*FINAL CALL FOR SHORT PAPERS AND DEMOS The 13th International Conference on
Computational Creativity (ICCC'22)*
*June 27 – July 1, 2022, Bozen-Bolzano, Italy *
*(physical event supporting some virtual presence) *
*Call for short papers *
**** Short Paper and Demos Deadline *** *Short papers deadline: April 13th
Notification: May 13th May 16th
Computational Creativity (or CC) is a discipline with roots in Artificial
Intelligence (AI), Cognitive Science, Engineering, Design, Psychology and
Philosophy, and which explores the potential for computers to be autonomous
creators in their own right.
ICCC is an annual conference that welcomes papers on different aspects of
CC, on systems that exhibit varying degrees of creative autonomy, on
frameworks that offer greater clarity for thinking about machine (and
human) creativity, on methodologies for building or evaluating CC systems,
on approaches to teaching CC in schools and universities or to promoting
societal uptake of CC as a field and as a technology, and so on.
**** ICCC Themes and Topics ****
Original research contributions are solicited in all areas related to
Computational Creativity research and practice, including, but not limited
- Applications that address creativity in specific domains such as
music, language, narrative, poetry, games, visual arts, graphic design,
product design, architecture, entertainment, education, mathematical
invention, scientific discovery, and programming.
- Applications and frameworks that allow for co-creativity between
humans and machines, in which the machine is more than a mere tool and
takes on significant creative responsibility for itself.
- Metrics, frameworks, formalisms and methodologies for the evaluation
of creativity in computational systems, and for the evaluation of how such
systems are perceived in society.
- Computational paradigms for understanding creativity, including
heuristic search, analogical and meta-level reasoning, and representation.
- Resource development and data gathering/knowledge curation for
creative systems, especially resources and data collections that are
scalable, extensible and freely available as open-source materials.
- Ethical considerations in the design, deployment or testing of CC
systems, as well as studies that explore the societal impact of CC systems.
- Cognitive and psychological computational models of creativity, and
their relation with existing cognitive architectures and psychological
- Computational models of social aspects of creativity, including the
relationship between individual and social creativity, diffusion of ideas,
collaboration and creativity, formation of creative teams, and creativity
in social settings.
- Perspectives on CC which draw from philosophical and/or sociological
studies in a context of creative intelligent systems.
- CC in the cloud, including how web services can be used to foster
unexpected creative behavior in computational systems.
- Debate papers that raise new issues or reopen seemingly settled ones.
Provocations that question the foundations of the discipline or throw new
light on old work are also welcome.
- High-level analyses of trends, biases, paradigms and historical shifts
in the computational treatment of creativity.
New papers reflecting all computational approaches and perspectives on
creativity are welcome, including e.g., symbolic approaches, neural and
statistical approaches, hybrid approaches, big-data approaches, rule-based
approaches, curated approaches, and so on. The onus is on authors to argue
and/or explicitly demonstrate the relevance of their work to the topic of
computational creativity. Manuscripts should be exclusively submitted to
ICCC, and may only be under review for ICCC for the duration of the review
process. All papers should be in-scope and comply with scientific norms.
The program chairs reserve the right to fast review papers that do not
abide by these requirements.
**** Short Paper Types *** *Short papers offer concise treatments of work
and ideas that are better suited to this concentrated format. We anticipate
submissions in the short paper category along any or all of the following
- *Nuggets and Gems:* short papers on any topic of CC for which one
might consider a long paper. In this case, the work will be succinct
enough, or at an early enough stage, to warrant the short paper format.
- *System Demonstrations:* Submissions for the show-and-tell session
should be made as short papers that are marked accordingly.
- *Debate Sparks:* The short paper format is ideal for provocations that
get the community talking. Is there some aspect of CC that you feel
deserves more attention from the community?
- *CC Translations:* Researchers in other fields often do work that we
in CC would see as related to our own. We invite those researchers to
present such work at ICCC, via a Translations short paper. This is
submitted as an extended abstract that summarizes your work in another
- *CC Bridges:* Research communities often retreat into silos and fail
to reach out beyond their own borders. A bridging short paper explicitly
seeks to create bridges to another field, to foster interdisciplinarity.
Unlike a Translations paper, a Bridge is written by a CC researcher wishing
to introduce new ideas from beyond our conventional horizons.
- *Late Breaking Results:* The results of your work (empirical or
system-related) may not have been ready for a long-paper submission.
Consider submitting that work now in a short-paper format.
- *Pilot Studies:* Have you conducted an initial foray into a research
topic that deserves attention? Plant a flag for your research with a short
- *Grand Challenges:* Do you have a proposal for a task that can bring
large parts of the community together in a productive collaborative effort?
- *Meta-Perspectives:* Do your experience of the CC community (such as
our conferences, workshops, reviewing processes, etc.) move you to write an
analysis of how we might do things differently and better?
- *Field Reports:* Have you taken your CC research into the field, where
practitioners and/or commercial partners have explored its uses first hand?
Consider writing a short paper about your experiences.
- *Event Reports:* Have you organized a CC-flavored event – a workshop,
a tutorial, a seminar series, a postgraduate course, a public debate, an
exhibition of CC outputs, or related outreach activity? Consider writing a
short paper on your experience and that of your audience.
**** DEMO papers ****
All authors of accepted papers can opt to also show a demo of their system
or prototype during the conference. You will be asked if you are interested
in this option during the submission process.
**** Submission, Paper and Presentation Format****
All short papers have the same length restriction (4 pages), and may focus
on any of the same themes or topics as long papers.
Papers should be anonymized and submitted as a PDF document formatted
according to ICCC style (which is similar to AAAI and IJCAI formats). You
can download the updated ICCC’22 template here: [
Submissions must be done before the deadline through the EasyChair platform
at the ICCC 2022 site: [https://easychair.org/conferences?conf=iccc20220].
To be included in the proceedings, each paper must be presented at the
conference by one of the authors. This means that at least one author will
have to register and participate in the session in which their paper is
presented, including the designated question-and-answer period.
In order to ensure the highest level of quality, all submissions will be
peer-reviewed and evaluated in terms of their scientific, technical,
artistic and/or cultural contribution, and therefore there will be only one
format for submission. However, the program committee will decide, for each
submission, the most appropriate format for presentation: talk, poster, or
