In addition to the extensive academic program, ELO 2015 includes a number of events that are open to the general public, and where admittance is free: five exhibitions, two performance nights and an afternoon of academic presentations on electronic literature for children.

The Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) was founded in 1999 by UiB's Scott Rettberg, then a Chicago-based author and scholar, with novelist Robert Coover and internet business leader Jeff Ballowe. In 2015 Scott Rettberg is conference chair for the ELO annual conference. Jill Walker Rettberg is program chair, and Roderick Coover (Temple University) is arts chair.
