World Trade Center Zaragoza (WTCZ), Spain

We are pleased to invite you to Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks, the 6th Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2015, taking place at the World Trade Center Zaragoza (WTCZ) in Spain, on Tuesday, 2 June 2015. The 2015 symposium will follow our established recipe, leveraging interaction between those areas by means of keynotes, a number of contributions, and a high-profile panel discussion. In our call, we are looking for a diversity of research contributions revolving around networks in culture, networks in art, networks in the humanities, art about networks and research in network visualization. As in previous years, selected papers will be published in print, both in a Special Section of Leonardo and in a dedicated Leonardo eBook. Deadline to submit: 29 March 2015. Find out more.
