 The 20th International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) submission deadline is fast approachingMonday, December 9, 2013. Submissions for papers, presentations and artworks are being accepted and will be reviewed by the International Programming Committee.

Creativity and innovation, are at the forefront of discussions as Dubai won the bid to host EXPO 2020. The ISEA2014 Organizing Committee believes the timing of the 20th International Symposium on Electronic Art in Dubai next November will be an excellent platform in anticipation of the world’s largest exhibition about the future. The ISEA2014 extends its congratulations to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for their success.

The ISEA2014 team attended Abu Dhabi Art fair and was hosted by the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation. Naziha Mestaoui, a new media artist from France, continues her residency with Zayed University, French Embassy/Institut Français, and Abu Dhabi Art Hub, presented a very powerful installation “Sounds of Light.” This followed was followed by several lectures at Zayed University Campus, and the realization of another installation at the Higher Colleges of Technology Women’s Campus in Abu Dhabi.

Artist Residency opportunities are in their final stages of planning. We are expecting several long term and short term funded residencies, as well as partially sponsored opportunities for specific submission projects. Submissions will be encouraged to respond to the subthemes and propose projects that can be realized during the residency or during ISEA2014 in November.
