Open Problems Wiki

This project was inspired by the last year’s paper on Selected Open Problems in Graph Drawing by Brandenburg et al. (Proc. 11th GD. Vol. 2919 of LNCS. (2003) 515–539). While being a very good start, a paper is inherently static and will become out-dated. For dynamic content, what open problems (hopefully) are, a web-site is more appropriate. Keeping such a site up-to-date, however, is time consuming and requires good knowledge of recent work. In projects like the free encyclopedia Wikipedia these obstacles are overcome with a collaborative approach: everyone is allowed, and even requested, to contribute his knowledge to the site. The Open Problems Wiki makes use of this paradigm to provide a forum for collecting open problems in graph drawing.
