The EuroVis Young Researcher Award is given each year to one young researcher in the field who has already made a significant contribution to visualization in general and more specifically to the European visualization community (e.g., through outstanding scientific contributions to the EuroVis conference). The intent of this award is to recognize people early on in their career who have already made a notable contribution and are likely to make more.
Each year, the award is presented at the opening ceremony of the annual EuroVis conference, and winners receive a special certificate.
Nominations: Members of the visualization research community may nominate individuals for the EuroVis Young Researcher Award by contacting the awards chair, Eduard Gröller (firstname.lastname@example.org). Candidates for the EuroVis Young Researcher Award in year N must have finished their PhD in the year N–6 or later.
Award Committee: The committee consists of three to five members from the visualization community. Each member is serving a three to five year term. The following list of rules is proposed:
- The EuroVis Young Researcher Award Chair is nominated and approved by the EuroVis Steering Committee.
- The members of the award committee are undisclosed. They are chosen by the EuroVis Young Researcher Award Chair (informing the EuroVis Steering Committee chair). Outside their committee, they are only known to the EuroVis Steering Committee Chair.
- The EuroVis Young Researcher Award Chair will inform the EuroVis Steering Committee Chair every year on the award decision, prior to the opening of the EuroVis Conference
