————————————————

Computational Creativity (or CC) is a discipline with its roots in
Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Engineering, Design, Psychology
and Philosophy that explores the potential for computers to be autonomous
creators in their own right. ICCC is an annual conference that welcomes
papers on different aspects of CC, on systems that exhibit varying degrees
of creative autonomy, on frameworks that offer greater clarity or
computational felicity for thinking about machine (and human) creativity,
on methodologies for building or evaluating CC systems, on approaches to
teaching CC in schools and universities or to promoting societal uptake of
CC as a field and as a technology, and so on.

**** Themes and Topics ****

Original research contributions are solicited in all areas related to
Computational Creativity research and practice, including, but not limited
to:

– Applications that address creativity in specific domains such as music,
language, narrative, poetry, games, visual arts, graphic design, product
design, architecture, entertainment, education, mathematical invention,
scientific discovery, and programming.

– Applications and frameworks that allow for co-creativity between humans
and machines, in which the machine is more than a mere tool and takes on
significant creative responsibility for itself.

– Metrics, frameworks, formalisms and methodologies for the evaluation of
creativity in computational systems, and for the evaluation of how systems
are perceived in society.

– Syntheses of AI/CC treatments of very different genres or domains of
creativity (e.g. art and science, humour and mathematics, language and
image, etc.)

– Computational paradigms for understanding creativity, including heuristic
search, analogical and meta-level reasoning, and representation.

– Resource development and data gathering/knowledge curation for creative
systems, especially resources and data collections that are scalable,
extensible and freely available as open-source materials.

– Ethical considerations in the design, deployment or testing of CC
systems, as well as studies that explore the societal impact of CC systems.

– Cognitive and psychological computational models of creativity, and their
relation with existing cognitive architectures and psychological accounts

– Innovation, improvisation, virtuosity and related pursuits investigating
the production of novel experiences and artefacts within a CC context.

– Computational accounts of factors that enhance creativity, including
emotion, surprise(unexpectedness), reflection, conflict, diversity,
motivation, knowledge, intuition, reward structures.

– Computational models of social aspects of creativity, including the
relationship between individual and social creativity, diffusion of ideas,
collaboration and creativity, formation of creative teams, and creativity
in social settings.

– Perspectives on computational creativity which draw from philosophical
and/or sociological studies in a context of creative intelligent systems.

– Computational creativity in the cloud, including how web services can be
used to foster unexpected creative behaviour in computational systems.

– Big data approaches to computational creativity.

– Debate papers that raise new issues or reopen seemingly settled ones.
Provocations that question the foundations of the discipline or throw new
light on old work are also welcome.

Papers on computational paradigms of all kinds – from symbolic to
statistical to deep learning models, as well as hybrid approaches – are
welcome, provided they address pertinent aspects of CC as sketched above.

**** Paper Types ****

We welcome the submission of five different types of papers: Technical
papers, System or Resource description papers, Study papers, Cultural
application papers and Position papers.

**** Important Dates ****

Submissions due: March 8, 2020

Acceptance notification: April 20, 2020

Camera-ready copies due: May 22, 2020

Conference: June 29 – July 3, 2020

Ausstellung «Wie wir die Welt sehen» – 07.02. – 13.03.2020 – Bochum

Einladung zur Ausstellung «Wie wir die Welt sehen» – 07.02. – 13.03.2020 – Bochum

Liebe Mitglieder der Gesellschaft für Kognitionswissenschaft,

vom 07.02. – 13.03.2020 findet in Bochum die Ausstellung „Wie wir die Welt sehen – Philosophie und Kognition“ statt, zu der wir herzlich einladen! Anhand von spannenden Illusionen zum Betrachten, Anfassen und Ausprobieren nehmen wir die BesucherInnen mit auf eine Reise durch die Geheimnisse unserer Wahrnehmung. Flankiert werden alle Ausstellungsobjekte von Erklärungen und Hinweisen zur theoretischen Bedeutung. PC-Stationen mit Videos und Animationen nebst ausführlicher philosophischer Erläuterungen ergänzen die Exponate. „Nehmen wir die Welt so wahr, wie sie ist oder konstruieren unsere Gehirne sie, wie wir sie sehen wollen?“ – unter dieser Leitfrage steht die gesamte Ausstellung. Mit unserer Auswahl an Illusionen und Wahrnehmungseffekten möchten wir einen Anstoß geben, über diese Frage nachzudenken.

Wir würden uns freuen, Sie bei der Ausstellung zu begrüßen. Die Ausstellung ist offen für alle Besucher – sagen Sie also Ihren interessierten Kommilitonen, Freunden und Verwandten Bescheid! Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter: www.wie-wir-die-welt-sehen.de <http://www.wie-wir-die-welt-sehen.de/>

Für Sie als KollegInnen und Kollegen kann es auch als ein Beispiel für den immer mehr von der DFG eingeforderten „Outreach“ dienen, den wir im Kontext der Erhöhung der Aufmerksamkeit für Kognitionswissenschaften generell fördern möchten, insbesondere von Seiten der Gesellschaft für Kognitionswissenschaften.

