<b>Ciber at RT Conference! Challenges for a Ubiquitous Identity</b>
The Ciber at RT Conference 2004 is in Bilbao, Spain, April 
24-30.  Presenters include Roy 
Ascott, Natasha Vita-More, Mark Amerika, Derrick de 
Kerckhove, Kelly Dobson, Kjell Yngve Petersen...

"The International Festival of New Technologies, Art 
and Communication: Ciber at RT Bilbao 2004 is preparing 
its next edition which, under the heading "Challenges 
for a Ubiquitous Identity," will take place in the city of 
Bilbao from Friday 23rd to Friday 30th of April.
  Since the beginning, in 1995, the main aim of this 
festival has been to deal with the essential elements in 
artistic production through digital media and to reflect 
on the changes society undergoes as a consequence of 
the presence of technological resources, processes and 
mediations.  Ciber at RT Bilbao 2004 is a multidisciplinary 
festival, as 
it becomes obvious from the great variety of 
programmed activities in its various sections: Net-Art, 
Off-line Multimedia Projects, International Conference, 
Computer Animation, Minimisation and Interactive 

Ciberart Bilbao 2004 will be held at two venues: the 
Festival at the Mercado del Ensanche and the 
Conference at the <b>Palacio Euskalduna 

EXHIBITION - A total of 237 works will be on show at 
the Mercado del Ensanche<br>

"<b>Ciber at RT Bilbao 2004</b> will bring new proposals 
and sections with the aim of updating the contents in 
keeping with the artistic-scientific development.  
   Our objectives are: to be a world-wide showcase for 
the art of the new media; to take on the multiplicity of 
media, systems, tools, medium, forms and modes, which 
are present in the context of contemporary creation 
and research all over the world; to serve as a 
springboard for the sectors involved; to provide a 
hedge for the creators who apply the new technologies 
in their works and to help to spread and show their 
works of art."

Conference focus
The International Conference of the Festival 
Ciber at RT Bilbao 2004 is a biannual event and is a 
space for debate and reflection.

"Under the name Challenges for a Ubiquitous Identity it 
will focus on the challenges posed by cyberculture and 
the new artistic practices that use digital technologies 
and emerging technologies for their development. These 
technologies and the discussions, which they generate, 
have a wide-reaching social repercussion."
