Evolving-Graph Drawing Competition

The challenge of drawing large evolving graphs can be addressed in various ways. Any visualizations based on the contest data, including animations, static images, subgraphs and derivations of the contest graph, are welcome as submission. In addition to the visualizations, we encourage contestants to submit supplemental material, such as background relevance of the graph, case studies, concepts, algorithms, experiments, structural results, that address the problem of visualizing this type of data in a meaningful way.

Contest Data

A real-world data set is provided that is based on the Internet Movie Database.

The graph is a bipartite graph where each node either corresponds to an actor or to a movie. There is an edge between a movie and each actor of the movie.

Moreover, the data contain the following attributes at nodes:


The graph is available in GraphML format (compressed with bzip2):
