Jena Osman’s “The Periodic Table As Assembled by Dr. Zhivago, Oculist” was mentioned recently on the ELO site as a work in need of renovation; Osman was seeking a programmer to help restore the work. It is now back online and accessible to the public, thanks to David Ayre.
E-Poetry 2007, Paris
The most important International Festival of Digital Poetry
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Every two years, the E-Poetry series of Digital Poetry Festivals constitutes the most important digital literary gathering in the field. Authors and researchers worldwide meet and present their ideas and works. E-Poetry plays an essential role in the emergence of this new literary field, and provides a forum for the circulation of the ideas and the debates that animate it.
The festival has two facets: a university symposium and numerous artistic presentations.
The symposium will take place at the UniversitÃƒÂ© Paris VIII. It will permit researchers to present their latest research and for artists to premier their newest works. Symposium papers will be published by HermÃƒÂ¨s Science Publications.
Artistic events will take place at key Parisian venues, providing notable authors the opportunity to present their works to a public curious about new literary and artistic trends employing technology and communication.
