We also bring your attention to the call for MA and PhD Thesis abstracts in Art, Science and Technology:

The Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS) is a comprehensive database of Ph.D., Masters and MFA thesis abstracts on the intersection of art, science and technology. Individuals receiving advanced degrees in disciplines that investigate philosophical, historical or critical applications of science or technology to the arts are invited to submit abstracts of their theses for consideration. Selected abstracts are published in Leonardo Electronic Almanac. Authors of most highly ranked abstracts are invited to submit an article for publication in Leonardo. The aim of the LABS database is to give visibility to interdisciplinary work. Annual submission deadline: 30 June. For more information, contact Sheila Pinkel at <>.
