Here are a few pictures from the citation network of the Graph Drawing conference (GD). The nodes represent the papers that were published in GD. There are 821 papers in the data set. A edge is pointing from node a to node b, if the paper associated to node a cites the paper associated to node b. Of course this only encodes the citations within the GD conference. In particular, it ignores the fact that many papers were published subsequently as journal versions. However it is nice to expore this data. There are about 40% isolated nodes, and 20% of the nodes have only degree 1. The network has one big connected component and several very small components. I have generated a few pictures of the big component, listing only papers that have at least one GD citation. The size of the nodes reflect the in-degree (citations) of a paper.
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.
