Call for Participation

This workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers
who are involved in 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 meet and share their experiences and explore the
potential of co-operative future ventures. It is intended that
this call should interest the widest possible constituency.
However a very broad list of (non-exclusive) descriptors might
* the application of computational and generative methodologies
   in the arts and related creative disciplines
* computational approaches to creativity, cognition and
* the application of artificial intelligence and artificial life
* the application of evolutionary and adaptive systems
* cultural applications of computing and digital electronics in
