Call For Papers

We are pleased to invite you to “Creative Science Shanghai: A discussion about the future” which has the theme “High-Tech Product and Business Innovation”. The approach adopted by this workshop is that researchers are invited to submit short SciFi stories (scenarios) that extrapolate forward by 10+ years a vision for their area of research. This methodology is called Science-Fiction Prototyping (SFP) and has the aim of providing a means to enable society to have conversations about the kind of futures they would like (or not!). This workshop builds on earlier events, namely Creative Science 2010 (, Creative Science 2011 (, Creative Science 2013 (, AOM’13 (, BAM’13 ( and an "Outer Limits" ( workshop The Cloud-of-Things 2013 ( While this event is particularity well suited to researchers who would like to submit a vision for their research, this workshop is open to all and you would be welcome to register as presenter or as a member of the audience and simply enjoy the presentations. The goals of the workshop are to act as a forum to discuss the kind of technologies you would like to see developed (or not!) as part of future research programs.

The workshop will consist of a series of presentations which can take any number of forms such as using a PowerPoint to present the Science Fiction Prototype SFP, videos, animations, illustrations (drawings) or even other activities (previously a group acted out part of a sciences-fiction scenario). You can find examples of papers and presentations from earlier workshops on the ‘Creative-Science’ website at All papers accepted in the Workshops program will be published as a volume of the Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments Series of IOS Press (also ISI indexed) and electronically available through ACM Digital Library. If you are considering coming to this event, why not make it doubly worthwhile and submit a paper to the conference hosting this workshop, IE’14 (see Registration for Creative-Science 2014 includes admittance to all workshops, including two related events; an Intel and O’Reilly “21st Century Robot” maker event ( - which features 3D printing and building the Intel open source “Jimmy Robot”) see plus “Imagine 2014” a Creative Science Foundation sponsored workshop that takes participants through the process of writing SciFi-Prototypes and building prototypes.

Shanghai is a magnificent mega-city that embraces many of the visions Creative Science aspires to achieve so it’s an inspiring venue to meet and engage in discussion about the future; we hope you can join us!
