Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (Leonardo/ISAST) is recognized as a global leader in the interdisciplinary world of art/science/technology. For more than 40 years, Leonardo has promoted and publicized the work of creative individuals who look beyond the barriers that separate the arts and sciences, focusing instead on the strengths that emerge from cross-fertilization among disciplines. Leonardo’s programs and activities reflect the exploding interest in this evolving field. Current explorations include projects in interactive and emerging media, encompassing both open participation and peer-review practices. Leonardo has long served as a critical resource for classroom curricula and student research through the Leonardo Educators and Students Program, which focuses on such activities and initiatives as the Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), student internships, publication discounts for students and educators, and student art/science contests. Leonardo’s working group, Leonardo Education and Art Forum (LEAF), organizes panel discussions and other activities of interest to the education and academic communities at conferences and symposia.
