International Symposium on Electronic Art 2008 (ISEA2008)


We cordially invite submissions to the conference of the
International Symposium on Electronic Art 2008 that will be held in
Singapore between 25th * 30th July 2008. The conference is held
alongside workshops, courses, exhibitions, performances and other in-
conjunction events that will be held for the duration of ISEA2008
from 25th July to August 3rd 2008.

The conference, as in previous ISEAs, is expected to bring together
artists, theorists, historians, curators and researchers of media
arts from around the world to jointly explore the most urgent and
exciting questions in the field. The five themes of ISEA2008 are
especially focused on eliciting a wide range of international
scholars and artists.

Conference Programme

The conference programme will include competitively selected, peer-
reviewed individual papers and panel presentations. This year we are
also encouraging artists who wish to share their works with a broader
audience of their peers to submit artist presentations where they can
speak about the specific aesthetic, conceptual and technological
aspects of their works. The conference also promises to present a
list of internationally renowned Keynote Speakers expounding on the
major themes of the conference. There will also be a special lecture
delivered by a Nobel Laureate.

Call for Proposals

We welcome contributions from creative practitioners and researchers
from a variety of disciplines and institutional contexts as media
