The L.A.S.E.R. series (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) is an international series of evenings, started in the Bay Area in 2008 by cultural historian Piero Scaruffi, that presents great minds from different disciplines in the same setting. L.A.S.E.R. series are now taking place in more than 30 universities worldwide. The L.A.S.T. festival (Life Art Science Teach) is an annual weekend-long event, launched in 2014, that presents a science symposium and an exhibition of high-tech art. In 2018 the LASER and LAST teams of the Bay Area started an online magazine that will cover these events, cover the careers of the artists and scientists who participate, cover similar events elsewhere and cover the development of new art/science/tech movements in general, and publish original feature articles.
