      General Information
 Creativity and Cognition 2015 invites papers, posters, demonstrations 
workshops and Artworks investigating how interactive computing systems 
and sociotechnical processes affect creativity. We cherish creativity as
 a wonderful aspect of human experience, transformative and potentially 
transcendental. Creativity is the partner of inspiration, of moments 
when we seem to go beyond ourselves to reach new heights. Creativity is 
the font of innovation.    

      Creativity and
 Cognition papers address the impact of computing on individual creative
 experiences, as well as social and collaborative contexts. In all 
cases, we seek for the presentation of work to include forms of 
validation featuring data about people, in order to show how computing 
environments impact human creativity. The data can take many forms, 
including qualitative, quantitative, and sensory. Creativity and 
Cognition 2015 will present papers addressing: (1) creativity support 
environments, (2) studies of technology, people, and creativity, and (3)
 creative works that utilize computing to engage, stimulate, and provoke
 human experience.    

      We see 
research on the impact of computing on creativity not as a fledgling 
field, in which methodologies are unknown and uncertain, but rather as 
having reached a relatively mature state, in which various diverse 
methodologies have been developed and applied. Methodologies and 
theories, while perpetually under development, are already quite viable.

      As in the CHI 
conference, reviewers will be asked to focus on the significance of the 
submission’s contribution, originality and validity, the quality of the 
presentation, and the benefit others can gain from its results.    



Creativity and Cognition 2015 invites high-quality research papers,
posters, and demonstrations addressing innovative:    

 support environments that is, interactive computing systems designed to
 foster, promote, improve, and increase creative experiences, processes,
 and products.        

          Studies of how computing systems impact creativity.        

 artworks, in forms such as physical installations and online 
environments, which creatively invoke computing to provoke human 

          Virtual and mixed reality environments designed to support,
provoke, and express creativity.

          Roles for physical computing and maker/hacker culture in
creative and expressive human experiences.        

          Roles that aesthetics play in our experiences and
understandings of digital/computational environmentscomputing on creativity, such as evaluation methodologies.

fields to build new understandings of contemporary developments.
