ISEA International is a nonprofit organization fostering interdisciplinary
academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organizations and
individuals working with art, science and emerging technologies.

The ISEA International Foundation Board oversees the selection of host
organizations for the annual International Symposium on Electronic Art,
(ISEA) a gathering of the international art, science and technology

ISEA International is committed to diversity and supports proposals from
both developed and developing countries. ISEA International acknowledges
that the circumstances of the Host Organization may vary considerably and
these circumstances will be taken into account. It also encourages
partnerships between developed and developing countries to submit proposals.

ISEA2009 is hosted by the University of Ulster and will take place in
Northern Ireland from 23 August ? 1 September

ISEA2010 is hosted by Medienwerk NRW in the context of RUHR.2010, European
Capital of Culture and will take place in the cities of the German Ruhr
region (Dortmund, Essen, Duisburg) from 20 ? 29 August 2010


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 the electronic arts. In
1990 this network took shape as an association, founded in The Netherlands,
called the Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts (ISEA).

In 2006 the Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts was discontinued as a
membership organization and was replaced with the ISEA International
Foundation. In 2009 a new operational base ISEA Headquarters will be
established at the University of Brighton.

The aims of ISEA International and of the ISEA Symposia are

- Creation of a structured approach towards the problems and potentials of
electronic arts

- Promotion of communication between organizations and individuals and
promotion of interdisciplinarity and cross-cultural communication /
cooperation between the arts and the fields of technology, science,
education, and industry.

- Research, present and exhibit work related to ISEA?s mission.
