Deep generative models have achieved great success in areas such as image, speech, and natural language processing in the past few years. Thanks to the advances in graph-based deep learning, and in particular graph representation learning, deep graph generation methods have recently emerged with new applications ranging from discovering novel molecular structures to modeling social networks. This paper conducts a comprehensive survey on deep learning-based graph generation approaches and

We also present publicly available source codes, commonly used datasets, and the most widely utilized evaluation metrics. Finally, we review current trends and suggest future research directions based on the existing challenges.
