 Seeding Creativity: Tools, Media, and Environments

 June 13-15, 2007    Washington DC, USA

 Sponsored by ACM SIGCHI
 Industry Sponsors include IBM, Microsoft, SAP and Google

 Submission deadline: December 15, 2006
 Author notification: February 19, 2007
 Final formatted papers due: March 19, 2007

 We cordially invite submissions to the 6th Creativity and Cognition
 Conference (CC2007), sponsored by ACM SIGCHI. Following the success
 of the previous conferences, this meeting will serve as a forum for
 focusing on creativity support tools for individual and group
 creativity, bridging among technology, science and arts to find common
 themes for user interface and new media design, and producing rigorous
 research with innovative designs and carefully conceived evaluations.

 We welcome contributions from researchers, developers, practitioners,
 and policy-makers in many fields, including: computer and information
 scientists; diverse scientists, engineers, and architects; product,
 graphic, and interaction designers; writers, musicians, and new media
 artists; creative practitioners, corporate leaders, and educators;
 social scientists, ethnographers, and anthropologists.

 The conference will feature two elegant evening receptions at the
 National Academy of Sciences and Corcoran Gallery of Art to celebrate
 the dialogue among technology, science, and arts.

 The general focus of the conference is about cultivating and sustaining
 creativity: understanding how to design and evaluate computational
 support tools, digital media, and sociotechnical environments that not
 only empower our creative process and abilities, but also encourage and
 nurture creative mindsets and lifestyles. Topics appropriate for
 submissions include, but are not limited to:

 - Principles for interface, interaction & software design
 - Empirical evaluations by quantitative and qualitative methods
 - In-depth case studies and ethnographic analyses
 - Reflective accounts of individual and collaborative practice
 - Educational and training methods to encourage creativity with novel
 - Social mechanisms in support of creative communities and
 - Emerging technologies, media, and approaches in the arts and creative
 - Transdisciplinary methods and collaboration models

 See the conference website ( for
 details and instructions on how to prepare a submission.

 Co-Chairs: Gerhard Fischer, Mike Eisenberg & Elisa Giaccardi,
 University of Colorado, Boulder, USA
Conference themes include: 1) Cultivating creative minds;
2) Sustaining creative communities; 3) Promoting creative engagement.

 Chair: Linda Candy, University of Technology Sydney, Australia We
 invite proposals for demonstrations and posters of support tools and
 works that contribute to our understanding of creativity and how
 digital media can enhance the realization of creative forms. People in
 the early stages of their careers or research programs are especially
 welcome to submit.

 Chair: Michael Terry, University of Waterloo, Canada New developments
 often benefit from being presented, discussed, demonstrated, and
 generally questioned in more informal settings. The workshops portion
 of the conference provides just such a venue for the dynamic exchange
 of new ideas, creations, and discoveries.

 Co-Chairs: Mary Czerwinski, Microsoft Research & Jim Hollan, University
 of California, San Diego, USA The objective of the symposium is to
 provide a supportive setting for feedback on graduate students' current
 work and guidance on future directions. Student participants will meet
 and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced
 researchers and practitioners.

 Chair: Tom Hewett, Drexel University, USA We invite proposals to offer a
 half or full day tutorial relevant to any of the conference themes and
 topics.  Criteria for selection of tutorials will emphasize the
 perceived value of the tutorial in enabling members of the various
 communities of interest to learn about work in one or more of the other
 communities of interest. Presenters will receive an honorarium.

 Chair: Pamela Jennings, Carnegie Mellon University, USA The art
 exhibition program will complement the conference themes by celebrating
 the open-ended creative processes that bridge the arts and sciences
 emphasizing shared visions of innovation between the digital media
 arts, computer science, human computer interaction and engineering

 As with prior meetings, the Creativity & Cognition Conference
 Proceedings will be published by ACM Press. Prizes for the best
 contributions will be awarded by the Creativity & Cognition Studios
 of the University of Technology, Sydney.
