About the Symposium Series

Recently, creativity and creative behaviour have become serious targets for AI study. Worthwhile inroads into the computational study of the creative mind have been made, and systems exhibiting creative behaviour have been constructed. This was reflected in the successful AISB symposia on creative and creativity-related topics at AISB'99 (Edinburgh), AISB'00 (Birmingham), AISB'01 (York) and AISB'02 (Imperial).

Call for Extended Abstracts

Extended abstract submissions are invited for the AISB'03 Symposium on AI and Creativity in Arts and Science.

This symposium aims to bring together researchers interested in all forms of creative reasoning. The aim is to allow work focussed on different aspects of creative behaviour to be compared and contrasted. To this end, the programme committee invites the submission of extended abstracts covering creative behaviour in the arts and the sciences, including, but not restricted to:

Accepted abstracts will exhibit a high standard of presentation, and will report on original, previously unpublished work.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 is expected to take place over the two of the three days of the Convention.


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. The document should NOT specify the authors or affiliations. 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.

All Submissions will be made by electronic means. Please email your extended abstract to: (Simon Colton).

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.
