Computational Aesthetics 2008 - CAe'08

Computational Aesthetics 2008 - CAe'08
18-20 June 2008, Lisbon, Portugal

Keynote Speakers: Pat Hanrahan, Stanford; Ernest Edmonds, UT Sydney

You are invited to participate in the fourth annual Symposium on Computational Aesthetics that will take place in Lisbon, Portugal from 18-20 June 2008.

Computational Aesthetics bridges the analytic and synthetic and integrates aspects of computer science, philosophy, psychology, and the fine, applied & performing arts and seeks to facilitate both the analysis and the augmentation of creative behaviour. It investigates the creation of tools that can enhance the expressive power of the fine and applied arts and furthers our understanding of aesthetic evaluation, perception and meaning.

Invited talks will be given by individuals involved in the technical, artistic and theoretical aspects of this young field to help participants to better understand what aesthetics is, what computer technology is currently capable of delivering, and to appreciate what is involved in the creative process.

Technical submissions are invited across the broad range of areas covered by Computational Aesthetics. Specific examples include, but are not limited to:

* Computational analysis and modelling of creative behaviour (AI, A-life)

* Artistic Image Transformation Techniques (colours, edges, patterns, dithering)

* Image Analogies, Style Transfer Methods

* Image Style and Salience Analysis (Paintings, Photographs, others)

* Visualization (perceptual or aesthetics based)

* Sketching, Simplification techniques (artistic, cognitive)

* Composition, Visual Balance, Layout

* Non-Photorealistic Rendering

* Empirically based Metrics of Aesthetical Attributes

* Applied Visual Perception (Colour Appearance, Spatial Vision, and other aspects)

A call for artist's presentations, artworks, performances, posters and demos will be issued later or visit the website.

Paper Submission:
Submitted papers should present original, unpublished work. The manuscripts must be written in English, must be formatted according to the EG publication guidelines, and should be no longer than 8 pages. The accepted technical and art papers will be presented at the symposium and will appear in the proceedings, which will be published in the Eurographics Workshop and Symposia Series and appear in the Eurographics and ACM Digital Libraries. Revised and expanded versions of selected papers will be published as a special issue of the Computers and Graphics Journal, to appear in 2009.
