ACM Creativity and Cognition Conference 2019

June 23, 2019 - June 26, 2019

The 12th conference on Creativity & Cognition will be located in San Diego, CA at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay on June 23-26, 2019. Since 1993, this conference series brings together artists, scientists, designers, educators, and researchers to more deeply understand how people engage individually and socially in creative processes and how computation and other technology can affect creative outcomes. Creativity involves the generation, exploration, and interpretation of novel and valuable ideas, and spans a wide variety of fields, including the humanities, social sciences, engineering, art, design, choreography, computer science, psychology, and education. C&C 2019 invites contributions in typical research formats — papers, posters, demos, workshops–and in more sensory, experiential forms–pictorials and artworks. See the call for participation for more details.

The theme for C&C 2019 highlights the transformational impact that human and computational aspects of creativity can have on our communities and cultures. In an increasingly digital world, we seek to design interactive techniques and tools that mindfully and ethically augment and amplify human creativity for social good across all human endeavors. To support this theme, C&C will be co-located with the conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS 2019). The conferences will host a shared Art Show event and one-full day of conference programming to support dialogue between the two overlapping communities.

Technical Program
The 12th Creativity and Cognition technical program includes three days of research presentations. The third day will overlap with DIS 2019, and attendees will have a chance to attend participate in joint conference papers, panels, and other activities.
