Call Description

Papers submissions 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. The data can take many forms, including qualitative, quantitative, and sensory. Creativity and Cognition 2017 will present papers addressing: (1) creativity support environments (2) studies of technology, people, and creativity, and (3) creative works that utilize computing to engage, stimulate, and provoke human experience. As in related conferences, reviewers will be asked to focus on the significance of the submission’s contribution, originality and validity, the quality of the presentation, and the benefit others can gain from its results.


We invite high-quality research papers addressing innovative:


Submissions can be full papers (up to 10 pages) or notes (up to 4 pages); references do not count towards the page limit. Both will be presented at the conference. Notes will receive half as much time. All submissions will be made through the Precision Conference web site and must use the two-column SIGCHI template for papers and notes (linked page includes templates for both Latex and Word). Papers must be submitted in PDF. The total size of all submitted materials, including a video figure, should not exceed 100 Mb. If you are unsure of what constitutes a well-formed paper, see the many examples in the ACM Digital Library for our conference.

Where to Submit

Precision Conference web site.

Video figures (optional)

Video figures may accompany a paper submission for the purpose of review. They are strongly encouraged but not required. The CHI and UIST guides to producing video figures are useful.

Anonymization Policy

All papers must be anonymized for review. Author and affiliation sections and credits must be left blank. Authors of accepted submissions will add this information in preparation of the "camera-ready" version. We are using the ACM CHI Anonymization Policy of blind reviewing. We use a relaxed model that does not attempt to conceal all traces of identity from the body of the paper. Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper, as noted in the submission instructions (Note: changing the text color of the author information is not sufficient). Also, please make sure that identifying information does not appear in the document's meta-data (e.g., the 'Authors' field in your word processor's 'Save As' dialog box). Authors should cite their own work in the third person, e.g., avoid "As described in our previous work [10], ... " and use instead "As described by [10], ..."

Attendance Policy

At least one author of an accepted paper is required to pay the appropriate registration fee and is required to attend the conference in-person to present the work.
