Short description: 

From the original call for papers and works: "The Fall 2008 Bergen Seminar on Electronic Literature in Europe will build upon the work of the e-poetry seminar held in Paris in February 2008 at the University Paris 8, the 2007 e-poetry conference in Paris, the 2007 Remediating Literature Conference in Utrecht, and other recent activity in the field of electronic literature in Europe. The goals of this gathering are: 1) To provide an opportunity for European researchers to share and discuss their current research on electronic literature, e-poetry, and digital narrative forms. 2) To provide a forum for European authors of electronic literature to share, demonstrate, read, or perform their work. 3) To discuss and explore the foundation of a European research network focused on electronic literature, funding opportunities for such a network, and network activities."
