The 9th ACM Conference on Creativity and Cognition was held from 17-20 June 2013 at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Creativity and Cognition is an international conference focusing on creativity, technology and interaction. Running since 1993, these conferences have evolved into lively interdisciplinary meetings, bringing together artists and scientists, designers and educators, researchers and practitioners.
Creativity and Cognition examines human creativity in its many manifestations. It explores new techniques and tools to augment and amplify human creativity and considers the nature of that creativity and innovation in a range of contexts including art, science, performance, design and education.
In 2013 Creativity and Cognition will immediately follow the International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA), which will bring more than one thousand international artists, designers and technologists to Sydney. The combination of Creativity and Cognition and ISEA will mean that June 2013 will be a significant and exciting time for those working at the intersection of creativity and technology.
