San Francisco, 14 January 2008
An event for Scientists who work/think/imagine/engage at the intersections of the Arts and Science.
Chaired by Tami Spector and Piero Scaruffi.
Leonardo ISAST invites you to a meeting of the Leonardo Scientists Working Group. This event is part of the Leoardo 40th anniversary activities ( see www.leonardo.info).
We will have brief presentations by a number of the panelists for the forthcoming Leonardo Day on June 3 at UC Berkeley, a presentation by Roger Malina on "Intimate Science" and a presentation by David Stork on "Computers Analyzing Paintings". See detailed agenda below. We will also brief about the Zero1 Conference and Berkeley's New Media Conference of June 2008.
We would also like to informally discuss ideas for other events in the Bay Area before and after those major conferences, and we welcome input from the Working Group.
Feel free to invite relevant acquaintances.
In an effort to involve more students, we encourage you to invite one of your most promising students to attend.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org . Admission is limited.
