They will present their papers in the context of the five main topics around which the ISEA2010 RUHR Conference as a whole is organised.

Performance and Sound :: Keynote: Brian Massumi (qc/ca) :: Friday, August 20, 2010, 17:00h at PACT Zollverein, Essen :: In Essen, the relation between body and media will form the core theme of the ISEA2010 RUHR Conference. Interactive real-time environments for the stage, the transition from stage production to installation and the application of media strategies in the theatre are in the focus of the discussions.

Art and Science :: Keynote: Peter Weibel (de/at) :: Tuesday, August 24, 2010, 17:30 at Orchesterzentrum|NRW, Dortmund :: Artists are no longer exclusively producers of autonomous art. Instead, they frequently present results of long-term scientific research projects. The laboratory as an art space, neuro-aesthetics and media-aesthetics as the artists’ fields of work are the main subjects in this thread of the conference.

Education and the Media :: Keynote: Roy Ascott (gb) :: Thursday, August 26, 2010, 17:30h at Orchesterzentrum|NRW, Dortmund :: During ISEA2010 RUHR, international experts will deal with the role of media technologies in education. Subjects such as digital doubles, the expansion of bits and bytes into everyday life as well as the role of visitors in exhibitions will also be topics in these discussions.

Electronic Arts After Technology:: Keynote: Margaret Morse (us) :: Friday, August 27, 2010, 17:30h at Orchesterzentrum|NRW, Dortmund :: In this section of the conference, the main emphasis is put on the history and the future of media art. Recent media theories as well as the problems and challenges regarding the conservation of media art play an important role within the panels held by international experts.

Urban Space and Ecology :: Keynote: Harald Welzer (de) and Marko Peljhan (si) :: Saturday, August 28, 2010, 12:00h at the Former Protestant Parish Hall, Duisburg-Ruhrort.
