What is LABS?
LABS is a comprehensive database of Ph.D., Masters and MFA thesis abstracts
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, which
in some way investigate philosophical, historical, or critical applications
of science or technology to the arts, are invited to submit an abstract of
their thesis for publication consideration in this database.

The LABS project does not seek to duplicate existing thesis databases but
rather to give visibility to interdisciplinary work that is often hard to
retrieve from existing databases. The abstracts are available online at
Pomona College, Claremont, California, so that interested persons can access
them at no cost.

The English language peer review panel for 2004/2005 are Pau Alsina, Jody
Berland, Sean Cubitt, Frieder Nake, Sheila Pinkel and Stephen Petersen.

What is the Leonardo International Academic Community?
The Leonardo International Academic Community is a mailing list to encourage
discussion and exchange of ideas (to join email: lea [@] mitpress [dot] mit
[dot] edu with a brief introduction) amongst leaders and thinkers in
academia. Academics also receive the Leonardo International Faculty Alerts -
announcing job and other opportunities in the field.
