EVA London 2021

Online 5th – 9th July 2021

The Electronic Visualisation and the Arts London 2021 Conference (EVA London 2021) is co- sponsored by the Computer Arts Society (CAS) and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, of which the CAS is a Specialist Group.

Of course, this is a difficult time for all conferences, with the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the EVA London 2021 Conference is an online conference, as it was in the previous year as well. We continue with publishing the proceedings, both online, with open access via ScienceOpen, and also in our traditional printed form.

Over recent decades, the EVA London Conference on Electronic Visualisation and the Arts has established itself as one of the United Kingdom’s most innovative and interdisciplinary conferences. It brings together a wide range of research domains to celebrate a diverse set of interests, with a specialised focus on visualisation.
