ISEA 2008  ::  July 25 - August 3

Call for Papers, Panels and Artist Presentations

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

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 arts benefits
from and exemplifies the interdisciplinary linkages between contemporary
art, science, technology and their related philosophies, pedagogies and
institutional practices. The submissions must address or be of relevance
to at least one of the themes of ISEA2008 in order to be considered for
inclusion in the conference. The conference will be of interest to those
working in but not limited to the following areas: media art, contemporary
art, design, art history and theory, film and media studies, gaming, toy
design, human-computer interaction, cultural studies, literary studies,
musicology, sound studies, theatre, dance and performance studies,
science, technology and society studies, history of science and history of
technology, philosophy, history, gender studies, political science,
anthropology, sociology and geography.

Submission requirements:

We only require abstracts (not more than 300 words) of the proposed paper,
panel presentations and artist presentations to be submitted in either
Text, RTF, Word or PDF formats via this site. Please do not submit full
papers at this stage. While we encourage submissions to include relevant
images, it would be useful if the formats in which such images are
submitted is restricted to low resolution jpegs. In the case of
submissions for artists’ presentations, artists are encouraged to provide
links to their and/or relevant websites.

The deadline for submissions will be 31st August 2007. Submissions sent
after this date will not be considered.
