ACM Creativity and Cognition 2013
17th-20th June, 2013, Sydney, Australia.
University of Technology, Sydney


17th December 2012 for Papers and Posters
1st March 2013 for Demos and Graduate Student Symposium

The University of Technology, Sydney will host the International Conference on Creativity and Cognition from the 17th to the 20th of June 2013. The organising committee would like to invite you to join us in Sydney for another conference in this very successful series.

For 2013 the conference theme will be ‚Intersections and Interactions‘, due to the inter-disciplinarity that is inherent in the study of creativity and cognition. June 2013 will be an exciting time for Sydney, as the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA 2013) will run from the 7th to 16th, as well as theVivid Festival of Arts from the 24th of May until the 10th of June. Also, the International Conference on Computational Creativity has been recently announced for the dates 12-14 June, 2013.

Details on submission by easychair and links to the SIGCHI template for submissions are available at:

Deadline for submission: 17th December, 2013

Submission Method: Easychair – see Submission page for details. All papers and posters will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers and posters will be published in the proceedings and will be included in the ACM Digital Library.

General topics may include, but are not limited to:

* Descriptions or case study reports of musical, artistic, literary or other forms of successful creative expression or collaboration.
* Reflections or analyses of design, artistic thinking or creative thought in general or analysis of the creative process in any medium of expression.
* Visual, auditory, tactile or multi-modal representations for creative work, e.g., technology for graphics, visualization, virtual reality and other forms of computing.
* Materials for creativity, e.g., tangible interaction for creative expression, e.g., sticky notes, electronic textiles, physical computing, new materials for creativity.
* Creation, implementation, evaluation and practical use of digital tools to support creative cognition or visualization.
* Empirical reports of design, development and deployment of platforms, tools and toolkits to support creative work in any domain.
* Models and theories of creative thinking from any perspective, e.g., cognitive, cognitive neuroscience, information-processing and computational.
* Studies of bringing creative ideas to mind: e.g., open-ended reports and explorations of idea generation, divergent thinking, and other ways of breaking up habitual modes of thought, creative problem solving or decision making.
* Empirical studies of creativity or creative cognition: e.g., cognitive study of artistic work and/or creative design methods
* Evaluation methods and/or criteria for assessing creative work by an individual, small group, or community.
* Creative information design to support communication.
* Understanding the ‚audience‘ experience and reactions to creative works, e.g., evaluation criteria, methods and tools, empirical reports on development and production of creative work by and for target audiences.
* Inter-disciplinary methods and models for creative collaboration, e.g., reports of inter-disciplinary interactions and collaboration for creativity, including discussion of what worked and what didn’t.
* Collective creativity and creative communities, e.g., collaborative cognition, the nature and role of analogies used in groups, conceptual synergy and combination, when and how group processes may actually inhibit or limit creative collaboration.
* Empirical studies of social media and computing in creativity.
* Creativity in the wild: e.g., reports of everyday personal creativity, group creativity, or the workings of online creative communities.

Creativity is sometimes thought of as being a human cognitive capacity to solve problems. Creativity is sometimes thought of as a process that occurs in the intersections between individuals, domains and fields. Creativity is sometimes viewed as a characteristic of an artifact, such as an artwork, or of a concept, such as a new scientific theory, that is both novel and valuable.

The Creativity and Cognition Conference Series aims to be a common meeting ground where individuals can interact with others from different domains and fields to explore and share a variety of information, observations, insights and ideas about the human capacity to creatively solve problems and produce novel and valuable artifacts in their context and culture.

As a single track conference the Creativity and Cognition conference series establishes a forum where people can ‚rub minds‘ with and hear about the work of others from a variety of domains and perspectives as they report and describe their engagement with that most complex of intersections–creativity and cognition.

To this end, Creativity and Cognition 2013 seeks papers, posters and demonstrations from individuals and teams of people working in any of a variety of domains who seek to improve our understanding of this multifaceted domain that engages the interest and attention of people from so many different fields.

All submissions are to be anonymised and presented in SIGCHI format, for which templates can be found on the Submission page of the conference website (http://cc13.creativityandcognition.com).

Papers are to be a maximum of 10 pages, while poster submissions are to be a maximum of 4 pages in length. Papers and posters are to be submitted by 17 Dec 2012 through the paper submission system linked to above.

Demonstrations are also invited, with a maximum of 2 pages in length, will be due on the 1st of March 2013.

Submissions due: 1st March, 2013
Notifications: 1st April, 2013
Graduate Student Symposium: 17th June 2013

The Graduate Student Symposium is a forum in which postgraduate students meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners. The Symposium itself will be held on the 17th of June, with a table for the participants to be reserved during the conference dinner. We welcome applications in any of the disciplines and approaches concerned with Creativity and Cognition (see the Call for Papers for further details on topics).

Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established direction of research relevant to Creativity and Cognition, but whose research would benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior colleagues at the Graduate Student Symposium. Each application should provide:

* A short written paper (no more than TWO pages in SIGCHI format)
* A brief letter of support from the student’s principal adviser
* A brief 2-3 paragraph biographical sketch on a separate page together with a list of any relevant publications

The paper should describe ongoing work and summarize the student’s thesis, or highlight a particular aspect – therefore it should be first-authored by the student. Advisors‘ or supervisors‘ letters of support should indicate that the work has reached the appropriate level of maturity for presentation in this venue. The letter of support and biographical sketch should be submitted together with the paper on the conference submission site. Please note that Graduate Student Symposium submission, unlike paper submission, is not anonymous. For templates, please see the conference website under Submission.

Participants will be selected based on their anticipated contributions to the breadth and depth of the intellectual discussions of the symposium. Selected students will be expected to give a short presentation of their work, followed by discussion with the panel and the other student participants.
