Call for Students : ISEA2014 Dubai: Location 
Undergraduate Student Call For Artworks And Participation

  • Deadline for submissions: May 30, 2014.

Please propose your concepts for artworks to be on exhibit during ISEA2014 Dubai under the theme of Location. Please note that graduate students are eligible to participate in the regular “Call for Artworks” submission.
The student participation submission area is for undergraduate students who will be developing projects, undergraduate student collaborations with their professors, and classroom projects/collaborations developed in university settings.
The ISEA2014 committee encourages students to conceptualize and scale their projects with budget considerations in mind. ISEA2014 cannot provide financial assistance, but will do all in their power to assist the selected participants.
For K–12 educators interested in discussing opportunities for ISEA2014 Dubai please get in touch with our organizers at
1. Artistic Works
Please propose your concepts for artworks (performances, site-specific/responsive projects, installations, sound, videos, interactive works, online projects, traditional arts within the proposed conference themes, etc.) to be on exhibit during ISEA2014 under the theme of Location.
2. Poster Island
This will include both physical and online posters that present your original research. The posters could include text, graphics, and animations (for online PDF’s).
Please design the printed poster no larger than 3 feet width x 6 feet height (90cm x 180cm). They must include the title of the research, the presenter’s name(s) along with the necessary explanatory content. Online posters must be provided in PDF format.
3. Paper Presentation
These presentations will ideally be reserved for engaging summaries of completed research or the presentation of novel ideas that need a dedicated session.
4. Workshops
These sessions are best suited for teaching or demonstrating particular procedures, skills, or techniques. Session content may include: hands-on demonstrations, presentations of a technology or technique, or an extended dialogue with participants. Workshops will be structured to provide ample time for interaction, participation, and involvement. Workshop conveners should submit a formal description of the proposed workshop along with a list of required resources.
5. PechaKucha Night
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, including Dubai.
PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. During ISEA2014, symposium partners will be hosting two PechaKucha events (one for students and one for professionals).
