5th International Workshop on Computational Creativity, Concept Invention, and General Intelligence 2016 August 20/21, 2016, Bozen-Bolzano/Italy

The targeted audience for the workshop are researchers associated with fields working in the development of computational models for creativity, concept formation, concept discovery, idea generation, and their overall relation to general intelligence. Furthermore, researchers coming from application areas, like computer-aided innovation (CAI) are welcome to submit papers for this workshop. Also, in 2016 especially researchers working on logical methods related to creativity, concept formation, and conceptual change are invited to submit original research contributions or opinion papers to the workshop.

We invite papers that make a scientific contribution to the fields of computational creativity, idea generation and/or artificial general intelligence, with possible topics ranging from theoretical studies of human creativity, inventive capacities and intelligence (that in some way propose a computational model for the respective capability), through more practical contributions reporting on creative, inventive or generally intelligent computer systems (we particularly welcome implementations offering general or at least multiple sorts of results) and studies of systems and software supporting and/or guiding humans in the creative or inventive act, to application-based reports from fields like design, architecture or arts. Submissions connecting to several of the aforementioned topics are highly encouraged and welcome.

Due to the open nature of the targeted topics, we hope for contributions from a broad variety of subdisciplines within AI and related areas.

Relevant keywords include:

- Computational Creativity & Creativity-Support Tools
- Analogical Reasoning
- Artificial General Intelligence
- Automated Story Generation
- Computer-Aided & Automated Mathematics
- Computer-Aided Innovation
- Computational Models for Conceptual Blending
- Automated Poetry Generation
- Automated Music Generation/Automated Composition
- Automated Art Generation
- Creativity in Problem Solving

* Call for Papers *
*******************

Anybody with an interest in the questions raised above is invited to submit a research or position paper as basis for discussions during the workshop.

Submissions should be made via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=c3gi2016

Accepted papers will be published online in the "Publication Series of the Institute of Cognitive Science" (PICS, ISSN 1610-5389), a scientific series from the Institute of Cognitive Science, University of Osnabrueck, unless the authors instruct us otherwise.

As in previous years the organisers will arrange for a post-workshop journal special issue or a collection of expanded contributions depending on the quality and number of submitted and accepted workshop papers.
