ACM Creativity & Cognition is a multi-disciplinary conference covering a broad range of topics. The conference brings together artists and scientists, designers, educators, and researchers. We seek to understand human creativity in its many manifestations, to design new interactive techniques and tools to augment and amplify human creativity, and to use computational media technologies to explore new creative processes and artifacts in all human endeavors ranging from the arts to science, from design to education. The goal of workshops and tutorials is to foster discussions and innovative experiences via collaborations and lessons from different areas.
Organizers should plan on promoting their event amongst their own peer networks and on mailing lists. The event will also be published on the conference website. Workshop organizers are responsible for producing any publications of any workshop proceedings, if desired. Workshops and tutorials may be cancelled or combined if there is insufficient participation.
- Evaluation: Content is rigorously juried by the committee for suitability as a workshop or tutorial, and interest to the community.
- Date: Workshops and tutorials will run for a full day on Sunday June 23, 2019, which is the day before the main conference track.
- Engagement: For both workshops and tutorials, we encourage submissions which offer interactive and participatory methods, and who aim to engage the wider community in the field.
- Conference support: the conference may be able to provide financial assistance in the form of free or reduced workshop registration for the lead workshop organizer.
- Off-site Venues: Several makerspaces and design studios throughout San Diego have offered to host one-day workshops as an alternative to holding them at the conference hotel. This provides an excellent opportunity for workshop participants to work in a more creative space than a typical workshop, to interact with the local community, and to be situated closer to an urban environment. Workshop organizers should indicate if they would be interested in this option and provide some statement about the kind of creative space desired. We will notify organizers if this opportunity comes to fruition. By default, all workshops will be in the hotel.
