Workshop Details / Call for Submissions

General Information

Graphs are used as models in all areas of computer science: examples are state space graphs, control flow graphs, syntax graphs, UML-type models of all kinds, network layouts, social networks, dependency graphs, and so forth. Once such graphical models are constructed, they can be analysed and transformed to verify their correctness within a domain, discover new properties, or produce new equivalent and/or optimised versions.

Graphs as Models’ main focus is the exchange and collaboration of researchers from different backgrounds. The workshop serves as platform to boost inter- and transdisciplinary research and wants to serve as leeway for new ideas. Thus, besides classical research presentations, the workshop is highly geared toward numerous interactive sessions.


This is a one day workshop programmed as mixture of


This workshop seeks to attract and stimulate research on the techniques for graph analysis, inspection and transformation, on an abstract level rather than in any specific domain. Thus, the concept of a graph (in its many guises) is central; contributions should address scenarios for the use of graphs in a modelling context that potentially transcend specific settings and can be applied across domains. We welcome contributions on any of the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:


The workshop seeks submissions of several kinds:

All contributions shall be submitted through EasyChair, and adhere to EPTCS style format (available here Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue in the Elsevier journal on Science of Computer Programming (SCP) after the workshop.
