講演題目：Theory and Practice of Graph Drawing:
Visualisation and Analysis of Large and Complex Networks
講演者：Dr. Seok-Hee Hong (University of Sydney and NICTA, Australia)
Graph Drawing is the construction of geometric representations (i.e.
visualisations) of graphs in two or three dimensions.
Recent technological advances have led to many large and complex network
models in many domains, including social networks, biological networks,
webgraphs and software engineering.
Visualisation can be an effective analysis tool for such networks. Good
visualisation reveals the hidden structure of the networks and amplifies
human understanding, thus leading to new insights, new findings and
possible prediction of the future. However, visualisation of such large
and complex networks is very challenging due to scalability and
This talk will address these challenging issues for visualisation of
large and complex networks and briefly introduce new methods and
algorithms for good visualisation of large and complex social networks
and biological networks.
