Papers Chairs

Call Description

Papers should focus on some aspect of creativity in individual, collaborative, and/or social contexts. We encourage submissions that address the effects of design and/or technology on the human creative experience. 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 2019 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 are asked to focus on the significance, originality and validity of the submission's contribution, on the quality of the submission's presentation, as well as on the benefits others can gain from the submission's results.


We invite high-quality research papers on topics including but not limited to:


Papers should be between 4 and 10 pages long (extra pages allowed for citations) in the two-column ACM SIGCHI format. All papers will undergo the same review process and will be published in the same way. Length must match the contribution, and the same general criteria hold for all papers. Accepted papers will be presented as a short or long talk, and presentation length will be determined according to paper length/contribution.

All submissions will be made through the Precision Conference website and must use the two-column SIGCHI Papers and Notes templates (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

Please submit via the Precision Conference (PCS) website below:

Once you have logged into the PCS website, select the following options under "Submissions" and click the Go button.

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.

Review Process

Papers follow a rigorous blind peer review process. This process is managed by the Papers Chairs and Associate Chairs (ACs). Confidentiality of submissions is maintained throughout the review process.

After abstracts are submitted, ACs will bid on the papers they are qualified to review and declare conflicts of interest. After the paper deadline, the Papers Chairs will consult the bids and assign each paper to a primary AC (1AC) as well as a secondary AC (2AC). The 1AC will find two external reviewers with relevant expertise for each of their assigned papers. Thus, each paper will be assigned two ACs (one 1AC and one 2AC) along with two external reviewers.

During the review period, external reviewers will write a detailed review of their assigned papers and assess the contribution of the research to the field. The 2AC will also write a detailed review of their assigned papers. Thus, each submitted paper will receive three detailed reviews in total.

After the reviews have been written, the 1AC for a paper will ensure scholarly content of reviews and write a meta-review of the paper that summarizes the reviews from the two external reviewers and the 2AC. The 1AC will present a recommendation for the paper’s acceptance or rejection to the Papers Chairs, who will review meta-reviews and spot-check reviews.

The Papers Chairs and ACs will meet at a virtual program committee meeting to discuss the final acceptance of papers for inclusion in the C&C 2019 program.
