At the EuroVis 2020, VRVis was again strongly represented with contributions from our researchers Katja Bühler, Johanna Schmidt and Kresimir Matkovic.
As session chair for the virtual edition of the EuroVis 2020, Johanna Schmidt, visual data expert at VRVis, had to keep an eye on the online discussion as well as the YouTube chat channel and other contributions to the discussion during her moderation.
During the VISGAP workshop at EuroVis 2020, Johanna Schmidt presented the video lecture "Visualization in Notebook-Style Interfaces", which she created together with Thomas Ortner, and subsequently answered questions from conference participants.
In her pre-recorded video lecture, Johanna Schmidt presented the ideas for visualizations developed together with VRVis researcher Thomas Ortner using notebook-like interfaces.
Katja Bühler was Chair of the "Guidelines and General Considerations" session at EuroVis 2020.
The lecture video "Dual Radial Set" by Kresimir Matkovic was presented during the EuroVA workshop. Afterwards the expert for interactive visualizations answered questions of the conference participants.

The conference's big social event also took place online, where participants from all countries could talk to each other via Zoom meetings.
The virtual tools even allowed lively discussions about future paper ideas.
Johanna Schmidt was also active as session chair, and a small glimpse behind the scenes shows how she had to keep an on the video conference, the discussion forums and the YouTube chat at the same time.
Katja Bühler and Katharina Krösl took part in the first EuroVis Women's Lunch, which this time invited to a virtual exchange of experiences and ideas.
This year's EuroVis conference, which took place from May 25 to 29, 2020, and is the most important European conference in this field of research, stood under a special star, as the organizers' declared goal was to combine the two conferences EuroVis and Eurographics and hold them together in Norrköping, Sweden. This goal was achieved, however, due to the corona situation the conference was held online.
VRVis was well represented: Katja Bühler, head of our Biomedical Image Informatics research group, acted as Session Chair and took part in the virtual Women's Lunch, together with our researcher Katharina Krösl. Johanna Schmidt and Thomas Ortner presented in the video "Visualization in Notebook-Style Interfaces" at the VISGAP workshop their ideas on how visualizations could be better integrated into data science applications. The lecture video "Dual Radial Set" by Kresimir Matkovic, head of our Interactive Visualization research group, was presented at the EuroVA workshop. The video focused on how grouped data can be better visualized. The questions for both presentations were answered live via a video conferencing setting. Johanna Schmidt also acted as Session Chair, moderating and coordinating the video conference, discussion forums and the YouTube chat simultaneously.
Last but not least, also the big social event of the conference took place online, where participants from all countries could talk to each other in zoom meetings. The virtual tools even allowed lively discussions about future paper ideas.
