Archiving, Collecting and Preserving Digital Art Summit at ISEA2020
*Announcement & Call for Participation*
The Liverpool Declaration currently has more than 500 leading experts and the most influential institutions in the field of new media and electronic arts as signatories to "MEDIA ART NEEDS GLOBAL NETWORKED ORGANISATION & SUPPORT" http://www.mediaarthistory.org/declaration 
Functioning as a mission statement, the Liverpool Declaration serves as a foundation for further action that was already being discussed at the 25^th International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2019), in Gwangju, Republic of Korea. A group of like-minded colleagues discussed approaches towards the problems and potential of the archiving of new media art. The overwhelming attendance to this meeting stressed the growing need for collaboration, structure and funding.
As a next step, at ISEA2020 (Montreal, Canada, May 19-24), a full day networking summit will be coordinated by the ISEA online Symposium Archives, the Archive of Digital Art, the Ars Electronica Archive, and SIGGRAPH Digital Art Show Archive. The definite date for the Summit is still being discussed and maybe the day preceding the actual ISEA symposium, on Monday May 18th. *Aims of this summit are to discuss roads towards realizing the Liverpool Declaration goals related to Media Art Archiving collaboration, funding and formats.*
1: Presentation of Liverpool Declaration and remarks on general state of affairs
2: Impulse Presentations (10 minutes each) of Case Studies, Infrastructures, international support
3: Breakout groups to discuss: Collaboration, Funding, Formats
