The conference will gather artists, curators and researchers from 30 countries to present and discuss the field of new media art, in the international and local contexts, especially in Brazil, the country that is hosting the present edition of the event. The call for participation is internationally open and the accepted formats are: papers, posters and workshops. Click on “Call for Participation” in the navigation menu to submit your work.

The new media festival that is also part of the Soft Borders evente will present artworks selected by two curators - a Brazilian and an Upgrade! International Network curator.
