EuroVA 2021

Workshop

EuroVA 2021 is the twelfth international EuroVis workshop on Visual Analytics.

It will take place on Monday, June 14, 2021 in the online world around Zurich, Switzerland and is co-located with Eurovis 2021 the Eurographics Conference on Visualization (https://www.eurovis.org/).

Visual Analytics is a problem-solving and sense-making approach that integrates analytical computations, visual representations, and interaction. It includes the analysis of complex (massive, heterogeneous, 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, data science, statistics and mathematics, data management and knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning, cognitive and perceptual sciences.

EuroVA 2021 is the premier workshop in Europe 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. 

EuroVA proceedings will be published in EG Digital Library. From 2020 EuroVA is also included in Scopus. Following the workshop, selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue of a journal.
