    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2016)

    London, UK, 12 - 14 July 2016

    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).
