Hannu Toivonen chairs the International Conference on Computational Creativity

Fri, 05.06.2015

Professor Hannu Toivonen is the Program Chair of the International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC), to be held in Park City, Utah, June 29 - July 2.

Computational Creativity is the art, science, philosophy and engineering of computational systems which, by taking on particular responsibilities, exhibit behaviours that unbiased observers would deem to be creative. The ICCC conference series has been organized annually by the Association for Computational Creativity since 2010, and was preceeded by workshops since 2004. It is the only scientific conference that focuses on computational creativity and also covers all aspects of it.

ICCC consists of presentations of papers in five categories: (1) technical papers advancing the state of art in research, (2) system and resource description papers, (3) study papers presenting enlightening novel perspectives, (4) cultural application papers presenting the usage of creative software, and (5) position papers argumenting for an opinion.

Accordingly, the papers to be presented in ICCC 2015 show a large variety of topics. As a field of research, this area is thriving, with progress in formalising what it means for software to be creative, along with many exciting and valuable applications of creative software in the sciences, the arts, literature, gaming and elsewhere.

The three-and-a-half-day conference program of ICCC 2015 consists of exciting sessions consisting of presentation of the selected papers, a keynote on interactive narrative and participatory drama by Emily Short, some additional short talks, and a rich social program. This year, the conference hosts its very first workshop – Computational Creativity & Games – taking place immediately before the main conference.
