C&C 2019 : ACM Creativity and Cognition
Call For Papers
ACM Creativity & Cognition 2019 invites papers, pictorials, posters, demonstrations, workshops, artworks, and graduate student symposium submissions investigating how interactive computing systems and socio-technical processes affect creativity. Of particular interest are contributions that relate to this year’s conference theme: Transformational Creativity.
The theme highlights how human and computational aspects of creativity can beneficially impact our communities and cultures, and how human experience impacts and is impacted by processes of creatively forming and solving problems, designing spaces, and building new possibilities.
We invite submissions that address any and all human senses, including visual, sonic, tangible, olfactory, and somaesthetic modalities. We invite new approaches to and forms of data, such as first person and visual methods, and text analysis, as well as qualitative and quantitative data methodologies typically employed in human-computer interaction research.
All deadlines are specified as Anywhere on Earth time (11:59 PM UTC)
Dates for Papers, Pictorials, Artworks, Workshops
Abstract & Title Submission Due: February 5th, 2019 (papers only)

Camera-Ready Deadline: May 2nd, 2019
Papers should address the impact of design and technology on individual creative experiences as well as social and collaborative contexts. In all cases, we seek submissions that attempt to validate key contributions and feature data about how technology affects human creativity. Papers can be 4-10 pages with additional pages allowed for citations.
Pictorials (submissions up to 12 pages) should communicate a compelling narrative in which visual components (e.g. sketches, illustrations, renderings, diagrams, photographs, annotated photographs, collages) are foregrounded as key elements of the contribution.
Artworks submissions should describe an artwork, installation, composition, or performance to be presented at UC San Diego galleries and performance spaces as a capstone event for both C&C and DIS on Tuesday night. More details on the gallery space and venues will be available in the Art Show CfP (coming soon).
Posters (submissions up to 6 pages) should highlight early-stage research results that show promise for maturing into a future paper submission.
Demonstrations (submissions up to 4 pages) should present novel socio-technical systems, digital or online tools, and/or interactive environments that aim to enable, enhance, or otherwise benefit creative experiences. Ideally, the demonstration should elicit hands-on experiences for the conference attendees.
Workshops (submissions up to 5 pages) should bring together researchers, across disciplines, to debate, disseminate, and advance the theory and practice of topics relevant to the conference. Workshops should further the formation of community. Specifying actionable outcomes would be beneficial
Graduate Symposium (submissions up to 4 pages) is open to students in a doctoral research program or a masters-level program in arts and design. Submissions should communicate current research / design progress and a planned direction of work relevant to the conference, and how the student will benefit from guidance provided by peers and senior colleagues.
