>Biological and algorithmic, protector of secrets and porthole to
>mysteries, universal and singular, code is an invitation to thought.
>Code can be "wet" (genetic, organic, human), "dry" (digital,
>mathematical, logical), something in-between, neither, or both
>(linguistic, symbolic, religious, moral, legal). Code is the meeting
>ground of strange bedfellows, the cipherer and decipherer, the domain of
>law and its subversion, communication and privacy. Code is about
>patterns, sequences, systems, translations, substitutions. It can bind,
>trick, and free. Modern technologies are affording us more and more keys
>to unlock nature's code and more opportunities to manipulate it.
>
>**We welcome paper and panel submissions that explore any
>type/aspect/nature/culture of code in any period of history.  Also
>welcome are submissions on any aspect of science's relationship with
>literature and the arts, including ones presented in nontraditional
>formats (such as film/video, performance, music, or visual art).**
