CFP: Co-Creation Workshop @ ICCC 2017, Atlanta GA

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION CCW’172017: Co-Creation Workshop Workshop at ICCC 2017, June 19, Atlanta, GA Submit by April 21, 2017 =


The first Co-Creation Workshop (CCW2017) will be hosted in Atlanta, GA at the International Conference on Computational Creativity on June 19, 2017. Co-creation is a new interdisciplinary research topic that asks questions related to human-computer interaction, computational creativity, and cognitive science. It investigates how two or more agents interact to produce emergent meaning and artifacts in a participatory process of meaning building (i.e. participatory sense-making). Collaboration is a powerful way to inspire and support human cognition. However, the same dynamism and flexibility that make collaboration and co-creation so effective, also unfortunately make it difficult to quantify, evaluate, and operationalize in co-creative agents. This workshop is designed to bring together researchers investigating technical, empirical, and theoretical aspects of co-creation to share insights on the unique challenges of this application domain.

We expect a mix of technical demo papers describing co-creative systems and empirical papers investigating co-creative systems or elements of co-creation, such as: agent-based interactive co-creation, towards intelligent co-creation, support for collaborative creativity, interaction modalities for co-creation, engagement principles for co-creation, simulation of co-creation, and models of co-creation. The workshop will emphasize engaging in hands-on co-creative activities and discussion to understand co-creation through shared experience using practice-based research methods. Attendees can expect to learn about new co-creative systems, research methods and tools for quantifying and evaluating co-creation, and cognitive theories to help understand and model co-creation. The workshop format will include: ~3 hours for participants to present submitted demo and research papers, an interactive demo session during which participants try out and discuss the co-creative systems, and a data analysis activity where participants use new research methods and tools to quantify their experience with the co-creative systems at the workshop.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

  • Agent-based interactive co-creation

  • Towards intelligent co-creation

  • Support for collaborative creativity

  • Interaction modalities for co-creation

  • Engagement principles for co-creation

  • Simulation of co-creation
