CREATIVITY & COGNITION 2007
Deadline for reduced hotel rates extended to May 22, 2007.
Tutorials, workshops and main conference still have spaces.

Join us at Creativity & Cognition 2007 in Washington DC, June 13-15.
http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/CC2007/

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.

CONFERENCE EVENTS
Plan your time to participate in the conference opening reception on 
Wednesday June 13, 2007 at 6pm at the National Academy where our three 
month Art Exhibit will open and we will have a prestigious panel (Rita 
Colwell, Sara Diamond, Paul Greenhalgh, and William Wulf) discussion on 
Bridging Art and Science with Creativity Support Tools.  
 
Our second conference event on Thursday June 14, 2007 will begin with a 
light reception at the Jurys Hotel followed by a visit to the Corcoran 
Gallery of Art to visit the exhibit Modernism: Designing a New World 
1914-1939.  
                 
The main conference is Thursday and Friday June 14-15, 2007, at the 
Jurys Hotel. Join us for the Papers and Demos, with opening and closing 
Keynote Speakers Mitchell Resnick and Thecla Schiphorst.

We expect this to be an enjoyable, fascinating and influential event.
