EuroVis 2016, hosted by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands (6-10 June 2016) is the 18th annual visualization gathering organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and supported by the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee (IEEE VGTC). EuroVis has been a Eurographics and IEEE co-supported international visualization symposium held in Europe annually since 1999. EuroVis has been a conference since 2012.

The exciting and vibrant field of data visualization is an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. In general, our ability to collect, store, and archive data vastly exceeds our ability to derive useful knowledge and insight from it. This is a ubiquitous problem. Data visualization is key in gaining an understanding of large, complex data sets by exploiting the human visual system. Data visualization leverages computer graphics in order to provide a visual overview, explore, analyze, and present phenomena which are often difficult to understand.

The objective of EuroVis is to foster greater exchange between visualization researchers and practitioners, and to draw more researchers and industry partners in Europe to enter this rapidly growing area of research. EuroVis has an expanded scope to include all areas of visualization, and a steadily more wide-spread visibility that achieves a more wide-spread impact.

EuroVis papers are published as a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum (CGF), the International Journal of the Eurographics Association, using a two-stage review process.

The main conference is preceded by co-located events, which will be held at the same location on 6 and 7 June, 2016.

Previous EuroVis Events

EuroVis began as the Eurographics Workshop on Visualization in Scientific Computing in 1990. In 1999, in Vienna, the event was first held as a symposium under the new short name VisSym. In 2005, the event was renamed to EuroVis. Since its inception, EuroVis has enjoyed continued growth and success. The complete list of previous EuroVis events is available here.
