FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: AISB Symposium on Computational Creativity, AISB-50, April 1-4 2014, Goldsmiths, London, UK

http://doc.gold.ac.uk/~map01mm/CC2014/


OVERVIEW:
 In recent years the field of computational creativity has received growing attention from a
 widening range of researchers, motivated by a sense that work in the area has broad
 interdisciplinary implications. The contributions of philosophers, cognitive psychologists,
 computer scientists, and artists are increasingly pointing to an open question: what would
 it take to convince a critical observer that a computational agent is behaving creatively?
 Some argue a machine is creative if it simulates or replicates human creativity, suggesting,
 for instance, evaluation of AI systems via a Turing-style test. Others have conceived of
 computational creativity as an inherently different discipline, where computer generated
 (art)work should not be judged in the same terms as traditional output, i.e. as being
 necessarily producible by a human artist, or as having similar attributes to human art.
 This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss recent
 technical and philosophical developments in the field, in order to assess the future of our
 relationship with computers and the way we perceive them.
 

TOPICS OF INTEREST:
 Novel systems and theories in computational creativity, in any domain, e.g. drawing
 and painting, music, storytelling, poetry, games, etc
 The evaluation of computational creative systems, processes and artefacts
 Theory of computational aesthetics
 Representational issues in creativity, including visual and perceptual
 representations
 Social aspects of computational creativity, and intellectual property issues
 Creative autonomy and constraint
 Computational appreciation of artefacts, including human artwork
