Summit on New Media Art Archiving
Summit on New Media Art Archiving was major success
The Summit took place as planned, without flaws, thanks to the support of the ISEA2020 organisation for the first 5 hours (the 16 presentations and 5 q&a sessions) and the Zoom hosting by Bonnie Mitchell for the 3 parallel break-out sessions and the plenary concluding session, during the last 3 hours.
The order of the presentation programme was mainly based on the respective time zones of the presenters, that varied from Australia to Peru (16 hours time difference between those two locations). The presentations were prerecorded by the presenters and submitted as video files, the q&a sessions with the presenters and the roundtables (Break Out & Concluding sessions) where all life. Some 100 people participated.
Seven of the papers will appear in the ISEA2020 Proceedings, that will be published shortly and included in the ISEA Symposium Archives. We are also in the process of entering the abstracts of all presentations. The videos of the presentations will be embedded in our new (under construction) archive and links will be included in this ‘classic’ ISEA archive. The discussions have also been recorded. How we will make those public is still to be decided.
The four organising parties (the archives of ADA, Ars Electronica, ISEA and SIGGRAPH Art Show) will produce a report of the meeting soon, including planned future actions, as we will continue the co-operation and extend the network gradually.
