Montreal Digital Spring (Printemps numérique) is excited to be hosting ISEA2020 / MTL connect to be held from May 19 to 24, 2020 in Montreal, Canada.

ISEA2020 turns towards the theme of Sentience. Sentience describes the ability to feel or perceive. To be sentient is thus to be “capable of feeling,” from the Latin sentientem (nominative sentiens) while “feeling,” the present participle of sentire “to feel,” refers to “being conscious” of something. To feel or perceive something at first seems to suggest that sentience is a uniquely human trait. Yet, sentience implies sensing the world and acting on it across all entities — animal, plant, mineral, environment or machine — rather than cutting things into binaries: human / non-human, animate / inanimate, alive / dead, human / machine, nature / technology.

We ask: why sentience? Why and how does sentience matter?


ISEA2020 invites artists, designers, scholars, researchers, innovators and creators to participate in the various activities deployed from May 19 to 24, 2020.

The final submissions deadline is NOVEMBER 25, 2019.
