Amsterdam, December 17, 2003 ­ The Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts
(ISEA) is extremely pleased to announce that the Thirteenth
International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2006) will be held in San
Jose, California, USA. After careful evaluation of the four
exceptionally strong bids received through an open call for proposals,
the ISEA Board unanimously decided to accept the proposal submitted by
the San Jose Convention & Visitors Bureau in collaboration with the City
of San Jose; San Jose State University CADRE Institute; San Jose Museum
of Art; ZeroOne: The Art and Technology Network; the Tech Museum of
Innovation; and Cultural Initiatives Silicon Valley. Steve Dietz, former
Curator of New Media at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, will act
as ISEA2006 Symposium Director.

The ISEA Board, composed of Peter Anders, Chris Csikszentmihalyi, Nina
Czegledy, Gunalan Nadarajan, Anne Nigten, Julianne Pierce, Wim van der
Plas, Cynthia Beth Rubin, and Mark Tribe, found the bid from San Jose to
be extremely timely and potentially invigorating for the region, while
at the same time rich in possibilities for dialogue and exchange on an
international level. Within the theme Silicon Transvergence, the San
Jose team distinctively addresses themes of culture, business, the arts
and academia, suggesting the potential for unique interaction between
all of these sectors through the symposium, exhibitions, workshops,
performances, artists in residence, and events.

"This conference is ideally suited to San Jose because we are an
established global center of technology innovation and entrepreneurial
enterprise," said San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzales. "Both our city's history
of discovery and our civic vision for the creative union of technology,
art, culture, and community will make this conference highly successful."

The Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts (ISEA) is an international
non-profit organization fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse
and exchange among culturally diverse organizations and individuals
working with art, science and emerging technologies. ISEA publishes a
newsletter; hosts an online archive and exchange environment and
oversees the International Symposium on Electronic Art, a regular
gathering of the international art, science and technology community.

The Twelfth International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2004) will be
held from August 14 ­ 22, 2004 in Stockholm, Tallinn and Helsinki. For
the first time, an event of this scale is being organised between three
cities in three countries. ISEA has previously taken place in Utrecht,
Groningen, Sydney, Minneapolis, Helsinki, Montréal, Rotterdam, Chicago,
Liverpool-Manchester, Paris, and Nagoya.
