Leonardo Co-Sponsors YASMIN Network Around Mediterranean Rim

Leonardo is pleased to announce the launching of the YASMIN mailing and discussion list hosted by the University of Athens. It is a collaborative project of a consortium of organisations and individuals around the Mediterranean rim and region.

YASMIN is a network of artists, scientists, engineers, theoreticians and institutions promoting communication and collaboration in art, science and technology around the Mediterranean Rim. We seek to promote contact and collaborations.

YASMIN welcomes information on events, artists' works, organisations' programmes, projects, initiatives as well as discussions and critical analysis in the field of art, science and technology around the Mediterranean Rim.

The official language of the YASMIN list is English. However posts in the other languages mastered by the moderators are allowed as long as a summary of the post in English is provided. Those languages are currently: Spanish, Catalan, Italian, Portuguese, French, Greek, Arabic and Hebrew.

We welcome everyone to subscribe to the list at: http://www.media.uoa.gr/yasmin/

NOTE: You must first REGISTER on YASMIN and then in a second step SUBSCRIBE if you wish to receive the YASMIN information by email.

Each new subscriber is asked to introduce themselves to the list and describe their activities.

The list is currently moderated by the following team: Julien Knebusch, Samirah Alkassim, Ahmed Hassouna, Pau Alsina, Dimitris Charitos, Neora Berger and Nina Czegledy. They form the "YASMIN Group" together with Roger Malina, Jaco Du Toit, Annick Bureaud and Andreas Giannakoulopoulos.

We are currently inviting in individuals around the mediterranean rim to serve as corresponding editors. Please contact us if you are interested.

The YASMIN mailing list was made possible thanks to ISOC (Internet Society), The Rockefeller Foundation, Leonardo/OLATS, The University of Athens, Artnodes - UOC Barcelona and all the coordinators from the "YASMIN Group". It is co-sponsored by the DigiArts Programme of UNESCO.

Welcome on board!
