   My name is Concha García. I am the Co-ordinator of VIDEONET-06, an
   event of video and Net-Art that is produced by last-year students of
   Fine Arts Universities.

   The first edition of VIDEONET took place last year and included works
   made only by students of Spanish Universities. Due to the success of
   the previous edition we have decided to replicate the same experience
   this year, broadening its scope by inviting as well students from
   Potugal, Mediterranean and Latin-American countries.

   VIDEONET-06 is organized by the School of Architecture and Fine Arts
   of the European University of Madrid, Spain, and specifically by the
   Official Master of Contemporary Art,
   [1]http://postgrado.uem.es/listado/arte, which will start next
   academic year 2006-2007.

   This second edition of VIDEONET will take place during the last week
   of September 2006 (25/9-29/9) in the European University of Madrid,
   which is located in Villaviciosa de Odón, Madrid, Spain.

   As part of the preparation of the event we are contacting universities
   that could be potentially interested in participating with us this

   1.      VIDEO: We would like to propose the participating Universities
   to make a 20 minutes video containing the selection of the most
   interesting pieces of work of the students from the last years of your
   University. We would like to receive them together in a DVD.

   In this regard, it is important to stress that we will not make the
   selection of the works. This will be your responsibility as
   participating university, since the aim is to show the most
   representative pieces of the work that is being undertaken in your

   It would be good if you could attach a presentation (video or short
   text) containing information regarding the works and the authors. This
   presentation should not exceed 10 minutes.

   2.      NET-ART. Each University will have allocated a time span of 30
   minutes. You should send us an instruction note to make the guided
   tours in Internet, and a brief introduction of the students´ works.
   We would like to get from you a maximum of 10 works.

   3.      DEADLINE. The deadline for the presentation of the works will
   be Friday, 1st September  2006.

   4.      We would appreciate if all the works could be compiled by one
   single person before being sent to us, since this would significantly
   simplify the reception of the contributions by each University.

           The works should be sent to the next adress:


           Departamento de Creación Artística

           Despacho C-012
     Universidad Europea de Madrid
      28670 Villaviciosa de Odón. Madrid (SPAIN)

   5.      We would exhort you not to use unusual CODECS.

   6.      We intend to invite several representatives of Spanish
   national institutions with international projection to comment on the
   works of the students, who are the real protagonists of the event.
   Among these institutions we will have the international magazine
   LAPIZ, the INTERMEDIAE Programme of the Comunidad de Madrid  and the
   MNCARS (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía).

   7.      No payment will be done for the exhibition, so all
   Universities that decide to participate in the event should accept
   this condition. The view of the works will be done in the educative
   context of the University. We commit to show the works EXCLUSIVELY
   WITH AN EDUCATIVE PURPOSE and in the framework of the VIDEONET-06.
   Therefore no claims concerning reproduction rights will be accepted.

   I thank you in advance for your collaboration and remain at your
   disposal for any further information or clarification you may need.
