This will be a special LASER event. We will convene a panel to report on the activities of a one-day workshop held at Konza Prairie on July 15th of this year. Organized by Carol Blocksome, Linda Duke, Celka Straughn, Rhonda Janke, Carlos Castellanos and others, this one day workshop/symposium served as a platform to open up a regional dialog on art-science collaboration. The panel will provide a summary of our activities and discuss future possibilities.
