Creative and Cultural Aspects and Applications of AI and Cognitive Science
Birmingham, April 2000

Call for Extended Abstracts CREATIVE AND CULTURAL ASPECTS AND APPLICATIONS OF AI AND COGNITIVE SCIENCE Supported by InterAction UK - The Network for Creative Media A symposium as part of AISB-00: ``Time for AI and Society" The 2000 Convention of the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and the Simulation of Behaviour 17th-20th April 2000, University of Birmingham, England
Extended abstract submissions are invited for the AISB 2000 Symposium on Creative and Cultural Aspects and Applications of AI and Cognitive Science. Following on from the successful AISB'99 Convention, whose theme was the study of creativity in AI and Cognitive Science, this symposium aims to bring together researchers interested in all aspects of creativity and cultural enterprise. The aim of holding one unified meeting, instead of several simultaneous smaller ones as at AISB'99, is to promote communication between those studying different aspects of creativity. The symposium will welcome submissions from researchers and practitioners in any of the following fields, though this list is by no means exclusive: + Cognitive Musicology & Intelligent Music Systems + Computer-Based Visual Art + Creative Language, especially humour and stories + Scientific Creativity + Methodologies for study and/or simulation of creative behaviour + Art works of all kinds whose creation involves computational creativity Accepted abstracts will exhibit a high standard of presentation, and will report on original, previously unpublished work. Only papers with genuine scientific content will be accepted; reports on artistic work should be accompanied by a clear statement of the scientific contribution of the abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will be asked to supply full papers for inclusion in a pre-proceedings published by AISB. The Symposium will take place over the full four days of the Convention. SUBMISSIONS Papers will be selected by blind anonymous peer review of extended abstracts of between two and four A4 pages (or 8.5in by 11in pages), including figure captions and foot/endnotes, but excluding title etc., bibliography, acknowledgments and the graphical bodies of figures. A cover page initial section should be supplied listing the paper title and the authors' names and affiliations, but the remainder of the document should NOT specify the authors or affiliations. Be especially careful that names and addresses are not included at the end of an email submission. To the extent possible, the body of the abstract should be written in such a way that the authors and affiliations cannot readily be identified from the content or citations. Submissions should be sent to the Programme Chair, by email to Submissions should be in one of the following forms: ASCII text; Unix-compatible PostScript; Portable Document Format (PDF). Submissions in other formats will not be read. PROGRAMME COMMITTEE Geraint A.
