ISEA2006 SYMPOSIUM CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
FOR PAPERS AND PRESENTATIONS.

  Important Notice:  We listen. There has been considerable feedback 
that the original Symposium call did not clearly include a call for 
Panel proposals. We have revised the call so that proposals for 
practice-based panels are encouraged. The deadline for submission of 
proposals for ISEA2006 papers, artist presentations and posters has 
been extended to January 30th to accommodate this change. Please note =

updates to the Symposium Call description.

< http://isea2006.sjsu.edu/symposiumcall/>

ISEA2006 seeks paper and presentation proposals responding to the 
Symposium themes of Transvergence, Interactive City, Community Domain =

or Pacific Rim. This is the only call for papers and presentations 
that there will be for ISEA2006.

What tactics, issues and conceptual practices expose or inform the 
distinctions of these subject terrains relating to contemporary art 
practice? What theoretical analyses illuminate art practice engaged 
with new technical and conceptual forms, functions and disciplines; 
provide for innovative strategies involving urbanity, mobility, 
community and locality; examine the role of corporations, civic 
cultural organizations and their relationship to strategic planning; 
serve to expose new portals of production and experience; and provide =

for provocative analysis of contemporary political and economic 
conditions?

The ISEA2006 Symposium is discussion and conversation based. This 
orientation is intended as a break from the tradition of reading 
academic papers and the formalities of panels and is the result of a 
month-long online discussion with 21 international participants (see 
list below). All sessions are moderated, include respondents and are 
designed to encourage audience participation. Session formats will 
emphasize questioning, debate and provocation. Papers, abstracts and 
poster texts will be pre-published on the web and in print. There 
will be a pre-symposium online public forum designed to encourage 
interaction between symposium presenters and the public to provide 
for discussion and debate.

We are seeking proposals for papers, artist and poster session.

SYMPOSIUM THEMES

INTERACTIVE CITY:

http://isea2006.sjsu.edu/thematic.html#interactive

http://www.urban-atmospheres.net/ISEA2006/

There is an invisible city growing among the growth of the megacity, 
and it is the electromagnetic, hertzian spectrum that flows 
ceaselessly with data about and from and between us, but which is 
always activated by the interfaces of commerce and government-cell 
phones, surveillance cameras, marketing databases, navigation systems =

that will alert us to a nearby sale.  We imagine the city itself as 
an interface, which accesses the future, the past, the distant, the 
present, the communal, the individual in marvelous ways that allow us =

to enjoy the 'opaque and fictitious thickness' of an invisible city 
made visible.

PACIFIC RIM:

http://isea2006.sjsu.edu/thematic.html#pacific

http://isea2006.sjsu.edu/prnmscall2/

The political and economic space of the Pacific Rim represents a 
dynamic context for innovation and creativity framed by issues of 
economic globalization, isolationist nationalism, regional 
integrations and environmental change. The concept of a Pacific Rim 
is that of a complex geo-political-economic framework that 
necessarily includes a vast network of city-states, regions and their =

associative relationships
