GLOBAL WARNING Symposium Recap

Leonardo/ISAST thanks the speakers, sponsors, partners and audience participants who helped make the GLOBAL WARNING: Artists, Scientists and Environmental Activism Symposium a success. The symposium brought together practitioners from a large variety of disciplines, from scientists conducting research aimed at solving environmental crises to artists creating works that engage the public to ethicists reminding us that concern for the environment encompasses our concern for ourselves and our future as humans.

In particular we would like to thank the speakers, including: Kathleen Dean Moore, Gail Wight, Gerard Kuperus, Peter Roopnarine, Karen Holl, Marisa Jahn, Tiffany Holmes, Meredith Tromble, The Climate Clock Initiative Teams, Andrea Polli, Tim Dye, Buster Simpson, Robin Lasser, Marguerite Perret, Jade Chang; our sponsors: City of San José Office of Cultural Affairs, University of San Francisco Dean's Office of Arts and Sciences, USF Philosophy Dept, USF Environmental Science Dept, USF Art & Architecture Dept, The Journal of Global Environmental Politics, Calit2, Berkeley Center for New Media, Rachel Crawford and Marcia Tanner; and our partners in organizing the symposium.

A virtual goodie bag made for symposium participants is available on-line at with free articles on art, science and the environment, discounts and more (available through October 17, 2010).

If you were unable to attend, you can view a short recap of what transpired during the day on the Leonardo Twitter account (see sidebar for link). In the meantime, we are continuing to update the Art, Science and the Environment Resource page. If you have any suggestions of collaborations, projects or organizations working in the field to add to the list, please send them our way. Find out more

LMJ 21 Call for Papers
Beyond Notation: Communicating Music

Peer-to-peer file exchange, the iTunes store, MySpace, Pandora – by 2010 it's obvious that the Internet has radically transformed the economy and culture of selling, distributing, owning and hearing recorded music. Less discussed is the Web's impact on that part of music that used to be called "the score" – instructions, suggestions and materials for performing, rather than consuming, music. For Volume 21 of Leonardo Music Journal we solicit papers that address the impact of technological change on how we distribute instructions and materials for musical performance. Deadline for abstracts: October 15, 2010. Find out more
