The visualization of conceptual structures is a key component of support tools for complex applications in science and engineering. Foremost among the visual representations used are drawings of graphs and related combinatorial structures. The last few years have witnessed the establishment of a multidisciplinary research community around an annual symposium on graph drawing that attracts participants from all over the world and circulates about 1,000 copies of its proceedings. In this talk, we survey recent advances in the theory and practice of graph drawing. Specific topics include three-dimensional representations, methods for constraint satisfaction, and experimental studies.
