>1.1 What is Ars Electronica?
>....................................
>
>Once a year, Linz is the centre of computer culture. The Ars Electronica
>Festival, established in 1979 to provide an open meeting-place for
>artists, scientists and researchers, has since developed into a
>world-famous forum for the arts, technolgy and society.
>
>The 96 Festival was of particular significance, marking the inauguration
>of a new phase of the Ars Electronica project: Until then Ars Electronica
>has appeared as an annual highlight, concentrated into a few days
>duration, in the international calendar of events. The opening of the Ars
>Electronica Center in September 1996, not only marked an increase of
>activities, but equally an expansion in chronogical terms. In the form of
>the Center, Ars Electronica has now a permanent presence in the
>international context. Ars Electronica is organized by the Ars Electronica
>Center and the Austrian Broadcast Corporation (ORF), Upper Austria
>Regional Studio.
>
>Since its inception in 1987, the Prix Ars Electronica has been awarded
>annually by the ORF's Upper Austria Regional Studio within the framework
>of the Ars Electronica Festival. It is one of the most important prizes
>for the application of creativity and pioneering spirit in the field of
>digital media.
>
>1.2 What is this year's Festival theme?
>....................................
>
>On the threshold of the year 2000, Ars Electronica - in accordance with
>our conception of our mission - will focus on the future. Ars Electronica
>99 - entitled LifeScience - turns attention to the key technologies of the
>coming decades. Based upon the achievements of digital information
>technology, biotechnology and genetic engineering are bringing forth a new
>definition of our future. Life science, a term denoting a wide range of
>areas in the field of biotechnology and genetic engineering and connoting
>a "science of life," very clearly expresses fundamental associations with
>cultural and philosophical questions and issues.
>
>LifeScience Symposium
>September 5-6, 1999, Brucknerhaus Linz
>
>Information technology - long the leading-edge technology which has
>pointed the way to the future - has become the decisive tool with which
>biology can forge ahead into truly new realms. In particular, it is
>genetic engineering - outfitted with the achievements of the Computer Age
>- in which new possibilities are opening up that deliver forceful thrusts
>against the limitations and taboos of our culture. Today, no other branch
>of science approaches it as a bearer of hope for the future and
>simultaneously as a center of controversy. The LifeScience Symposium turns
>attention to the new potential for dispute and the emerging zones of
>conflict at the interface of technology and society, focusing on the
>current scenarios of science and business revolving around the gene.
>
>1.3 20 Years of Ars Electronica
>....................................
>
>20 Years of Ars Electronica
>Symposium: September 4 and 9, 1999
>
>Continually since 1979, Ars Electronica has been reflecting and analyzing
>the process of sociocultural transformation triggered by digital
>technologies. Ars Electronica's 20th anniversary is an appropriate
>occasion to carry out an archeological examination of the artistic and
>technical development of digital media, following two decades that have
>witnessed the emergence of a global Information Society that has long
>since become the determinative circumstance of our culture. The analytical
>recapitulation of this developmental process constitutes a focus of Ars
>Electronica 99.
>
>In connection with this anniversary, The MIT Press of Cambridge, MA is
>bringing out "Ars Electronica: Facing the Future. A Survey of Two
>Decades." Editor Tim Druckrey has selected 73 original texts that will now
>be republished in this volume-a compendium that impressively brings
>together in one work the past 20 years of Ars Electronica. This
>publication focuses on three main areas-history, theory and practice-which
>offer an opportunity to examine the wide-ranging activities and
>multifaceted creativity connected with the oldest and most renowned
>festival of art, technology and society. "Facing the Future" will be
>available in bookstores and at Ars Electronica beginning September 4.
>
>1.4 Ars Electronica Net Symposium
>....................................
>
>April 20 is the starting date for the LifeScience net symposium that is
>being held as part of the preliminary activities leading up to the
>Festival symposium. As a platform supporting a global exchange of views
>and as a means to prepare and more precisely formulate opinions on the
>respective issues, this form of moderated network discussion has proved
>its worth in prior years. The moderator of this year's net symposium is
>Prof. Birgit Richard, a scholar in the field of media studies and art
>history in Frankfurt.
>
>The Ars Electronica 99 Advisory Board also includes Prof. Eduardo Kac
>(US), Dr. Georg Schfbnker (Austria), and Ingrid Fischer, M.A. (Austria).
>Contributions to the discussion can be submitted in both German and
>English to: lifescience@aec.at
>
>On the festivalpage (http://www.aec.at/lifescience) you can also find an
>on-line magazine which has been designed by Oliver Frommel (Germany). This
>site is meant to accompany the LifeScience net symposium during the months
>prior to the actual Ars Electronica event in September and beyond. We will
>present material that is essential to the ongoing discussion. There are
>three major areas we found to be important in connection with LifeScience:
>technology, society and art. This won't be a scientific biological
>magazine; however, it is meant to be a serious forum for discussion about
>different aspects of LifeScience. The archive of the mailing list in plain
>format can be found on these pages too. Furthermore, we will integrate the
>best submissions to the mailing list into one of the areas of the
>magazine. We hope to provide a basis for wide-ranging discussions about
>Life Science as a key technology of tomorrow that concerns all of us.
>
>Next update: May 29th 1999

>The next announcement update will appear on May 29. It will focus on the
>winners of the Prix Ars Electronica 99. Conducted for the 13th time this
>year by the ORF's Upper Austria Regional Studio, the Prix Ars Electronica
>is the most highly regarded competition for digital media in the world.
>April 25 is the deadline for submissions to the categories of Digital
>Musics, Computer Animation/Visual Effects, Interactive Art and .net. More
