Several VRVis researchers and key researchers were present at this year's edition of the most important European visualization conference.
VRVis was once again strongly represented at this year's EuroVis conference (from left to right): researcher Stephan Pajer, key researchers Silvia Miksch and Eduard Gröller as well as research group leaders Kresimir Matkovic and Johanna Schmidt.
Johanna Schmidt, head of our Visual Analytics Area, was involved in EuroVis 2022 as both Poster Chair and Session Chair. During the opening of the conference, she presented the data of the selected posters.
Science communication and dissemination are core tasks of successful cutting-edge research. For this reason, VRVis regularly supports international conferences and meetings of the scientific community. At EuroVis 2022, for example, VRVis served as academic sponsor.
The green courtyard of the historic Angelicum Congress Center in the heart of Rome provided the ideal setting to discuss new technology advances and research ideas in the cool shade.
Im Rahmen der EuroVis kommen alljährlich Visualisierungsforschende aus ganz Europa zusammen. Visual-Analytics-Expertin Johanna Schmidt übernahm in diesem Jahr gleich mehrere Chair-Funktionen.
From June 13-17, 2022, the 24th edition of EuroVis brought together visualization researchers from all over Europe for the first time since the Corona pandemic in one location. The Sapienza Università di Roma organized the conference at the Angelicum Congress Center in the heart of Rome. As an impressive historical building with a landscaped courtyard and a garden overgrown with lemon trees, the Angelicum Congress Center provided the perfect setting for scientific exchange during and alongside the sessions.
Besides being on-site for the first time, participating in this year's EuroVis as the academic sponsor of the conference was particularly exciting for VRVis. In addition, Johanna Schmidt, head of our Visual Analytics Group, was part of the Poster Chairs team, presenting the accepted posters at the Opening Session. She also acted as Session Chair in two sessions, one at the EuroVA Workshop and the other at the regular EuroVis conference.
The brief presentation of the VRVis Visual Computing Award during the Closing Session was certainly also interesting for the European visualization research community. The newly announced award, endowed with 5000 euros, recognizes application-oriented visual computing research along the UN's 17 SDGs and will be presented for the first time during the Visual Computing Trends 2023 symposium.
