In response to the call for papers and system demonstrations, the program committee received 57 submissions, of which 10 were demos. Each submission was reviewed by at least 4 members of the program committee, and comments were returnedto the authors.Following extensive email discussions andmultiple rounds of voting, the program committee accepted 23 papers and 9 demos. GD '98 also held an unrefereed poster gallery. The poster gallery contained 16 posters, 14 of which have abstracts in this volume.
