CREATIVITY & COGNITION 2007
Deadline for reduced hotel rates extended to May 22, 2007.
Tutorials, workshops and main conference still have spaces.
Join us at Creativity & Cognition 2007 in Washington DC, June 13-15.
Creativity & Cognition 2007 is focused on theme of cultivating and
sustaining creativity: understanding how to design and evaluate
computational support tools, digital media, and socio-technical
environments that not only empower our creative processes and abilities,
but that also encourage and nurture creative mindsets and lifestyles.
The Creativity & Cognition Conference series began in 1993 and has
evolved into a lively multidisciplinary event combining research and
practice. Rigorous research is expanding as theoretic foundations are
emerging and goals become more well-defined. Successful practice
manifests itself in a growing array of creativity support tools for
discovery and composition by software and other engineers, diverse
scientists, product and graphic designers, architects, new media
artists, musicians, educators, students, and many others. We believe
that deeper understanding of creative processes and improved support
tools can make more people more creative more of the time.
Plan your time to participate in the conference opening reception on
Wednesday June 13, 2007 at 6pm at the National Academy where our three
month Art Exhibit will open and we will have a prestigious panel (Rita
Colwell, Sara Diamond, Paul Greenhalgh, and William Wulf) discussion on
Bridging Art and Science with Creativity Support Tools.
Our second conference event on Thursday June 14, 2007 will begin with a
light reception at the Jurys Hotel followed by a visit to the Corcoran
Gallery of Art to visit the exhibit Modernism: Designing a New World
1914-1939. The main conference is Thursday and Friday
June 14-15, 2007, at the Jurys Hotel. Join us for the Papers and Demos,
with opening and closing Keynote Speakers Mitchell Resnick and Thecla
We expect this to be an enjoyable, fascinating and influential event.
