 Dear all,
 coming Monday - May 23, 2020, 9 am (CET) - the MolVA will take place at
 the EUROVIS in virtual Norrköping (Sweden).
 Thanks to the amazing organizers of the EuroGraphics and EUROVIS, this
 year the attendance will be free, including also our workshop!
 Details regarding our MolVA workshop you will find here:

 A short overview of the program follows here, the abstract goes below:
 *** Schedule ***
 MolVA: First Session on Monday, May 25, 09:00 - 10:30 CET
 - Visual Interactive Analysis of Molecular Dynamics
 - Molecular Binding in a Visuohaptic Environment: An Enhanced Approach
 in STEM Learning
 - The Vesicle Builder – A Membrane Packing Algorithm for the
 CELLmicrocosmos MembraneEditor
 MolVA: Second Session on Monday, May 25, 11:00 - 12:30 CET
 - Improved Umbrella Visualization implemented in UnityMol gives valuable
 insight on sugar/protein interplay

 - Invited talk: Molecular Visualization in Virtual Reality: challenges
 and opportunities
 *** Abstract ***
 Molecular visualization and graphics belong among the oldest branches of
 scientific visualization, which has been developing for over 50 years.
 Due to the continuous advances in both computational biology and
 computer graphics techniques, molecular graphics and visualization are
 very active areas of research. Not only the ever-increasing dataset
 sizes yield a constant challenge for visual analysis, but also new
 technologies like advances in web-based graphics or augmented and
 virtual reality open new possibilities. This half-day multidisciplinary
 workshop - which is held in conjunction with EuroVis for the third time
 and with Eurographics for the first time - brings together visualization
 and computer graphics researchers working with molecular data.  
 Whereas molecular graphics is an established topic for many years, the
 hybrid-dimensional visual analysis of molecular structures is still a
 quite new research field with a lot of potential. We would like to
 encourage submissions especially using new technologies, such as
 immersive analytics or ML-related approaches.
  
 *** Registration ***

 It might be possible without registration to attend, but please note
 that the organizers invested a lot of effort to make this high class
 conference attendance available for free. Please kindly register and
 show your support if you join the meeting at some point. Of course, if
 you are keen on visualization, you have a full week of program!
 Hope to see you Monday!
