GRAPHS AS MODELS (GaM 2015) - First International Workshop
Satellite Event of ETAPS 2015, London -- 11-12 April 2015


Graphs are used as models in all areas of computer science. A key aspect in the adoption of graphs as models is the existence of proper tooling to support their manipulation in practice. The new Graphs as Models (GaM) workshop combines the strengths of two pre-existing workshop series: GT-VMT (Graph Transformation and Visual Modelling Techniques) and GRAPHITE (Graph Inspection and Traversal Engineering), but also solicits research from other areas.


The workshop now seeks submissions of tool demos proposals. These proposals will not be filtered by reviews, unless selection turns out to be needed. We will try to accommodate as many demos as possible in the Tool Demos session planned for Saturday (11/April).

If you have a tool that is based on or makes use of graphs, we want to hear from you! This is great opportunity to advertise your tool to a large, engaged audience of graph practitioners.

The proposals should be submitted through EasyChair at:

When submitting, please select the category 'Tool demo'. You will be asked to supply the tool title and a brief summary of what you plan to show in your demo.

Important Dates

- Deadline for tool demos submission: 31 March 2015
- Workshop: 11-12 April 2015

Workshop Format

GaM is a one and a half-day workshop programmed as a mixture of:

- Submitted paper presentations.
- Fully interactive sessions, such as:
. Community challenges:
In-depth discussions about unresolved, graph-related problems.
. Discussion groups:
Brainstorm discussions on a chosen topic concerning the use of graphs
as models.
. Tool Demos:
Presentation of tool demos to convince the audience that they really
need the functionality a graph-based tool offers.
