Call For Papers


AISB Symposium on Computational Creativity

AISB-2014, Goldsmiths, London, April 1-4 2014
(DEADLINE: 13:01:2013)



In recent years the field of computational creativity has received growing attention from a widening range of researchers, motivated by a sense that work in the area has broad interdisciplinary implications. The contributions of philosophers, cognitive psychologists, computer scientists, and artists are increasingly pointing to an open question: what would it take to convince a critical observer that a computational agent is behaving creatively?

Some argue a machine is creative if it simulates or replicates human creativity, suggesting, for instance, evaluation of AI systems via a Turing-style test. Others have conceived of computational creativity as an inherently different discipline, where computer generated (art)work should not be judged in the same terms as traditional output, i.e. as being necessarily producible by a human artist, or as having similar attributes to human art.

This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss recent technical and philosophical developments in the field, in order to assess the future of our relationship with computers and the way we perceive them.


* Novel systems and theories in computational creativity, in any domain, e.g. drawing and painting, music, storytelling, poetry, games, etc
* The evaluation of computational creative systems, processes and artefacts
* Theory of computational aesthetics
* Representational issues in creativity, including visual and perceptual representations
* Social aspects of computational creativity, and intellectual property issues
* Creative autonomy and constraint
* Computational appreciation of artefacts, including human artwork


Please make submissions via the EasyChair conference portal:

Please limit submissions to eight pages of text, including notes and bibliography, formatted according to AISB guidelines. Templates for AISB papers can be found here:


Papers will receive reviews and feedback from members of the programme committee. Successful papers will be published in the general conference proceedings of AISB 2014. At least one author of each successful paper will be expected to attend the symposium and to give a 30 minute presentation on the work.

We are considering the publication of a selection of extended and re-reviewed papers from the symposium in a journal special issue. More details will follow!


* Submission of papers in accordance with guidelines: 13 January 2014
* Notification of acceptance: 10 February 2014
* Submission of camera-ready papers: 24 February 2014
* Convention: 1-4 April 2014

The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulated Behaviour (AISB) will be celebrating its 50th year of existence in 2014. The occasion will be marked by a convention at Goldsmiths, University of London, from April 1-4, consisting of a range of symposia on a wide range of topics.

More information on the convention, including links to registration pages, are available on the convention's website:
