ISEA International is a not for profit organization constituted in the Netherlands. It is managed by a voluntary board who oversee the activities of ISEA International. The main activity of ISEA International is the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), an annual gathering of the international art, science and technology community. The symposium includes an academic conference, exhibitions, performances and workshops. It is a nomadic event and is held in a different location every year. Selection of ISEA symposia is made by the ISEA International Foundation Board on the basis of a competitive bidding process. In an important move for ISEA, an agreement with University of Brighton to establish an ISEA Headquarters was signed in July 2009. ISEA HQ provides an administrative, academic and creative base for ISEA and develops a fruitful partnership with a leading research University. Sue Gollifer, Principal Lecturer in the Faculty of Art and Course Leader of the Digital Media Arts MA is the ISEA International Headquarters Director at the University of Brighton

ISEA International Board

The ISEA International Foundation Board is the governing body of ISEA. The primary role of the Board is to oversee the continuation of the annual symposia. The Board holds its General Meeting at each annual symposium, where it updates the public activities and invites organizations bidding for future symposia to present their proposal.
