An ACM SIGCHI International Conference
Call For Participation

In October 1999,  Creativity and Cognition 3, an ACM SIGCHI Conference,
will take place at Burleigh Court, Loughborough University in Loughborough,
England. The first Creativity and Cognition Symposium was held at
Loughborough in 1993.  It was a highly successful and internationally
acclaimed event.  Creativity and Cognition 2 in 1996, continued the initial
aim of creating opportunities for artists, composers, and scientists to
engage in a dialogue about their ideas, and working practices.  The third
conference will be an ACM SIGCHI event.  Its main focus will be on artists,
composers, technologists, and scientists working in collaborative

Invited Speakers: Marvin Minsky, leading scientist, founding pioneer of
Artificial Intelligence, and author of "The Society of Mind"; Harold Cohen,

science have influenced or informed one another.  Collaborative
explorations which have, in some way, moved beyond the existing technology
