The Electronic Visualisation and the Arts conferences (EVA Conferences for short, aka Electronic Information, the Visual Arts and Beyond) are a series of international interdisciplinary conferences mainly in Europe, but also elsewhere in the world, for people interested in the application of information technology to the cultural and especially the visual arts field, including art galleries and museums.[1] Started in London (UK), there are now conferences in Berlin (Germany), Florence (Italy), Jerusalem (Israel), Moscow (Russia), and other major cities.

The first EVA Conference was held at Imperial College, London in 1990,[2] organized by the founders James Hemsley, Kirk Martinez, and Anthony Hamber.

The conferences have been overseen by EVA Conferences International, based in London. Conference proceedings are published.[3][4] In addition, two collected volumes of revised papers are available.[5][6]

The EVA London conference is now organized through the Computer Arts Society (CAS), a Specialist Group of the British Computer Society (BCS) each July at the BCS London office.[7]
