Call for Papers for the 1st Workshop on Creativity and Robotics at ICSR 2020

Paper submission: October 26, 2020 AOE -- EXTENDED
Notification: October 31, 2020
Workshop dates: Nov. 14-15, 2020 (half-day workshop)

This workshop aims to bring together these lines of investigation and
debate existing challenges under the research topic of Creativity and
Robotics. The 1st Creativity and Robotics workshop will be a virtual
workshop at ICSR 2020. Our goal is to explore the creative potential a
robot offers as well as whether society will engage with such robots.

We invite papers that target creativity, robotics and the arts, design, and
engineering-related challenges: including new algorithms, systems,
methodology, datasets, evaluations, surveys, reproduced results, and
negative results.

Submissions to Creativity and Robotics Workshop at ICSR 2020 are limited to
6 pages of content (minimum 4 pages), but may contain an unlimited number
of pages for references and appendices. The latter may not necessarily be
read by the reviewers. We request and recommend that authors rely on the
supplementary material only to include minor details that do not fit in the
6 pages. The submission process is double-blind. All submissions must be
formatted with LaTeX using the ICSR 2020 paper format (

Submission: Email paper PDF to creativity dot robotics at gmail dot com

Contributions to this workshop are required to provide a clear definition
for the concept of Creativity. Additionally, contributions are expected to
discuss how their research contributes to a “common language” that advances
the holistic notion of the concept of creativity across fields.

We welcome articles currently under review or papers planned for
publication elsewhere. However, papers that have been published at another
archival conference should not be submitted. Accepted papers will be
published on the Creativity and Robotics homepage, but are to be considered

This workshop is endorsed by Frontiers via a new research topic on
“Creativity and Robotics” (website:
in Frontiers in Robotics and AI Journal launched by the organizers of this
proposed workshop. Accepted papers for this workshop will be invited to
submit to this research topic.

Todd Lubart is Professor at the University Paris Descartes where he directs
the activity of the Laboratoire Adaptations Travail Individu (LATI). He
earned his PhD from Yale University in 1994 under the supervision of Robert
Sternberg and soon after that moved to the University of Paris Descartes
where he became an Assistant Professor in 1995 and then Professor of
Psychology in 2002. He was a member of the Institut Universitaire de France

His work on creativity is extensive and includes approximately 75
publications, articles, books and book chapters covering various aspects of
the phenomenon: creative process, individual differences, role of cognition
and emotion, environmental and cultural factors, etc. His current work
develops a multivariate approach to creativity.
