Graph Drawing

7.5 credits

Complex information can be better perceived by using visual representations. Graph Drawing is a way of representing structural information as diagrams of abstract graphs and networks, i.e., of a set of nodes and edges as well as additional information. The aim is to develop algorithms that produce aesthetically appealing drawings! We will discuss drawing algorithms for general (directed and undirected) graphs, but also for special graphs, such as trees, directed acyclic graphs, etc. Graph Drawing is an important subfield of Information Visualization. It is of great practical relevance for many industrial applications, such as software development or analysis of biochemical networks.


Linnaeus University’s campus is located roughly 15 minutes with bicycle from the city centre.
