CALL FOR PAPERS: Encoding Altruism: The Art and Science of Interstellar Message Composition

On March 23-24, 2003, the second in a series of international workshops on interstellar message design will be held in Paris. The workshop will focus on two broad themes: first, the interface of art, science, and technology in interstellar message design; and second, how to communicate concepts of altruism in interstellar messages. Papers addressing other topics related to interstellar message construction will be considered on a space available basis.

For detailed information about the workshops, see http://publish.seti.org/art_science/2003.

Participation is by invitation only.

Each potential participant should send a 200-word abstract of his/her proposed paper and either a c.v./resume or a URL describing professional background to altruism@seti.org no later than December 1, 2002. The workshop is sponsored by The SETI Institute; Leonardo/OLATS (Leonardo Observatory for the Arts and TechnoSciences); The John Templeton Foundation; The International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology; and The International Academy of Astronautics Permanent SETI Study Group.
