Founded in the Netherlands in 1990, ISEA International (formerly Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts) is an international non-profit organisation fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organisations and individuals working with art, science and technology. The main activity of ISEA International is the annual International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA). The symposia began in 1988.
The main activity of ISEA International is the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), an annual gathering of the international art, science and technology community. The symposia includes an academic conference, exhibitions, performances and workshops. It is a nomadic event and is held in a different location every year. Selection of ISEA symposia is made by the ISEA International Foundation Board on the basis of a competitive bidding process.
The organisation now managed by the ISEA International foundation board, whose main role is to select the host city of each symposia. The foundation board works closely with the host to ensure that the goals of ISEA are achieved. Historically the symposia were held as both a biennial and annual event. As of 2009, the symposia has been held annually again.
ISEA International would like to give a special thanks to all of the volunteers who have given their time and energy over the years to make each symposium happen. Without their hard work and dedication ISEA would not be possible.
