<nettime-ann> call for papers: 3rd AISB Symposium on Computational Creativity


DEADLINE: January 14, 2016
NOTIFICATION: February 10, 2016
SYMPOSIUM: April 4, 2016
CONFERENCE: April 4-6, 2016
LOCATION: University of Sheffield

INVITED SPEAKER: Prof. Margaret Boden (University of Sussex)

OVERVIEW: Over the last few decades, computational creativity has attracted an increasing
number of researchers from both arts and science backgrounds. Philosophers,
cognitive psychologists, computer scientists and artists have all contributed to
and enriched the literature.

Many argue a machine is creative if it simulates or replicates human creativity
(e.g.  evaluation of AI systems  via  a Turing-style  test), while  others  have
conceived of computational creativity as an inherently different discipline, where
computer generated (art)work should not be judged on the same terms, i.e. being
necessarily producible by a human artist, or having similar attributes, etc. This
symposium aims at bringing together researchers to discuss recent technical and
philosophical developments in the field, and the impact of this research on the
future of our relationship with computers and the way we perceive them: at the
individual level where we interact with the machines, the social level where we
interact with each other via computers, or even with machines interacting with
each other.


- Novel systems and theories in computational creativity, in any domain, e.g. drawing and painting, music, story telling, poetry, games, etc.

- The evaluation of computational creative systems, processes and artifacts

- 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 artifacts, including human artwork

AWARDS: Taylor & Francis' CRC Press book vouchers will be given to the best student paper (£50) and the best paper from all the submissions (£100).
