ICCC X - First International Conference on Computational Creativity

? metrics, frameworks and formalizations for the evaluation of creativity in computational systems;

? perspectives on creativity, including philosophy of computational creativity, models of human behavior, intelligent systems, and creativity-support tools;
? the role of creativity in learning, innovation, improvisation, and other pursuits;
? factors that enhance creativity, including conflict, diversity, knowledge, intuition, reward structures, and technologies;
? social aspects of creativity, including the relationship between individual and social creativity, diffusion of ideas, collaboration and creativity, formation of creative teams, and simulating creativity in social settings;
? specific applications to music, language and the arts, to architecture and design, to scientific discovery, to education and to entertainment;
? detailed system descriptions of creative systems, including engineering difficulties faced, example sessions and artefacts produced, and applications of the system.
The conference will include traditional paper presentations, will showcase the application of computational creativity to the sciences, creative industries and arts, and will incorporate a "show and tell" session, which will be devoted to demonstrations of computational systems exhibiting behaviour which would be deemed creative in humans.  In addition the conference will provide a forum for identifying trends and opportunities for research on [computational] creativity and promising practices concerning the development of creative computational systems.
