Bookmark and Share

Leonardo/the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology is pleased to announce the top-rated abstracts published in the English-language Leonardo Abstracts Service Databases throughout the past year.

Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), consisting of the English-language, Spanish-language and French-language LABS databases, 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.

Top-rated abstracts in the English language database were chosen by a peer-review panel including Yiannis Colakides, David Familian, Tom Leeser, Andrea Polli, Edward Shanken, Charissa N. Terranova, and Shawn Decker.
