In 2002, J. Díaz, M. Serna and the author published “A Survey of Graph
Layout Problems”, which then was a complete view of the current state of
the art of layout problems from an algorithmic point of view. The current
review expands the contents of the original survey with updated results from these latest ten years and contributes an extensive bibliography.
In this work we describe our experience teaching an innovative Android programming workshop organized by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) within the AndroidEDU Google EMEA Program. The growing interest in Android has allowed us to apply proactive learning techniques with very good results. As teachers, this was a challenging experience, that has forced us to rethink our role, to create educational material
accordant with the new communication media (forums, YouTube, etc.), and to supply the lack of expertise with an interesting collaboration between teachers and students. After three semesters teaching this workshop, we are convinced that this is an experience to share since the results have far exceeded our expectations.
