The International Symposium on Graph Drawing and Network Visualization has been the main annual event in the area of geometric representation of graphs for more than 25 years. Its focus is on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects of graph drawing as well as the design of network visualization systems and interfaces. Graph drawing and network visualization are motivated by applications where it is crucial to visually analyze and interact with relational datasets. Examples of such application areas include data science, social sciences, distributed computing, information systems, biology, geography, business intelligence, information security and software engineering.

Researchers and practitioners working on any aspect of graph drawing and network visualization are invited to contribute papers and posters and to participate in the symposium and the graph drawing contest.

GD2020 is organized by the University of British Columbia, Department of Computer Science in cooperation with the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences and will be held online due to the Corona virus outbreak.
