Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS)
Next submission deadline: 30 March 2006

Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), consisting of the English LABS
database and Spanish LABS database, is a comprehensive collection of
Ph.D., Masters and MFA thesis abstracts on topics in the emerging
intersection between art, science and technology. Individuals receiving
advanced degrees in the arts (visual, sound, performance, text),
computer sciences, the sciences and/or technology that in some way
investigate philosophical, historical or critical applications of
science or technology to the arts are invited to submit abstracts of
their theses for consideration.

The English LABS and Spanish LABS international peer review panels
review abstracts for inclusion in their respective databases. The
databases include only approved and filed thesis abstracts. Abstracts of
theses filed in prior years may also be submitted for inclusion.

In addition to publication in the databases, a selection of abstracts
chosen by the panels for their special relevance will be published
quarterly in Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), and authors of abstracts
most highly ranked by the panel will also be invited to submit an
article for publication consideration in the journal Leonardo.
