Trends in the area of computer graphics and interactive techniques aspire tools that support content creation and manipulation. Contributions to computer graphics such as 2D or 3D modeling, animation, rendering and imaging along with the emerging interactive techniques open up a broad space for developing specialized platforms that promote creativity, design, discovery, innovation, and composition. The SIGGRAPH Asia Workshop on Designing Tools for Crafting Interactive Artifacts aims at seeking ideas on creativity support tools for multisensory or interactive content creation, including design, evaluation and theoretical implications. The workshop also provides a platform for discussions on the challenges and the subsequent research opportunities in developing such tools.
We invite authors to submit 2-4 page papers (according to ACM SIGGRAPH guideline) in .pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org, describing research on or experiences related to the following three themes:
1. Design Implications for creativity support tools
• Design guidelines for domain specific creativity support tools
• Interaction techniques with creativity support tools
• Design challenges Target user groups
• User interface design addresses needs of amateurs and/or experts
• Goal and task-specific design constraints
• Supporting collaboration on creativity support platforms
• Challenges facing tool designers
2. Implications to evaluation and research methods
• End-user experiences
• Measures and criteria for evaluating creativity
3. Theoretical implications to creativity support tools
• Taxonomy for creativity support tool.
• Cognitive model for user creativity in traditional artwork and new media art
• Mechanisms that promote creative behaviors
A link to a video (up to 5 minutes) of an artifact, tool or service that explains how this work relates to the workshop and the questions, opportunities, or challenges it introduces is optional but recommended.
• Submissions must be original, unpublished work, written and presented in English, and will be reviewed by a committee of experts and accepted based on novelty and quality.
• The workshop proceeding will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
• At least one author of each accepted workshop paper is to register for SIGGRAPH Asia 2014 (full conference pass) by 15 September 2014, and give a presentation at the workshop.
• To recognize the contribution of workshop paper presenters, the presenters can apply for a 25% discount per accepted paper submission.
