CfP: 2nd International Conference on Computational Creativity

Thu 22nd Jul, 2010

A Call for Papers has been issued for ICCC-11, the 2nd International Conference on Computational Creativity, to be held from April 27-29, 2011 in Mexico City, Mexico:
http://iccc11.cua.uam.mx

Original contributions are solicited in all areas related to Computational Creativity, including but not limited to:

  1. computational paradigms for understanding creativity, including heuristic search, analogical  and meta-level reasoning, and re-representation;
  2. metrics, frameworks and formalizations for the evaluation of creativity in computational systems, note: quasi-formal approaches that, for example, argue for recognition without definition or that define the absence of creativity may have interesting implications for computational creativity);
  3. perspectives on computational creativity, including philosophy, models of cognition and human behavior, and intelligent systems;
  4. development and assessment of computational creativity-support tools;
  5. creativity-oriented computing in learning, teaching, and other aspects of education;
  6. innovation, improvisation and related pursuits investigating the production of novel experiences and artifacts within a computational framework;
  7. computational accounts of factors that enhance creativity, including emotion, surprise, unexpectedness), conflict, diversity, motivation, knowledge, intuition, reward structures, and technologies, e.g. modeling, simulation, human-in-the-loop, human/machine collaboration, etc.);
  8. computational treatment of social aspects of creativity, including the relationship between individual and social creativity, diffusion of ideas, collaboration and creativity, formation of creative teams, and creativity in social settings, e.g. modeling, simulation, human-in-the-loop, human/machine collaboration, etc.);
  9. specific applications, with a computational component) to music, language, narrative, poetry, the arts, architecture, entertainment, mathematical and scientific discovery, programming and/or design;
  10. detailed system descriptions of creative systems, including engineering difficulties faced, example sessions and artifacts produced, and applications of the system;
  11. domain-specific vs. generalized creativity -- does the domain of study affect, the perception of) creativity?  Are there general, computational) creative principles that can be applied across domains?


PAPERS

We invite papers that make a scientific contribution to the field of computational creativity and report work that involves computation, e.g., fully autonomous systems, modeling, support for human creativity, simulation, human/machine collaboration, etc.).

We welcome studies of human creativity that in some way propose a computational model for that creativity.

When papers report on creative computer systems, we particularly encourage them to discuss systems having general or at least multiple sorts of results, to detail the methods used to design and develop the system, or to include useful related theoretical discussion.

We invite papers that go beyond simply documenting interesting systems to describe advances in cognitive science, assessment methods, design methods, or other research areas.


DEMOS/ARTS SHOW AND TELL

We invite proposals for demonstrations of computational systems exhibiting behavior that would be deemed creative in humans and for the exhibition of artifacts created using computational means, either primarily or as support for a human creator).
