Special Track "AI and the Arts"

Call for Artwork and Demos (added Jan 28th, 2015)

Call for Papers

There is a growing interest in developing artificial intelligence techniques that can have a role in the production of works of art. Research in this field has already produced AI systems that can  produce outputs in fields such as music, fine arts, storytelling and performance either autonomously or in collaboration with humans.  The main motivation for this special track is to explore how AI  can help in generating artistic works and how working in the arts helps in moving forward the field of AI. Relating to this motivation we suggest a number of questions that, among others, papers  submitted to this special track could look to address:
  • In what way can AI give us an understanding of the human creative process?
  • When building AI systems for producing creative artefacts should we aim to mimic our own creative behaviour, the behaviours we find in nature, or design completely new mechanisms?
  • Under what conditions could work produced solely by machine be considered as art?
  • What is the role of AI in producing systems that can inspire more of us to engage with the creative process in order to produce art?
  • What are the kinds of interactions with computational systems that will inspire, provoke, and challenge us into meaningful creative dialogues with machines?
  • Are current value systems that humans use to experience and evaluate art suitable for computer-created art, or are new value-systems required?
  • How can AI help us re-conceptualise current methods of interaction between computers and people so as to better encourage creative flow and feedback?
  • How can AI help develop our relationships with computers to encourage new opportunities for experiencing both human- and computer-generated creative artefacts?

*New* We have reached an agreement with most major conferences to jointly filter out similar papers that are submitted to multiple conferences without notifying the organizers.  Please note that multiple submission are not allowed.

Papers focusing on the interplay between AI and the arts, submitted to this special track will be reviewed according to the same standards as all other papers. The authors of accepted papers will additionally have the option of showing a demo related to what they have presented in the paper. In addition, submissions of demos without submitting a full paper, as well as video submissions are also welcome. The demos and videos will be reviewed according to the standards regarding demos and video submissions of past IJCAI conferences.
Please consult the main IJCAI 2015 Call For Papers at /call-for-papers for important dates, detailed submission instructions, (including formatting guidelines and electronic templates), review process, and important policies (on multiple submissions, confidentiality and conflict of interest).
We do not accept supplementary materials to extend the paper in IJCAI 15
