ICCBR-15 Workshop on Experience and Creativity

28 September 2015, Frankfurt am Main

 
 

The goal of the ICCBR-15 Workshop on Experience and Creativity is to address common areas of interest in Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) and Computational Creativity (CC) by addressing research issues that are related to both communities. However, our goal is not to 'compare' CC systems and CBR systems. Our goal is to explore and analyze how the new and innovative (creativity) is related to, depends upon, and needs to break away to from the old and know (experience). The main focus of the workshop will be on exploring the relationship between past examples in a domain and computational creativity in that domain is an interesting an issue that has not been explicitly addressed in the past.


Workshop Proceedings

The Proceedings of the Workshop on Experience and Creativity are available at the CEUR website as Vol. 1520, together with all other ICCBR-2015 workshops:

Aims of the Workshop

The workshop is intended to be a lively, open, and thought-provoking event, not a mini-conference. We would ask submissions that are not only technical papers, but we'll rely strongly on position papers and discussion panels.


The relationship between past examples in a domain and computational creativity in that domain is an interesting and essential topic that has not been explicitly addressed. The goal of the workshop is to address common areas of interest in case-based reasoning (CBR) and Computational Creativity (CC) by addressing research issues that are related to both communities. Therefore, this workshop intends to attract researchers in both computational creativity (CC) and case-based reasoning (CBR) communities, taking into account that some CC systems are explicitly case-based, some are not but rely (past) examples. However, the Workshop's goal is not to 'compare' CC systems and CBR systems. The Workshop's goal is to explore and analyze how the new and innovative (creativity) is related to, depends upon, and needs to break away to from the old and know (experience). From this relationship, a number of more specific issues to be analyzed can arise:


- Learning from past examples and creativity

- The roles of similarity and dissimilarity measures in CC and CBR systems

- Analogy and blending using past examples to create novel artifacts.

- Examples may come from one's experience or from others: how they relate to creativity?

- Relation between general knowledge and specific examples in CC and CBR systems

- When and how is reuse and adaptation of past examples creative?

- What is the role of retrieval/discovery of relevant examples in CBR and creativity?


The list is by no means exclusive, and an important result of the workshop would be to achieve a consensual view on the issues that are important in understanding the relation from what we know or learn (experience) and the process of producing novelty (creativity).


Invited Speaker

Geraint  Wiggins, Queen Mary University of London


Submissions

We invite paper submissions that are not only technical papers, but position and discussion papers:


1) Regular papers on substantial, original and unpublished research, including technical descriptions of working systems and prototypes (10 pages)

2) Position papers on discussion issues, opinion pieces, etc. (5 pages).


The papers should be formatted following the instructions provided by ICCBR-15. The venue of the workshop and related travel information can be found in the ICCBR-15 website.


Submission website: EasyChair ICCBR-EC-15


Proceedings and camera-ready submissions

Proceedings of the Workshop will be published by ICCBR-15 on paper together with the other Workshops; we plan to publish later the accepted papers as post-proceedings online at CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org)


Accepted papers should be submitted in the required format as a PDF file whose pages are unnumbered. Additionally, this (non-exclusive) copyright letter should be signed by the author(s). Both documents should be archived is a zip file with the name of the first author added to the “ICCBR-EC” name and emailed to the Workshop Chair Joseph Kendall-Morwick (jkendallmorwick at capital dot edu) before August 21st, 2015.
