Call For Papers

Creativity represents a fundamental aspect of human intelligence. Several interdisciplinary approaches attempt to identify the correlation between them: are they part of the same process or do they represent different / distinct ones? The recent scholar advances in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning has exposed additional perspectives of creativity and intelligence relations, specifically applied in the field of intelligent, computer-­‐ mediated environments: Can machines be creative? Or, in a more technical sense, can creativity be modeled under an algorithmic perspective towards the implementation of machines that ultimately exhibit creativity or behave creatively?

Recent research efforts have indicated that the descriptive quality of several signal-­‐dependent features can be potentially used for the automated generation of multimedia content with appealing aesthetic, or emotionally enhanced content. The latter criteria represent a fundamental base for defining machine creativity within the rather limited scope of modern, interactive audiovisual arts.

Aim of this Special Session is to highlight issues of machine creativity within the aforementioned research directions and scope, pinpointing the collaborative facets that may emerge from the field of computer-­‐aided sonic/music and/or visual synthesis, under an artistic perspective. Therefore, submissions are encouraged that incorporate intelligent algorithms for audiovisual signal analysis and automatic multimedia composition, with focus on the potentialities that may emerge regarding the determination of quantities and techniques that can provide indications of machine-­‐oriented artistic creativity.


We invite original, high quality submissions with substantial contributions to this session, of which the topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• Affective and expressive multimedia interfaces
• Emotional descriptors for multimedia applications
• Emotion recognition
• Multimedia-­‐related aesthetic measures and analysis techniques
• Subjectively driven multimedia synthesis
• Multimedia transcription and annotation

Important Dates:

• Full Papers Due Date: March 1, 2014
• Notification: March 31, 2014
• Camera-­‐ready Paper Deadline: April 18, 2013

Submission of Papers:

Papers are invited from prospective authors with interests in this particular special session and related areas of application. All contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the review period. All papers are to be submitted electronically in PDF format to the special session organizers. Details of the required paper format are available at the official IISA 2014 website (­‐for-­‐authors/). For further information, please contact directly the Special Session Organizers.
