          Abstract

          I first encountered EVA London in 1995 through my establishment of the Virtual Library museums pages (VLmp), part of the World Wide Web Virtual Library. In 2003, I was invited back as a keynote speaker on the subject of website accessibility for cultural heritage resources. Since then I have been involved with every EVA London conference either as an author or since 2007 as a proceedings editor. This paper summarises the developments of the EVA London conference over the past 25 years from a personal viewpoint and celebrates the 30th anniversary of EVA London and the whole family of international EVA conferences. The development of the community around EVA (Electronic Visualisation and the Arts) is evaluated in the context of a Community of Practice. The paper also considers possible future directions for EVA.

            Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2017) - Index

            The Electronic Visualisation and the Arts London 2017 conference (EVA London 2017) is co-sponsored by the Computer Arts Society (CAS) and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, of which CAS is a Specialist Group. Since 1990, the EVA London Conference has established itself as one of the United Kingdom’s most innovative and interdisciplinary conferences in the field of digital visualisation. The papers and abstracts in this volume cover areas such as animation, arts, cultural heritage, museums, music, performance, virtual heritage, and visualisation, as well as other interdisciplinary areas. The latest research and work by early career researchers, established scholars, practitioners, research students, and visual artists can be found here. For more information about EVA 2017, visit www.eva-london.org or search on Twitter for EVALondonConf. The Electronic Visualisation and the Arts London 2017 Conference (EVA London 2017) is co-sponsored by the Computer Arts Society (CAS) and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, of which the CAS is a Specialist Group. 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. The papers and extended abstracts in this volume cover varied topics concerning the arts, visualisations, and IT, including 3D, animation, art, big data, creativity, design, heritage, literature, museums, neuroscience, politics, post-human bodies, publishing, social media, and virtual perception, as well as other related interdisciplinary areas. The EVA London 2017 Conference presents a wide spectrum of papers, presentations, demonstrations, a Research Workshop and a special one-day pre-conference event for the second year, the EVA Pre-Conference Symposium (entitled “Coded Communication: Digital Senses and Aesthetics, Merging Art and Life”) on 10 July 2017, with keynote and invited speakers, sponsored by the Pratt Institute in New York, and the Royal College of Art in London. This is in association with a London Summer School on “The Arts and Digital Culture” being held 26 June to 7 July 2017 at King’s College London and co-organised by the Pratt Institute, just before the EVA London 2017 Conference. This year, the Lumen Prize and V&A Digital Futures have organised the EVA London 2017 Conference exhibition, at Hackney House on 11 July 2017, together with “showreel” videos in the foyer during the EVA London 2017 Conference itself. As in previous years, there is a Research Workshop running in parallel on the first day of the conference, to encourage postgraduate student participation. Presenters at the Research Workshop are offered bursaries for free attendance on that day. Several other bursaries are also available to encourage attendance by those with no other source of funding (especially independent artists contributing to the conference, including for the Lumen Prize exhibition). EVA London 2017 presents papers and abstracts from international researchers inside and outside academia, from graduate artists, PhD students, seasoned industry professionals, established scholars, and senior researchers, who value EVA London for its interdisciplinary community. This year, the conference again features three keynote talks, one on each day of the main conference. These papers have resulted from a selective peer review process, fitting as many excellent submissions as possible into the limited timetable of the conference. This year, submissions have almost doubled from the previous year, so it is pleasing to have so many good proposals from which to select the programme. EVA London is part of a larger network of EVA international conferences. In the past twenty years, EVA events have been held in Athens, Beijing, Berlin, Brussels, California, Cambridge (both UK and USA), Canberra, Dallas, Delhi, Edinburgh, Florence, Gifu (Japan), Glasgow, Harvard, Jerusalem, Kiev, Laval, London, Madrid, Montreal, Moscow, New York, Paris, Prague, St Petersburg, Thessaloniki, and Warsaw. Further venues for EVA conferences are very much encouraged by the EVA community. EVA Copenhagen 2018 in Denmark has recently been announced.

              Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2016) - Index

              The Electronic Visualisation and the Arts London 2016 conference (EVA London 2016) is co-sponsored by the Computer Arts Society (CAS) and the BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, of which CAS is a Specialist Group. Since 1990, the EVA London Conference has established itself as one of the United Kingdom’s most innovative and interdisciplinary conferences in the field of digital visualisation. The papers and abstracts in this volume cover areas such as animation, arts, cultural heritage, interdisciplinary, museums, music, performance, virtual heritage, and visualisation, as well as other interdisciplinary areas. The latest research and work by early career researchers, established scholars, practitioners, research students, and visual artists, and can be found here.

The Electronic Visualisation and the Arts London 2016 Conference (EVA London 2016) is co-sponsored by the Computer Arts Society (CAS) and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, of which the CAS is a Specialist Group. 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. The papers and extended abstracts in this volume touch on the arts, dance, education, electronic art, mathematics, multimedia, museums, music, and photography, as well as other related areas, all involving the use of IT for the enhancement and support of the arts and humanities in some way. The EVA London 2016 conference presents a wide spectrum of papers, presentations, demonstrations, a Research Workshop and two special pre-conference events: the EVA Pre-Conference Symposium (entitled “From Analogue to Digital in Literature and Art”), with four invited speakers, sponsored by the Pratt Institute in New York, and “Digital Futures”, supported by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The former is in association with a London Summer School on “The Arts and Digital Culture” being held 26 June to 8 July 2016 at King’s College London and co-organized by the Pratt Institute, just before the EVA London 2016 Conference. The latter is an exhibition forum where the sciences, arts, humanities, and performance, are equally at home. As in previous years, there is a Research Workshop running in parallel on the first day of the conference, to encourage postgraduate student participation. Presenters at the Research Workshop are offered bursaries for free attendance on that day. A number of other bursaries are also available to encourage attendance by those with no other source of funding (especially independent artists contributing to the conference).
