Computational Models of Creativity in the Arts
A special issue of Digital Creativity Journal (18:1), Routledge
Deadline 14 August 2006

Digital Creativity Vol 18 No 1
Special issue on Computational Models of Creativity in the Arts
Digital Creativity is a quarterly journal published by Routledge.

Following the success of the workshop on Computational Models of
Creativity in the Arts held at Goldsmiths College, University of London

in May 2006 a special issue of the journal Digital Creativity is now
being prepared.

Call for Participation

This special issue will address the use of computational systems in the
fine and performing arts, literature, design and animation as well as the
associated fields of aesthetics, cognitive science, art history and cultural

theory. It especially invites those involved in the computational analysis
and modelling of creative behaviour to contribute.

It is intended that this call should interest the widest possible
constituency. However a very broad list of (nonexclusive) descriptors
might include:

•     the application of computational and generative methodologies in
       the arts and related creative disciplines
•     computational approaches to creativity, cognition and aesthetics
•     the application of artificial intelligence and artificial life
•     the application of evolutionary and adaptive systems
•     cultural applications of computing and digital electronics in general

Deadline and Timetable

The deadline for full papers is 14 August 2006. They should be sent
to the guest co-editors as editable documents attached to an email