Die Eröffnungsveranstaltung der Ausstellung „Wie wir die Welt sehen” findet im Blue Square am Freitag, den 7. Februar 2020 um 15:15 Uhr statt. Um schriftliche Anmeldung an sekretariat-newen@rub.de <mailto:sekretariat-newen@rub.de> wird gebeten.

Viele Grüße
Albert Newen und Nicolas Lindner

Fee: € 250 (late fee after February 15 will be € 300)
More information and registration: www.cognitive-modeling.com/springschool <http://www.cognitive-modeling.com/springschool>

We would like to remind you of the 5th annual Groningen Spring School on Cognitive Modeling.

As last year, the Spring School will offer courses on the ACT-R, Nengo, and PRIMs paradigms, as well as a course on error-driven learning. These courses consist of daily lectures, as well as hands-on tutorials that will give you practical experience with the topic.

As a special feature for our 5th anniversary this year, we are offering a lecture series on dynamical systems. This lecture series should be interesting for anyone looking into modeling cognitive dynamics. It can be combined with each of the 4 courses mentioned above, but we especially recommend it in combination with Nengo for everyone interested in neuromorphic computing.

The first day of the Spring School will provide an introduction to all five topics. From day two, spring school students will be asked to commit to one topic, for which they will attend lectures as well as hands-on tutorials. In addition, students can sign up for a second topic, for which they will attend lectures only. All students are invited to join a series of plenary research talks on the different paradigms.

The early registration deadline ends on February 15, so make sure to sign up before then.

Please let us know if you have any questions or check the website for more information: www.cognitive-modeling.com/springschool <http://www.cognitive-modeling.com/springschool>.

to bring together researchers from different fields who have a common
interest in using eye tracking for research questions related to
visuospatial information processing and spatial decision-making.

After four successful ET4S events in 2013, 2014, 2018, and 2019, the 5th
edition of ET4S will be organized as a co-located event at ETRA 2020
(https://etra.acm.org/2020/index.html), the ACM Symposium on Eye
Tracking Research & Applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Gaze-based Interaction with Maps and Other Spatial Visualizations
* Evaluation of Cartographic and Other Spatial Visualizations with Eye
Tracking
* Gaze-aware Mobile Assistance and Location-based Services
* Navigation Studies, Wayfinding, and Eye Tracking
* Eye Tracking in Traffic Research (e.g., Car Navigation, Public
Transport, Aviation)
* Visual Perception and Exploration of (Indoor and Outdoor) Space
* Landscape Perception
* Visuospatial Cognition Research
* Gaze During Spatial and Spatio-temporal Decision Making
* Spatio-temporal Analysis and Visualization of Eye Tracking Data
* Individual and Group Differences in Visuospatial Information Processing
* Eye Tracking in XR (VR/MR/AR) for Spatial Research
* Eye Tracking in 3D Space
* Multi-user Eye Tracking for Collaborative Spatial Decision Making

*Submission Guidelines *
We call for regular and work-in-progress papers. Your submissions should
be prepared following the sigconf instructions. To prepare the content
of the PDF file, SIGGRAPH encourages authors to use the following
templates for LaTeX and Word, respectively:

Interdisciplinary College IK2020. Focus theme: Curiosity, Risk & Reward

Dear Colleagues, Friends of IK and any Curious Minds,

as the co-chairs for the Interdisciplinary College (IK) 2020 spring school, we are excited to announce that the programme for the event is now complete and that the registration is open.

In case you have not heard about it, IK is an annual one-week spring school, which offers a dense, intensive, and state-of-the-art course program in neurobiology, neural computation, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and related areas. It is aimed at graduate students, postgraduates, and researchers from academia and industry. By combining humanities, science, and technology, the unique event aims to intensify dialogue between – and connectedness of – researchers in the various disciplines.

IK 2020 will take place in Günne at Lake Möhnesee in Germany (near Dortmund) from March 13 to 20, next year. The deadline for early bird registrations is January 7th, 2020.

The focus theme will be *Curiosity, Risk & Reward: Shaping Autonomous Intelligence*. Curiosity is an exciting, yet comparatively underexplored interdisciplinary research topic that is currently seeing growing interest from many areas, including artificial intelligence, decision making, robotics, as well as learning and development in biological systems.

The diverse program will include introductory, focused, as well as practical courses and more.

As selected highlights, we will be able to host evening lectures by:

Celeste Kidd, University of California, Berkeley
Bing Brunton, University of Washington, Seattle
Alex Kacelnik, Oxford University
Tanja Schultz, Universität Bremen

For further information, please see the attached flyer and:
https://www.interdisciplinary-college.org/

Please feel encouraged to share this announcement with your groups or with any further colleagues or students.

We thank you for your consideration and support and are hoping to see you, or some of your colleagues or group members at IK 2020 next year.

Yours sincerely,

Jan Smeddinck
Katharina Rohlfing
Terry Stewart
