Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina and I, the Leonardo Managing Editor, will be in attendance and happy to hear your thoughts about Leonardojournal, the Leonardo Affiliates Program and all other things Leonardo! If you have book or article or other proposals we will be happy to discuss with you !
