=========================

The 21st International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) will be held August 14-18, 2015, in Vancouver, Canada. The ISEA2015 symposium will be hosted by Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Communication Arts and Technology (FCAT), and a vast variety of local academic and artistic partners. ISEA is the largest nomadic international gathering on 'electronic and emergent media'. Since its start in the Netherlands in 1988 it has taken place on 4 continents and in over 20 different cities. The event annually brings together artists, designers, academics, technologies, scientists, and general audiences. The symposium consists of a peer reviewed conference, a series of exhibitions and partner events - from large-scale interactive artwork in public spaces to cutting edge electronic music performance.

For this extended deadline, ISEA2015 welcomes submissions for two broad categories:

1 - A set of workshops and tutorials will occur on Friday the 14th, and Saturday the 15th of August 2015. See the call for workshops, tutorials, and institutional presentations for more details on how to propose yours: http://isea2015.org/call-for-proposals/workshops-tutorials/

2 - The academic symposium will occur from Sunday the 16th to Tuesday the 18th of August 2015. It includes the following activities for which we solicit submissions:

  * Long Art or Research Papers (8 pages) with Oral Presentation

  * Short Art or Research Papers (4 pages) with Oral Presentation

  * Extended Abstracts (2 pages) with Demonstration or Poster Presentation

  * Round Tables and Square Panels

  * Institutional Presentations

  * Abstracts for Artist Short Talks, Demonstration and Works in Progress

ISEA2015 submissions in the Long paper, Short paper, and Extended abstract categories need to be the full length version of the paper (not only the abstract). The Proceedings are an important outcome for ISEA, which is the main trace of the symposium and contribution to the larger academic and artistic community at large. Each submission will be thoroughly reviewed by members from our International Program Committee. Accepted submission will be published in the ISEA2015 Proceedings (with an ISBN/ISSN). These proceedings will be available online, at no cost, prior to the symposium.

For more details on how to contribute in any of the above categories, see our call for papers and panels here: http://isea2015.org/call-for-proposals/papers-posters-and-panels/

Submissions are to be made through our ISEA2015 EasyChair portal: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isea2015

While, every submission relevant to the ISEA community will be reviewed and considered, the ones relevant to the ISEA2015 theme of DISRUPTION will be given priority: http://isea2015.org/about/theme/
