Special Session on Nature Inspired Creative Computing (SoNIC 2015)

SoNIC2015 is part of the 19th Asia Pacific Symposium on Intelligent and Evolutionary Systems (IES 2015)
November 22-25, 2015, Bangkok, Thailand

Nature inspired computing techniques have successfully been applied to many different kinds of creative applications, notably, in multimedia content generation and content analysis. The proposed symposium aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners in this field who are working on applying natural inspired computing techniques to applications in creative industries. It aims to provide the opportunity to promote, present and discuss on-going research in this area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1. Application of Nature Inspired Computing in Creative Industries: Creative computing for digital multimedia; Computer-generated contents for film, games and animation; Special visual effects; Edutainment; Generative art; Aesthetic evaluation, etc.

2. Art and Cognition: Art and the Brain; Creative process; Emotion and meaning in paintings, music, sculptures, poetry, etc.

3. Theoretical or Empirical analysis of Creative Computing Artefacts: Creativity and knowledge representation issues; Analysis of teaching and learning process of creative concepts, best practices, etc.
