The 13th ACM conference on Creativity & Cognition<> will be held in Venice, Italy on the Isola San Servolo on June 21-24, 2021. Conference website:  In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the event is expected to take place face-to-face and/or through virtual participation if needed.

C&C brings together artists, scientists, designers, educators, and researchers to more deeply understand how people engage individually and socially in creative processes and how computation and other technology can affect creative outcomes.

C&C 2021 invites papers<>, pictorials<>, artworks<>, workshops<> and tutorials<> as well as posters<>, demonstrations<> 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: Creativity, Craft and Design. Venice and the Veneto are renowned for the development and retention of craft design skills in glass, furniture, fashion, printing, and architecture. The city’s cultural and creative industries are increasingly influential at the intersections of creativity, innovation, design, and marketing. To reflect this location, the C&C 2021 conference is especially seeking contributions that explore the intersections of creativity, craft, and design.

Conference Topics

We welcome high-quality submissions on a range of topics including, but not limited to:

  *   Creativity in the face of global pandemic
