DEADLINE EXTENDED to January 11, 2013.

Creativity refers to human processes that underpin sublime forms of
expression and fuel innovation. A 2005 NSF workshop saw development and
evaluation of creativity support tools as a new field. By now, researchers
have developed sophisticated methods. Creativity support environments
(CSEs) address diverse areas, including software, hardware, embodied
interfaces, instrumented spaces, networked topologies, and mobile devices.
CSEs may involve temporal-spatial dimensions of collaborative work,
requiring evaluation methods addressing synchronous, asynchronous,
co-located, and distributed interaction. They may involve everyday

We will gather a community of researchers developing and evaluating CSEs,
to share approaches and develop best practices. We seek papers that develop
in-depth methods for CSE evaluation. Methods must be explained with
sufficient clarity and detail that others can apply them. They should be
grounded through study of particular CSEs. Authors should motivate the
types of CSEs for which a particular evaluation method is well suited.

The workshop will coalesce community involved in developing these methods,
inspiring discussion and debate about the value of particular methods in
situated contexts. The outcome will not be a single prescription, but
rather an ontology of methodologies, with consideration of how each maps to
creative activities, and an emerging consensus on the range of expectations
for rigorous evaluation of CSEs.

Papers should be 2-4 pages (CHI Archive Format). The best will be invited
for presentation.
