Several people have asked so here it is.

We welcome submissions.

Languages of design is an international, interdisciplinary journal
devoted to research in formal languages and their use for the
synthesis of words, images, and sounds. Languages of design
welcomes articles employing linguistic techniques to generate
literary and non-literary texts, music, and visual works including
art, dance, theater, architecture and all types of design.

This multidisciplinary focus is reflected by the journal's editorial
board, which includes literary theorists, music theorists and
composers, researchers in artificial intelligence, artists,
architects, and art critics. Formal design theory, generative
grammars, shape grammars, computational musicology and
computational aesthetics are central to the subjects covered
by the journal. More general subject areas, such as formal
languages, finite state automata, grammatical inference, pattern
recognition, cellular automata, semantic networks, connectionism,
and syntactical analysis are discussed in the context of their
application to productive systems. Specific analytic perspectives,
such as syntactics, semiotics, deconstruction, hermeneutics,
stylistics, narratology, philology, morphology, prosody, harmony
theory, formal musicology, and performance analysis will be
presented in terms of their impact and influence on a theoretical
foundation for productive systems.

Research results from visual, audio and textual analyses that may
have an impact on the arts are also invited. Of particular interest
is research utilizing computational methods to verify theoretical
formal analysis. Articles criticizing the assumptions and results
of this work are also welcome.
