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

The English LABS, Spanish LABS and Chinese LABS international peer review panels review abstracts for inclusion in their respective databases. The databases include only approved and filed thesis abstracts. Abstracts of theses filed in prior years may also be submitted for inclusion.

In addition to publication in the databases, a selection of abstracts chosen by the panels for their special relevance will be published twice a year in Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), and authors of abstracts most highly ranked by the panel will also be invited to submit an article for publication consideration in the journal Leonardo .

Next submission deadline: 31 December 2007
