The Program Committee of the 4th International Joint Workshop on
Computational Creativity invites submissions of technical and
position papers.  The workshop will be held at Goldsmiths,
University of London, UK, on 17-19 June 2007.

Workshop Objectives
The aim of the workshop is to facilitate the exchange of ideas on
the topic of computational creativity. We aim to bring together
people from AI, Cognitive Science and related areas such as
Psychology, Philosophy and the Arts who research questions related
to the notion of creativity with respect to computers. The workshop
will address issues such as how we assess creativity in computers,
how computers can be used to enhance human creativity, and how we
can write creative software. We aim for papers on various frameworks
for computational creativity to be presented at the workshop, and
for the applications of computational creativity to the sciences,
creative industries and arts to be showcased. The workshop will
provide a forum for identifying trends and opportunities for research
on creativity and promising practices concerning the development of
creative systems. In addition, we will organise a "show and tell"
session, which will be devoted to demonstrations of systems exhibiting
behaviour which would be deemed creative in humans.

Original contributions are solicited in all areas related to Creative
Systems, including but not limited to:
 - Computational models of creativity
 - Cognitive models of creativity
 - Metrics, frameworks and formalizations for the evaluation of
	creativity in computational systems
 - Computational tools for supporting creativity
 - Specific applications to music, language and the arts, to
	architecture and design, to scientific discovery, to education
	and to entertainment
 - Philosophical discussions of computational creativity
 - Detailed system descriptions of creative systems, including
	engineering difficulties faced, example sessions and artefacts
	produced, and applications of the system

Important Dates
March 17, 2007   Submission deadline
April 21, 2007   Authors' Notification
May   19, 2007   Deadline for final camera-ready copies

Submission Requirements
Authors should produce their papers according to the LaTeX format
which will be posted shortly on the workshop web site. Papers should
be no longer than eight pages; longer papers will not be reviewed. All
submissions will be reviewed in terms of quality, impact and relevance
to the area of computational creativity.

Contributions will be subject to anonymous, blind peer review:
reviewers will not be aware of the identities of the authors. This
requires that authors exercise some care not to identify themselves
in their contributions. Authors will receive feedback in the form of
reviewers' comments.

All Submissions will be made by electronic means, in postscript or PDF
format. Detailed instructions about the submission procedure will be
available on the workshop web site soon.

Previous events

This workshop is the first completely autonomous edition of the series
of International Joint Workshops on Computational Creativity that were
held in association with other major events:

IJWCC 2004, Madrid, Spain, ECCBR'2004
IJWCC 2005, Edinburgh, UK, IJCAI'2005
IJWCC 2006, Riva del Garda, Italy, ECAI'2006
This joint series results from two previous streams of events that
have, since 1997, solidified and added rigour to the computational
treatment of creative processes. These events have been symposia and
workshops associated with AISB 99, AISB 00, ICCBR 01, AISB 01, ECAI 02,
AISB 02, IJCAI 03, AISB 03 and LREC 04.
