CC2017 Calls for Participation
ACM Creativity and Cognition 2017 will be held in Singapore
from June 27 thru June 30, 2017. We invite papers, posters,
demos, pictorials, workshops, artworks, and graduate student
symposium submissions investigating how interactive
computing systems and sociotechnical processes affect
creativity. Of particular interest are contributions that
relate to this year’s conference theme: Lifelong
Creativity, Learning, and Innovation. The theme reflects
our belief that creativity is a lifelong pursuit rather than
a transient goal. We cherish creativity as a wonderful
aspect of human experience, transformative and potentially
transcendental. Creativity is the partner of inspiration, of
moments when we seem to go beyond ourselves to reach new
Papers, pictorials, artworks, and workshops
Posters, technology demos, and graduate student
- Submission: January 13 (extended), 2017 @ 11:59 PM UTC −12:00
- Artwork Notification: Feburary 20, 2017 (extended)
- Other Notifications: March 3, 2017
All deadlines are specified as
- Submission: March 10, 2017 @ 11:59 PM UTC −12:00
- Notification: April 10, 2017
submissions 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 of two categories: full papers (up to 10 pages)
or notes (up to 4 pages). Both will be presented at the
conference. Notes will receive half as much time.
submissions (up to 4 pages) should highlight early stage
research results that show promise for maturing into a
future paper submission.
- Technology demonstrations (up to 2 pages) should demonstrate novel socio-technical systems, digital or online tools, or interactive environments that aim to enable, enhance, or otherwise benefit creative experiences. Ideally, the demonstration should invite hands-on experiences for the conference attendees.
- Pictorials submissions
(up to 12 pages) should communicate a compelling narrative in which the
visual components (e.g. sketches, illustrations,
renderings, diagrams, photographs, annotated
photographs, collages) are foregrounded as the most
important part of the contribution.
- Workshop submissions
(up to 5 pages) should bring together scholars across disciplines to
debate, disseminate, and advance the theory and practice
of topics relevant to the conference.
- Artwork submissions
(up to 2 pages) should describe an artwork, installation,
composition, or performance to be presented in
conjunction with the conference.
- Graduate student symposium submissions (up to 4 pages) are limited to students in a doctoral research program or a masters-level program in the 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.
All submissions will be reviewed independently. Therefore,
for example, if authors would like to present both a paper
and a technology demonstration, then the authors need to
make two separate submissions, one for papers and for
demonstrations, as described in the respective calls. All page limits listed in the calls exclude references.
Authors take note: The official publication date is the date
the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital
Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first
day of your conference. The official publication date
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to
published work. (For those rare conferences whose
proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after
the conference is over, the official publication date
remains the first day of the conference.)
