CFP: ACM Creativity and Cognition 2013, 2nd Call for Demonstrations and Graduate Student Symposium

*** 2nd Call for DEMONSTRATIONS ***

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


1st March 2013 for Demonstrations
1st March 2013 for 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.

*** 2nd Call for DEMONSTRATIONS ****

Submissions due: 1st March, 2013

ACM Creativity and Cognition is calling for Demonstration papers to be submitted. Demonstrations are papers which demonstrate a new process or technology to do with the conference topics and which benefit from a presentation context that is interactive, hands-on and conversational. They will be presented primarily in conjunction with the poster presentations.

All Demonstration submissions are to be anonymised, limited to 2 pages, and presented in SIGCHI format, for which templates can be found on the Submission page of the conference website:

General topics for Demonstrations 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.

Submission Method: Easychair – see 'Submission' webpage 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.

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.
