SYNOPSIS

Curious about computational creativity research? Here comes a unique opportunity to learn more about this field from top scientists and engineers.

Computational creativity is the art, science, philosophy and engineering of computational systems, which, by taking on particular responsibilities, exhibit behaviors that unbiased observers would deem to be creative. As a field of research, this area is thriving, with progress in formalizing what it means for software to be creative, along with many exciting and valuable applications of creative software in the sciences, the arts, literature, gaming, and elsewhere.


The ICCC conference series organized by the Association for Computational Creativity since 2010 is the only scientific conference that focuses on computational creativity alone and also covers all aspects of it.

ICCC’20 will take place on September 7 – 11, 2020, Fully ONLINE.

Here is the PROGRAM of the conference.

You can also REGISTER HERE.

Early registration deadline - August 31, 2020.

The conference’s main goals are to provide a space where researchers from across the world can meet to debate ideas, hear about novel approaches to the study of creativity, build partnerships, and start collaborations that explore interdisciplinary opportunities.

The proceedings of its past conferences can be downloaded from the Association’s web page, www.computationalcreativity.net.

For more elaborate information about the field of computational creativity you might also be interested in the book “Computational Creativity. The Philosophy and Engineering of Autonomously Creative Systems” edited by Tony Veale and F. Amilcar Cardoso (Springer, 2019)

Here is an excerpt from the book:

"Creativity is a long-cherished and widely studied aspect of human behavior that allows us to reinvent the familiar and to imagine the new. Computational Creativity (CC) is a recent but burgeoning area of creativity research that brings together academics and practitioners from diverse disciplines, genres and modalities, to explore the potential of our machines to be creative in their own right. As a scientific endeavor, CC proposes that computational modeling can yield important insights into the fundamental capabilities of both humans and machines. As an engineering endeavor, CC claims that it is possible to construct autonomous systems that produce novel and useful outputs that are deserving of the label “creative.” The CC field seeks to establish a symbiotic relationship between these scientific and engineering endeavors, wherein the artifacts that are produced also serve as empirical tests of the adequacy of scientific theories of creativity. We argue that, if sufficiently nurtured by volumes such as this, the products of CC research can have a significant impact on many aspects of modern life, with real consequences for the worlds of entertainment, culture, science, education, design, and art." - 'Systematizing Creativity: A Computational View' by Tony Veale, Amilcar Cardoso, Rafael Pérez y Pérez in Computational Creativity. The Philosophy and Engineering of Autonomously Creative Systems” edited by Tony Veale and F. Amilcar Cardoso (Springer, 2019), p.1.
