We're delighted and excited to congratulate Dr. Cagatay Turkay.

He was named as EuroVis Young Researcher 2019 at EuroVis in Porto.

The award recognises the outstanding scientific contributions Cagatay has made to the European Visualization community over the last 5 years. EuroVis is the primary conference and organization for visualization research in Europe.

The award acknowledges the series of outstanding contributions Cagatay has made to Visual Data Science. These have been established through visualisations, interactions, and computational methods that enable an effective combination of human and machine capabilities to facilitate data-intensive problem solving.

The committee particularly recognised Cagatay’s highly innovative and influential contributions in the visual analysis of high-dimensional data that are helping the community explore, develop and assess the roles and potential for Visual Data Science.

He was awarded a very heavy and sharp looking glass trophy that didn't;t seem particularly hand-luggage friendly.
