From June 13-17, the 24th edition of EuroVis took place in Rome, with the participation of two of our ScaDS.AI Data Visualization experts, Jeremias Schebera, Marzan Tasnim Oyshi, as well as ScaDS.AI Principal Investigator Prof. Gerik Scheuermann. At EnvirVis (which is a satellite workshop before EuroVis), Marzan Tasnim Oyshi from Scads.AI in Dresden gave a talk titled FloodVis: Visualization of Climate Ensemble Flood Projections in Virtual Reality. In addition, Jeremias Schebera presented his research project on Visualizing Similarities between American Rap Artists.
Besides to numerous presentations on machine learning and data visualization, entertainment was not to be neglected. A fixed ritual of the Envis is the organization of a party of the group that will host the EuroVis next. Thus, our ScaDs.AI employees could not go to bed early in the evening, but had to host the Party in Rome, because the upcoming EuroVis will take place in Leipzig. We are looking forward to welcome this relevant event in Leipzig next year.
EuroVis is the annual Visualization Conference organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization. It has been a Eurographics and IEEE co-supported international visualization symposium held in Europe annually since 1999, as a conference since 2012.
The exciting and vibrant field of 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 to 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 the EuroVis conference is to create and strengthen connections between visualization researchers and practitioners, to foster collaborations, and to draw more researchers 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 allows achieving a more wide-spread impact.
