New media meets art, science, research, and popular culture at
ISEA2004 in Stockholm - Tallinn - Helsinki. For the first time an
event of this scale is being organised between three cities and on
the ferry travelling between these three Baltic countries.
International participants and local audiences attend thematic
conferences, exhibitions, live performances, screenings, satellite
events, concerts and clubs. Many events are also interfaced via
television, radio, broadband Internet, and mobile networks.

We are encouraging: Socially, critically and ecologically engaging
work; Projects that bring the creative media to the streets; Projects that
are worn on or inside people; Context sensitive work in the museums;
Projects that float, dock or sail; Screen based media as it appears in 2004;
Sea Fair: technological gizmos for ferry travellers and future media
archaeologists to discover; Bridges between club scenes and art venues; Most
engaging works from performing arts that engage new media, users, and
audiences; Networks to network...

Key themes for the event include:
Networked experience (Stockholm)
Wearable experience (Tallinn)
Wireless experience (Helsinki)
Histories of the new: media arts, media cultures, media technologies
- all cities

Additional themes include:
Open source and software as culture (Helsinki)
Critical interaction design (Helsinki)
Geopolitics of media (Tallinn)
Interfacing sound (Helsinki and on the Ferry - in collaboration with
Koneisto - check out http://www.koneisto.com for details of this year's
Koneisto Festival 24-26 July 2003)

We are currently inviting proposals for projects and papers for the
exhibitions, conferences and associated programs during ISEA2004.  Projects
might include: works for exhibition in a gallery; workshops; installations
in public spaces; live performance; interfaced screenings; games or shared
environments; projects which encourage remote participation - etc.

Proposals for the conference can include papers and panels but we are
equally interested in workshops and roundtables:  discussion formats that
encourage participation and exchange of ideas.

We are also working with a range of local organisations who may be able to
host short and medium term residencies or workshops for artists who are keen
to spend a longer time working with local artists and organisations.
Information on these opportunities will be regularly added to the web site,
so do register to receive updates.  ISEA2004 will be an exciting week long
event, but we are also interested in providing a space to build long term,
sustainable exchange and collaboration.

The time on the Ferry will provide a space for less formal dialogue and
social intercourse, so feel free to propose workshops and meetings for the
exchange of information and ideas.

Our over all aim for ISEA2004 is to create an event which is thematically
and critically coherent and provides new insight.

Please note that ISEA2004 is a forum for artistic, academic, and culturally
or socially relevant work that has not previously been presented in
international forums (you may have showed/presented it in your local

All submissions are done via our website using a web form and stored into a

to hearing your ideas!
