Hi all,

I wanted to share a few open calls for Leonardo Journal. Nearest deadline
is 30 June for LABS Graduate Abstracts <>

*Leonardo <>* was founded in 1968 in
Paris by kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina who saw the
need for a journal to serve as an international channel of communication
among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and
developing technologies in their work. Published by The MIT Press and led
by executive editor Roger Malina, *Leonardo* has become the leading
international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and
technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and
influence of the arts and humanities on science and technology.

*Leonardo* is interested in work that crosses the artificial boundaries
separating contemporary arts and sciences. Featuring illustrated articles
written by artists about their own work as well as articles by historians,
theoreticians, philosophers and other researchers, the journal is
particularly concerned with issues related to the interaction of the arts,
sciences and technology. *Leonardo* focuses on the visual arts and also
addresses music, video, performance, language, environmental and conceptual
arts—especially as they relate to the visual arts or make use of the tools,
materials and ideas of contemporary science and technology. New concepts,
materials and techniques and other subjects of general artistic interest
are covered, as are legal, economic and political aspects of art.

The following are the current calls for Special Section papers for
*Leonardo *journal. Please see each for information on solicited topics,
paper types, and submission processes.
