While trying to come to terms with old e-mails I found this announcement:

This is a preliminary announcement for the first international art history
conference covering art and new media art and technology art-science
interaction and the history of media as pertinent to contemporary art.

The conference will be held Sept 28-Oct 2 2005 at the Banff Centre Canada.

There will be a three day conference followed by a two day follow-up
speakers’ and organizers retreat in order to plan follow-up.

DIGIARTS Database for Virtual Art and the Banff New Media Institute. An
International Advisory Board chaired by Oliver Grau of Humboldt University

Panels and workshops in the disciplines above will have invited speakers
