Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Journal Special Issue on

== Computational Creativity, Concept Invention, and General Intelligence ==

Tarek R. Besold, Kai-Uwe Kühnberger, Tony Veale

Special issue of the
Journal of Artificial General Intelligence
Published by De Gruyter


The targeted authors invited for submission to the special issue are researchers associated with the fields working in the development of computational models for creativity, concept formation, concept discovery, idea generation, and their overall relation and role to general intelligence. Furthermore, researchers coming from application areas, like computer-aided innovation (CAI) are welcome to submit papers for this volume.

We invite papers that make a scientific contribution to the fields of computational creativity and, idea generation and/orin the context of artificial general intelligence, with possible topics ranging from theoretical studies of human creativity, inventive capacities and intelligence (that in some way propose a computational model for the respective capability), through more practical contributions reporting on creative, inventive or generally intelligent computer systems (we particularly welcome implementations offering general or at least multiple sorts of results) and studies of systems and software supporting and/or guiding humans in the creative or inventive act, to application-based reports from fields like design, architecture or arts. Submissions connecting to several of the aforementioned topics are highly encouraged and welcome.

Due to the open nature of the targeted topics, we hope for contributions from a broad variety of subdisciplines within AI and Computational Creativity Research.


We particularly encourage submissions related to the following non-exhaustive list of topics:

- Computational Creativity & Creativity-Support Tools
- Analogical Reasoning
- Artificial General Intelligence
- Automated Story Generation
- Computer-Aided & Automated Mathematics
- Computer-Aided Innovation
- Computational Models for Conceptual Blending
- Automated Poetry Generation
- Automated Music Generation/Automated Composition
- Automated Art Generation
- Creativity in Problem Solving

Preference is given to contributions specifically addressing aspects related to and/or inspired by human creativity and offering a cognitively-inspired theory, model, or implementation thereof (such as, e.g., computational accounts of creative problem-solving, creative language production, concept blending, etc.).
Authors are encouraged to address the problems of modeling intelligence and creativity generally, and not to focus exclusively on specific domains or problems. While papers will likely focus on a given domain or problem, general insights into general intelligence should also be drawn.


Deadline for submissions is *** May 17, 2015 ***.

Details concerning the submission process, accepted paper formats, and an author's kit are available from

The journal in general accepts research articles, surveys, reviews, technical notes, and position statements. The submission must be original and unpublished, and not under review in another journal. Published conference or workshop papers can be submitted to the journal after substantial extension and enhancement. All submissions must be in English.

Contributions shall be submitted via the journal's submission system which can be found under and in addition shall be sent by email as .pdf to Tarek R. Besold,

When submitting their papers online, authors are asked to explicitly indicate that the submission belongs to the special issue by choosing the corresponding section.

When resubmitting substantially extended and enhanced versions of workshop or journal papers, authors are asked to shortly indicate the extensions/enhancements over the previous version in an accompanying letter also indicating a reference to the original publication.


Deadline for submissions: May 17, 2015
Feedback to authors: July 05, 2015
Submission of revised versions: July 26, 2015
Final notification of acceptance/rejection: August 09, 2015
Publication of the special issue: Summer/autumn 2015
