Held annually in July, EVA London is one of the International EVA Conferences (Electronic Visualisation & the Arts). The first EVA conference was held in 1990. These are events where people using or interested in the new technologies can share their experiences and network in a friendly, collaborative atmosphere. Its focus is on the development and application of visualisation technologies, including art, music, dance, theatre and the sciences.
EVA London has a focus on visualisation for the arts and culture - interpreted broadly to include its implications, effects, and consequent strategies and policies. It covers the burgeoning creative uses of digital media for works of art and creative productions and is a networking event for groups and projects, including European projects and groups. The conference includes a free-of-charge Research Workshop for MA, MSc and PhD students and others, to share their research in a friendly and informal setting. EVA London aims to be inspiring and informative, collaborative and friendly.
