I just saw that the accepted papers of this years Symposium of Graph Drawing have been posted (see here for titles and authors). I have one paper about grid embeddings of 3d polytopes via a realization of a dual polytope which is joint work with my student Alex.
I am looking forward to go to Bordeaux in September and will post my impressions.
In a former post I wrote about the art exhibition "Bending Reality" that took place at Schloss Dagstuhl. The exhibition was part of a workshop about curved graph drawings. I am happy to announce that the organizers have set up a webpage that contains all the exhibits (including the nice metro maps of Maxwell Roberts). One of my favorites is the "Flowerpot" by Günter Rote.
