Early registration is open until May 12 for Creativity & Cognition 
Room is also still available in our workshops and tutorials*

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.
