Short description: 

Digital Arts and Culture 98 was an international conference which aimed to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of theoretical and artistic developments in digital arts, media and cultures. Through paper presentations and ample space between sessions, as well as an informal social program, the conferenced aimed to create a good atmosphere for strengthening the links between the many different players and subfields within the rapidly expanding field of digital culture and aesthetic studies.
