## ABOUT ISEA ##

Founded in the Netherlands in 1990, ISEA International (formerly
Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts) is an international non-profit
organisation fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange
among culturally diverse organisations and individuals working with art,
science and technology. The main activity of ISEA International is the
annual International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA). In an important
move for ISEA, an agreement with University of Brighton to establish an
ISEA Headquarters was signed in July 2009. ISEA HQ provides an
administrative, academic and creative base for ISEA and develops a
fruitful partnership with a leading research University. The symposia
began in 1988.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

May/16–22/2016

Note: We have extended the main submission deadline until January 5th!

Please visit http://www.isea2016.info for full version of this call.

Electronic media exemplifies the dual meaning of revolution: to always create new while returning to the old. In this dynamic, where multiple centers and margins compete for attention, and borders to be transgressed are shifting, paradigms and practices must be replaced, repackaged and re-appropriated to keep up with the parallel evolutions in art, creativity, culture, society, and politics.

We invite full and short papers, panel and roundtable discussions, posters, artist talks / work-in-progress presentations, proposals for artworks (including concerts and performances) and events in public space responding to the above main theme of the symposium and/or to one or more of the subthemes described below.
