CALL FOR PAPERS

ICCC X - First International Conference on Computational Creativity

Lisbon, Portugal - 7 - 9 January 2010

http://plone.dei.uc.pt:8888/icccx/

Original contributions are solicited in all areas related to  
Computational Creativity, including but not limited to:

	• computational paradigms for understanding creativity, including  
heuristic search, analogical reasoning, and re-representation;
	• metrics, frameworks and formalizations for the evaluation of  
creativity in computational systems;
	• perspectives on creativity, including philosophy of computational  
creativity, models of human behavior, intelligent systems, and  
creativity-support tools;
	• the role of creativity in learning, innovation, improvisation, and  
other pursuits;
	• factors that enhance creativity, including conflict, diversity,  
knowledge, intuition, reward structures, and technologies;
	• social aspects of creativity, including the relationship between  
individual and social creativity, diffusion of ideas, collaboration  
and creativity, formation of creative teams, and simulating creativity  
in social settings;
	• specific applications to music, language and the arts, to  
architecture and design, to scientific discovery, to education and to  
entertainment;
	• detailed system descriptions of creative systems, including  
engineering difficulties faced, example sessions and artefacts  
produced, and applications of the system.

The conference will include traditional paper presentations, will  
showcase the application of computational creativity to the sciences,  
creative industries and arts, and will incorporate a "show and tell"  
session, which will be devoted to demonstrations of computational  
systems exhibiting behaviour which would be deemed creative in  
humans.  In addition the conference will provide a forum for  
identifying trends and opportunities for research on [computational]  
creativity and promising practices concerning the development of  
creative computational systems.
