EuroVA 2020


EuroVA 2020 is the eleventh international EuroVis workshop on Visual Analytics.

It will take place on Monday, May 25, 2020 in the online world around Norrköping, Sweden and is co-located with Eurovis and Eurographics 2020 (
Please find more information on the topic here in our Virtual EuroVA information (

Visual Analytics is a problem-solving and sense-making technology that integrates analytical computations, visual representations, and interaction. It includes the analysis of complex (massive, dynamic, uncertain, …) data and information for gaining understanding, building knowledge, and inferring insight. Visual Analytics aims at a synergistic collaboration of humans and computers mediated through interactive visual interfaces. As such, Visual Analytics is an interdisciplinary field of research, including aspects of visualization, human-computer interaction, statistics and mathematics, data management and knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning, cognitive and perceptual sciences.

EuroVA 2020 is the premier workshop to present and discuss fresh ideas on new methods and theories, novel applications, designs, and studies on the use of Visual Analytics methods and systems. The workshop will accept a wide range of contributions within the broad area of Visual Analytics, including novel techniques, systems, applications, evaluation studies and methods, and theoretical foundations, as well as fresh viewpoints on future challenges and critical reflections. 

Proceedings will be published in EG Digital Library. Following the workshop, selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue of the Information Visualisation journal or to extend their paper as a regular submission to the ACM TiiS journal (further details to be announced later).

Call for Submissions

EuroVA, a premiere workshop on Visual Analytics, seeks to attract innovative, fresh and creative ideas with a high potential of becoming significant contributions to the Visual Analytics community. 

We welcome a wide range of contributions within the broad area of Visual Analytics, including research papers presenting novel techniques or systems, evaluation studies and methods, and theoretical foundations, application papers that describe success stories of Visual Analytics in practice, as well as fresh position papers expressing novel and potentially controversial viewpoints on Visual Analytics.
