THE CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

ALL THERE IS TO KNOW

RELEVANT TOPICS AND AUDIENCE

The targeted audience for the workshop are researchers associated with the fields working in the development of computational models for creativity, concept formation, concept discovery, idea generation, and their overall relation and role to general intelligence. Furthermore, researchers coming from application areas, like computer-aided innovation (CAI) are welcome to submit papers for this workshop.

We invite papers that make a scientific contribution to the fields of computational creativity, idea generation and/or artificial general intelligence, with possible topics ranging from theoretical studies of human creativity, inventive capacities and intelligence (that in some way propose a computational model for the respective capability), through more practical contributions reporting on creative, inventive or generally intelligent computer systems (we particularly welcome implementations offering general or at least multiple sorts of results) and studies of systems and software supporting and/or guiding humans in the creative or inventive act, to application-based reports from fields like design, architecture or arts. Submissions connecting to several of the aforementioned topics are highly encouraged and welcome.

Due to the open nature of the targeted topics, we hope for contributions from a broad variety of subdisciplines within AI. Relevant keywords include but are not limited to following high-level areas:

SUBMISSION

Anybody with an interest in the questions raised above is invited to submit a research or position paper as basis for discussions during the workshop.
Submissions should be sent to Tarek R. Besold (c3gi @ cogsci . uos . de).
Accepted papers will be published online in the ''Publication Series of the Institute of Cognitive Science`` (PICS, ISSN 1610-5389), a scientific series from the Institute of Cognitive Science, University of Osnabrueck, unless the authors instruct us otherwise.
Authors are invited to submit an expanded full paper version of their workshop submission to a post-workshop review process, leading to a journal special issue on future directions for creativity, idea generation, and general intelligence.
