Call for Participation
ACM Creativity and Cognition, Glasgow
Deadline for poster, demonstrations and workshop submission: Extended
13th March 2015
Creativity and Cognition 2015 invites papers, posters, demonstrations
workshops and Artworks investigating how interactive computing systems
and sociotechnical processes affect creativity. We cherish creativity as
a wonderful aspect of human experience, transformative and potentially
transcendental. Creativity is the partner of inspiration, of moments
when we seem to go beyond ourselves to reach new heights. Creativity is
the font of innovation.
Cognition papers address the impact of computing on individual creative
experiences, as well as social and collaborative contexts. In all
cases, we seek for the presentation of work to include forms of
validation featuring data about people, in order to show how computing
environments impact human creativity. The data can take many forms,
including qualitative, quantitative, and sensory. Creativity and
Cognition 2015 will present papers addressing: (1) creativity support
environments, (2) studies of technology, people, and creativity, and (3)
creative works that utilize computing to engage, stimulate, and provoke
research on the impact of computing on creativity not as a fledgling
field, in which methodologies are unknown and uncertain, but rather as
having reached a relatively mature state, in which various diverse
methodologies have been developed and applied. Methodologies and
theories, while perpetually under development, are already quite viable.
As in the CHI
conference, reviewers will be asked to focus on the significance of the
submission’s contribution, originality and validity, the quality of the
presentation, and the benefit others can gain from its results.
Creativity and Cognition 2015 invites high-quality research papers,
posters, and demonstrations addressing innovative:
