EuroVis 2015, hosted by CRS4 in Italy, is the 17th 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. Since 2014 EuroVis is a conference.
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 derive useful knowledge and insight from it. This is a ubiquitous problem. Data visualization is key in gaining an understanding 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 is 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 in the same location on May 25 and 26, 2015.
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 gathering was renamed to EuroVis and has enjoyed continued growth and success.

Travel and accommodation
Cagliari is an ideal place for EuroVis 2015. About 400'000 people live in Cagliari's metropolitan area. The city, with a wide offering of hotels and B&Bs, is well connected to the rest of Europe through regular and low-cost airlines. Its modern international airport, serving more than 3 million passengers/year, is conveniently located at only 15 minutes from downtown and the conference center. The main italian hubs of Rome and Milan are a one-hour flight from Cagliari (more information is provided on our travel pages). The mild climate of the region and the vicinity of beaches with white sands and crystal clear sea are a huge bonus for EuroVis 2015 participants (see our Cagliari and surroundings pages)!
