The third International Conference on Graph Transformation ICGT 2006, along with several satellite events, will be held in Natal (Rio Grande do Norte. Brazil) in the third week of September 2006. It follows the conferences held in Barcelona (2002) and Rome (2004), and a series of six international workshops on graph transformation with applications in computer science held from 1978 to 1998 in Europe and the USA. The conference takes place under the auspices of EATCS, EASST, and IFIP WG 1.3. Best paper awards will be granted by EATCS and EASST. The proceedings will appear in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series by Springer-Verlag. The conference is co-located with the Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods (SBMF 2006).

Scope: Graphical structures of various kinds (like graphs, diagrams, visual sentences and others) are very useful to describe complex structures and systems in a direct and intuitive way. These structures are often augmented by formalisms which add to the static description a further dimension modelling the evolution of systems via any kind of transformation of such graphical structures. The field of Graph Transformation is concerned with the theory, applications and implementation issues of all these formalisms.

The theory is strongly related to areas such as graph theory and graph algorithms, formal language and parsing theory, theory of concurrency and distributed systems, formal specification and verification, logic and semantics. The application areas include all those fields of Computer Science, Information Processing, Engineering and Natural Sciences.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following.

Paper submission is open at Submissions should not exceed fifteen (15) pages using Springer's LNCS format, and should contain original research. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not allowed.
