About EVA London

Held annually in July, EVA London is one of the international Electronic Visualisation & the Arts conferences. The first EVA conference was held in 1990, with the intention to create a space for people using or interested in the new technologies to share their experiences and network in a friendly, collaborative atmosphere. EVA London's focus is on the development and application of visualisation technologies to various domains, 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
  • covers the burgeoning creative uses of digital media for works of art and creative productions
  • is a networking event for groups and projects, including European projects and groups
  • 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
  • is inspiring and informative, collaborative and friendly

EVA London is a conference of the Computer Arts Society, a specialist group of the Chartered Institute for IT (BCS). It is sponsored and supported by these organisations.
