The series  of symposia known as the International Symposium on Electronic
Art was initiated  in 1988 to create and maintain an international network
of organizations and  individuals active in the field of electronic arts.
In 1990 this network took  shape as an association, founded in The
Netherlands, called the Inter-Society  for the Electronic Arts (ISEA).

ISEA was  established to oversee the continuance of the symposia and each
symposium  promotes the aims and objectives of the Inter-Society:  the
event and the society are therefore  mutually supportive. Both ISEA and the
Symposium are dedicated to the  interdisciplinary and cross-cultural
communication/cooperation between the arts  and the fields of technology,
science, education, and industry. Beyond its  integral support of the
symposium ISEA also realizes its mission by supporting  other events,
developing partnerships, implementing culturally diverse  initiatives, as
well as through publishing and archiving. ISEA is committed to
collaboration, membership participation, and the creation of new  work.

The aims of  the Inter-Society and of the ISEA symposia are
- the  promotion of communication between organizations and individuals
active in the  field of the electronic arts
- the  creation of a structured approach towards the problems and
potentials of  electronic art.
- the  promotion of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural
communication/cooperation  between the arts and the fields of technology,
science, education, and  industry.
- research,  presentation and exhibition of work related to ISEAÕs  mission.
