The Creativity & Cognition Conference series began in 1993 and has
evolved into a lively multidisciplinary event combining research and practice.
Rigorous research is expanding as theoretic foundations are emerging and goals
become more well-defined. Successful practice manifests itself in a growing array of
creativity support tools for discovery and composition by software and other
engineers, diverse scientists, product and graphic designers, architects, new media
artists, musicians, educators, students, and many others. We believe that deeper
understanding of creative processes and improved support tools can make more people
more creative more of the time.
Creativity & Cognition 2007 is focused on theme of cultivating and
sustaining creativity: understanding how to design and evaluate computational
support tools, digital media, and socio-technical environments that not only empower
our creative processes and abilities, but that also encourage and nurture creative
mindsets and lifestyles.
