[Yasmin_discussions] Whats on the Mind of the YASMIN art/science/technology community of practice ?


I thought we might launch a YASMIN discussion around emerging
topics/issues/problems/opportunities in our art science technology
community. What's been going on that's on your radar over the last few
years ?

A group of us, part of the SEAD network ( Carol Lafayette, Carol
Strohecker, Robert Thill and Yvan Tina) are currently organizing
events in Washington DC in USA the week of February 6/7. One is a
panel at the US College Art Association (Cultivating an Ecology of
Networked Knowledge and Innovation through Collaborations among
Sciences, Engineering, Arts, Design) and on 3rd February 2016, and the
other is a meeting as part of updating (details below) the SEAD report
that we developed with many Yasmin contributions and we have announced
a 'snapshot' update and are soliciting community contributions (
details below).

We will start posting on YASMIN once a day a new issue submitting by
one of our colleagues for discussion- and if you would submit your own
topic =send it to me in an email to rmalina@alum.mit.edu- format is
500 words max with some URLs.

Tell us what you are optimistic/pessimistic/excited/discouraged about
as recently emerging issues.opportunities in our art science
technology community !!

Call for 5-Year Updates: The SEAD Network is collecting input about
significant developments over the past few years and would like to
solicit your thoughts. Submission deadline: 1 November 2015.

ART-SCI-TECH in the last five years

drop me an email at: rmalina(at)alum.mit.edu

The report we published this year at MIT Press is available for free

Steps to an Ecology of Networked Knowledge and Innovation: Enabling
New Forms of Collaboration among Sciences, Engineering, Arts, and

Roger F. Malina, Carol Strohecker, and Carol LaFayette, on behalf of
SEAD network contributors

In 2012, The Network for Sciences, Engineering, Arts, and Design
(SEAD) launched a White Papers initiative to build community awareness
of perceived challenges and opportunities for transdisciplinary
collaboration across the breadth of science, engineering, art, design
and the humanities. Many YASMINERS contributed to this report ( thank
you again) The resulting study takes note of the growing international
interest and development of initiatives in universities, corporations
and civil society.This synthesis report offers a set of "action
clusters" common to texts from the international response by SEAD
members. Suggested Actions are structured according to similarities of
motivation and purpose, and addressed to specific stakeholders.

The SEAD White Papers initiative was chaired by Roger Malina and
co-chaired by Carol Strohecker, with the assistance of an
international Steering Group and coordination by Carol LaFayette and
Amy Ione, Managing Editor.

We will be submitting the updated report to interested groups
internationally for their consideration.
