This website is an archive of the printed and digital materials from the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA).  Since 1988, this nomadic symposium has been organized in a different city by a different team each time. The ISEA symposium is overseen by ISEA International  (, a non-profit organization fostering interdisciplinary academic discourse and exchange among culturally diverse organizations and individuals working with art, science, the humanities and emerging technologies.



Since the fall of 2013, Wim van der Plas and Bonnie Mitchell have been working on version 2.0 of the archive, updating it to the present day. As of Feb. 2019 this new site, version 3.0, is being developed by a team of Bowling Green State University students led by Bonnie Mitchell and Jan Searleman and will incorporate numerous new features including cross connections between the data.
