph drawing algorithms and graph visualization tools. Submissions should present significant contributions supported by experimental evaluation and methodological issues in the design and interpretation of experiments, or application-driven case studies that deepen the understanding of graph drawing complexity and of the scalability of the proposed solutions and heuristics.
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
