Satellite Workshop on

Data Exchange Formats


A workshop on exchange formats for graph/network data will be held prior to the 8th Intl. Symposium on Graph Drawing (GD 2000) in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, on September 20, 2000.

The intention of the workshop is to lay the foundation for a standards proposal. The workshop will be started with two presentations, followed by a discussion that should eventually lead to the specification of requirements for a common standard and the formation of a working group.
