// EuroVis Young Researcher Award
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.
Members of the visualization research community may nominate individuals for the EuroVis Young Researcher Award by contacting the awards chair, Eduard Gröller. Candidates for the EuroVis Young Researcher Award 2019 must have finished their PhD in 2014 or later.
