CFP: Call for papers for the 11th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC'20)

The 11th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC'20)
June 29 ? July 03 2020, Coimbra, Portugal
Call for papers: full regular papers
Please distribute (Apologies for cross-posting)
Computational Creativity (or CC) is a discipline with its roots in Artifici al Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Engineering, Design, Psychology and Phi losophy that explores the potential for computers to be autonomous creators in their own right. ICCC is an annual conference that welcomes papers on d ifferent aspects of CC, on systems that exhibit varying degrees of creative autonomy, on frameworks that offer greater clarity or computational felici ty for thinking about machine (and human) creativity, on methodologies for building or evaluating CC systems, on approaches to teaching CC in schools and universities or to promoting societal uptake of CC as a field and as a technology, and so on.
*** Themes and Topics *** Original research contributions are solicited in all areas related to Compu tational Creativity research and practice, including, but not limited to:
? Applications that address creativity in specific domains such as music, language, narrative, poetry, games, visual arts, graphic design, pro duct design, architecture, entertainment, education, mathematical invention , scientific discovery, and programming. ? Applications and frameworks that allow for co-creativity between humans and machines, in which the machine is more than a mere tool and take s on significant creative responsibility for itself. ? Metrics, frameworks, formalisms and methodologies for the evaluat ion of creativity in computational systems, and for the evaluation of how s ystems are perceived in society. ? Syntheses of AI/CC treatments of very different genres or domains of creativity (e.g. art and science, humour and mathematics, language and image, etc.) ? Computational paradigms for understanding creativity, including h euristic search, analogical and meta-level reasoning, and representation. ? Resource development and data gathering/knowledge curation for cr eative systems, especially resources and data collections that are scalable , extensible and freely available as open-source materials. ? Ethical considerations in the design, deployment or testing of CC systems, as well as studies that explore the societal impact of CC systems . ? Cognitive and psychological computational models of creativity, a nd their relation with existing cognitive architectures and psychological a ccounts ? Innovation, improvisation, virtuosity and related pursuits invest igating the production of novel experiences and artefacts within a CC conte xt. ? Computational accounts of factors that enhance creativity, includ ing emotion, surprise(unexpectedness), reflection, conflict, diversity, mot ivation, knowledge, intuition, reward structures. ? Computational models of social aspects of creativity, including t he relationship between individual and social creativity, diffusion of idea s, collaboration and creativity, formation of creative teams, and creativit y in social settings. ? Perspectives on computational creativity which draw from philosop hical and/or sociological studies in a context of creative intelligent syst ems. ? Computational creativity in the cloud, including how web services can be used to foster unexpected creative behaviour in computational syste ms. ? Big data approaches to computational creativity. ? Debate papers that raise new issues or reopen seemingly settled o nes. Provocations that question the foundations of the discipline or throw new light on old work are also welcome.
Papers on computational paradigms of all kinds ? from symbolic to s tatistical to deep learning models, as well as hybrid approaches ? are welcome, provided they address pertinent aspects of CC as sketched abov e.
