ISEA2000 will be a major international event for members of the artistic
community involved with new media. It consists of:
1- an international symposium composed of papers and panel sessions, poster
sessions, workshops and institutional presentations,
2- a program of exhibitions, concerts, performances, electronic theater,
"street scenes" (outdoor activities),
3- and publications.

This call for participation is open to all propositions related to the
above program of activities.

ISEA2000, the International Symposium is oriented toward :
- professionals in the arts and new media (creation, production, publishing
and broadcasting electronic arts)
- students, teachers, researchers,
- as well as the general public who are invited to attend concerts,
performances, electronic theater, "street scenes" (outdoor activities),
and exhibitions.

ISEA2000 aims to represent the diversity of those engaged in new media, and
encourages submissions from artists and researchers from cultural groups
that have been traditionally under-represented at global events and
previous ISEA Symposia.

ISEA is committed to interdisciplinary and cross-cultural
communication/cooperation between the arts and the fields of technology,
science, education and industry.

With "Revelation" as its theme, ISEA2000 will focus on new means of
representation, and will explore the effects of the technological
revolution on art and society : digital images, virtual realities,
multimedia,  interactive installations, networks etc.

ISEA 2000 "Revelation" will put into perspective the transformations
undergone by different artistic disciplines : fine arts, theatre, music,
film and video, architecture, design, fashion. It will attempt to
understand how new information and communication technologies produce means
of expression unique to digital civilizations.

In April 2000, an international programming committee comprised of
professionals working in art, culture and research will select the projects
chosen to be part of ISEA2000. These works will concern the following themes :

Digital Art
Dedicated to art history and theory, various schools of thought and their
relation to new technologies, this part of the symposium will consider
artistic movements which have preceded and accompanied the emergence of
information and communication technologies. The goal will be to gain a
better understanding of how contemporary approaches to digital art have
developed. We will also examine the ways in which these approaches are unique.

Interactivity And Generactivity : Transmitters Of New Forms
Using interactivity, global networks and computer equipment available
worldwide, authors and creators of digital works are inventing new means of
expression which dramatically alter the artist's relation to art and the
public. The form and the manner in which a work develops are no longer
solely determined by its creator. With interactive and generative
processes,  a work's form and development may be influenced by the
reactions of the
viewer, or those of its environment, and/or by a programmed autonomy.

Real time and outside interventions are thus two elements of the creative
process. How do these factors modify representation, speech, narrative and

New Arenas Of Revelation
In comparison to certain powerful cultural industries, digital creation
presents itself as being a laboratory of free expression which entirely
modifies our relation to time, space, information, communication and art.
Virtual realities and communication networks are increasingly becoming
indispensable elements of our daily environment. Can this new arena of
representation be considered a new space for revelation, and if so, for the
emergence of which emotions and meanings?

The Internet foreshadows the interconnection of a multitude of virtual
spaces for exchange and expression populated by nomadic communities.
International, interdisciplinary and multicultural, digital space abolishes
borders and is part of a massive social and cultural transformation.  It is
defining new codes of representation which are unique to cyberspace and
which call for analysis and questioning.

The transformation of creative tools resulting from the convergence of
digital techniques allows for means of expression previously unheard of, as
well as new relationships between different artistic disciplines : video
and film, fine arts, theatre, sound, writing, design, fashion, architecture.

New artistic forms emerge from these encounters. What are their
consequences? How will they affect the creative process?

All proposals must be related to these mentioned themes.



Papers can be short (20 minutes) or long (45 minutes). The papers will be
published in the ISEA2000 Proceedings after the event. All papers must be
written in English and / or French. They must be original and previously

An abstract of 500 words maximum is required for the first deadline, April
15, 2000 . After a preselection, the authors will be requested to send
their full dossier, including illustrations, videos, or other materials.

Panel proposals should contain the theme of the panel and a description of
the proposed panel members.

Poster sessions are informal presentations (about 30 minutes) of research
or art practice, with the aid of audiovisual equipment. Proposals should
include a short description of the work, with supporting visual or audio
materials (pictures, videotape, cdrom, website, etc.).

Workshops are thematic discussions open to the public. Workshop proposals
should aim at both teachers and students in the field of the electronic
arts (including music) and at Symposium participants. Proposals can cover
any field of electronic art. Workshop proposals that aim at integrating
electronic art in more traditional art forms are especially welcome.
Workshops typically include hands-on sessions. Proposals can be for a half
day session or a full day session. Workshop proposals must be sent in a
short and precise text presentation form. Since available equipment at this
stage is limited, it is important to indicate the equipment requirements as
completely as possible in the proposal.

Institutional presentations are open to institutes, organizations,
festivals etc. in the field of the electronic arts. In principle, all
relevant proposals should be accepted, but it must be noted that presenters
in this category do not receive free admission to the Symposium.


Concerts and performances will be programmed as part of the event.
Individuals and institutes are invited to submit the best and most recent
examples of their work in these fields. The street represents an ideal
space for presenting new media creations to the general public. Artists
invest the public space with a critical view of urban communication,
architecture and social debate. Proposals which relate to the above
mentioned topics and adapted to an outdoor exhibition are especially

All forms of new media creations (interactive installations, Websites,
videotapes, virtual reality works, multimedia, networks, computer aided
sculpture, digital imagery, etc.) keeping with the proposed themes are
welcome for ISEA2000's exhibitions. Proposals should clearly describe the
contents of the materials submitted, the installation requirements
(including hard and software, audiovisual equipment, necessary assistance,
etc.) and include audio and/or visual material (pictures, tapes, etc.) to
give an overview of the work.

A film and video show will be held during ISEA2000. Individuals and
institutes are invited to submit the best and most recent examples of their
work in the fields of computer animation, image processing and video art. A
broad selection will be shown at the exhibition site.

It is important to include with each proposal :
- a complete list of required equipment,
- a description of how the projects will be financed and produced.

In order to facilitate the selection submissions, ART 3000 will set up a
database of the proposals. For this reason it is strongly recommended that
submissions include an html/Web presentation of each proposal ( one page
maximum) which will be availabe for consultation on the ART3000 Website

Submitters who believe that a broader understanding of the context of their
work is important for review may include additional supporting materials,
such as a statement describing their access to technology or documentation
of other work which is not intended for current consideration. Please
clearly identify supplemental materials.

All submitters whose work is selected will receive a letter of
acknowledgment including a request to use materials for ISEA2000 publicity
and for their eventual placement in the event archives.
