Submissions for technical papers, pictorials, and workshops are now open!

ACM Creativity and Cognition 2017<>

June 25 to June 29, 2017 in Singapore

We invite papers, pictorials, workshops, posters, demos, artworks, and graduate student symposium submissions investigating how interactive computing systems and socio-technical processes affect creativity. Of particular interest are contributions that relate to this year's conference theme: Lifelong Creativity, Learning, and Innovation. The theme reflects our belief that creativity is a lifelong pursuit rather than a transient goal. 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.

Submission Types

Papers submissions<> should address the impact of design and technology on individual creative experiences as well as social and collaborative contexts. In all cases, we seek submissions that attempt to validate key contributions and feature data about how technology affects human creativity. Papers can of two categories: full papers (up to 10 pages) or notes (up to 4 pages). Both will be presented at the conference. Notes will receive half as much presentation time.

Pictorials submissions<> (up to 12 pages) should communicate a compelling narrative in which the visual components (e.g. sketches, illustrations, renderings, diagrams, photographs, annotated photographs, collages) are foregrounded as the most important part of the contribution.

Workshop submissions<> (up to 5 pages) should bring together scholars across disciplines to debate, disseminate, and advance the theory and practice of topics relevant to the conference.

Poster submissions<> (up to 4 pages) should highlight early stage research results that show promise for maturing into a future paper submission.

Technology demonstration submissions<> (up to 2 pages) should demonstrate novel socio-technical systems, digital or online tools, or interactive environments that aim to enable, enhance, or otherwise benefit creative experiences. Ideally, the demonstration should invite hands-on experiences for the conference attendees.

Artwork submissions<> (up to 2 pages) should describe an artwork, installation, composition, or performance to be presented in conjunction with the conference.

Graduate student symposium submissions<> (up to 4 pages) are limited to students in a doctoral research program or masters-level program in the arts and design. Submissions should communicate current research / design progress and a planned direction of work relevant to the conference, and how the student will benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior colleagues.

All submissions will be reviewed independently. For example, if authors would like to present both a paper and a technology demonstration, the authors need to make two separate submissions, one for papers and for demonstrations, as described in the respective calls. All page limits listed in the calls exclude references.
