Overview:

SISEA was organized by the Groningen University for Applied Sciences (Rijkshogeschool Groningen, RHG), in particular the departments for Visual Arts (Academie Minerva) and Music (Groningen Music Conservatory) and SCAN, the National Center for Computer Animation. SCAN started in 1988 as a post-academic education and research institute for computer animation and later became the Masters department of the RHG Art and Music Departments, under the name Frank Mohr Institute.

The ISEA conference, main art exhibition and the night of Concerts & Performances as well as the Film & Video Show were held in the Oosterpoort, the main Conference & Theater center of the city of Groningen.

Workshops were held both at SCAN and at the Music Conservatory. Several events were organised in public space, like in the temporary ‘Video Pavilion’ of architect Bernard Tschumi and on a large electronic public display on the central city square.
